I started this project with a blank pallet wood sign. The twine was already added for hanging, so all I had to do was add my stencil & embellishments.
You’ll notice that I only use the bottom portion of the stencil for my project. That’s PRO TIP! Mix up your creations by using only portions of stencils or by mixing and matching them!
Align your stencil so that it is where you want it on your surface. I have mine moved to one side so that I can add the embellishments on the other end.
Once your stencil is in place and you have it taped down, begin adding your paint using a makeup sponge.
When stenciling any surface, pounce the paint on in thin layers. This will allow you to add more layers of paint to create the look you want. It will also help prevent your paint from bleeding.
Once you have finished adding your paint, remove your stencil and let the surface dry.
Now you are ready to add your embellishments.
I embellished mine with a piece of scrap ribbon, some twine and a pine sprig.
To recreate this look. Wrap the ribbon around the sign, cut to size and glue in place. Then wrap over the ribbon with the twine and either glue or tie in place. Finally, place your sprig and glue it in place.
Once your glue is dry, your piece is ready to hang!
