Supplies you’ll need to make your own stenciled cutting board:
- Small Decorative Breadboard/Cutting Board
- Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel Stain by Dixie Belle
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Paint Brush
- Mini Buffalo Plaid Transfer
- Almond Chalkology Paste
- Bark Chalkology Paste
- Sage Chalkology Paste
- February Club Couture Transfer – This transfer is only available until February 29, 2020 or while supplies last, so hurry & grab one now!!
- Small Squeegee
- Fuzzing Cloth
- Transfer Trimmers
Let’s start by painting the base layer on the cutting board.
You’ll begin with a blank raw wood cutting board like the one show above.
Now add a layer of the Dixie Belle Voodoo Gel in the color Tobacco Road. I just rub the color onto the surface with a clean cloth and remove excess.
Once the gel stain is dry, you’ll add a layer of Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in the color Fluff. To get the look I was going for, I started in the center with a dry brush, feathering out toward the edges as to keep the stain showing through. My goal was to get a nice base in the center so the words show up nicely.
You can see the feathering technique you’re going for in the example below. Once both layers are dry, you are ready to move onto stenciling.
Now it’s time to add the stenciled accents using Chalk Couture!
For this project, I used Chalk Couture products because they are the easiest way to add stenciled images to any surface! Here’s how I created this layered look using February’s Club Couture transfer.
- First, I used the Mini Buffalo Plaid transfer to create a base layer over what I already painted on the board. Notice how I layered the Mini Buffalo Plaid in a random and haphazardly way all along the edges as to not have a crisp clean line. I used Chalkology Paste in the color Almond for this layer.
- Next, you will use the February Club Couture transfer and Chalkology Paste in the color Bark to add all the lettered accents. To do so, simply place your transfer, add a layer of the paste and wipe back the excess. Work quickly and remove the transfer before the paste has time to dry.
- Finally, use your Sage Chalkology Paste to add the wreath portion of the transfer.
