Let’s make some Stenciled Wooden Christmas Trees using NEW Dixie Belle Chalk Paint Stencils & wooden tree cutouts from Twin Knobs Woodworks.
This set of Stenciled Wooden Christmas Trees came together so nicely thanks to some NEW stencils from Dixie Belle Chalk Paint. You’ll see below that the stencils are easy to use and add a unique touch to the Wooden Christmas Tree cutouts I got from Twin Knobs Woodworks. Let me show you exactly what I did when creating my set of trees.

I started this project with a set of wooden Christmas tree cutouts from Twin Knobs Woodworks. You can purchase a set of these trees by clicking HERE.
Begin by applying a base coat of No Pain Gel Stain in the color Walnut to all three trees.
I apply my stain with a clean cloth. Just be sure to wear gloves so you don’t stain your hands.
Let the stain dry before moving onto the next part of the project.
Morocco Stencil Tree
The first stencil I used was the Morocco Stencil.
To begin stenciling, you’ll want to place your stencil on your surface as shown above.
Then use a makeup sponge to apply thin even layers of paint to the surface. It may take a few coats of paint to get your desired coverage. I used Moonshine Metallics in Steel Magnolia by Dixie Belle Chalk Paint.
Once you’ve achieved your desired paint coverage, remove the stencil to reveal your finished product.
Royal Damask Stencil Tree
Next, I used the Royal Damask Stencil.
To create this look I first applied a coat of Fluff to the entire surface. Then I used the same makeup sponge technique, as shown above, to add my stencil details using Moonshine Metallics in the color Steel Magnolia.
As you can see, I didn’t add paint to the trunk of this tree, but I did add a coat of Fluff to the base.
Moonshine Metallics Tree
For this tree, I painted the entire surface with the color Fluff to begin, leaving the trunk unpainted.
You can see that I used sweeping motions when applying the paint to create the look of “needles” on the tree.
Once that was dry, I added a coat of Moonshine Metallics in the color Steel Magnolia. I used that same sweeping motion to apply this coat also.
Here’s a look at the finished product.
Houndstooth Stencil Tree
Just for fun, I added the Houndstooth Stencil to the back of one of the trees.
I used the same makeup sponge application here as well.
This is such a fun pattern!!
