DIY Stenciled Christmas Buffalo Check Vintage Sled

       Today I'm stenciling a vintage sled with 
one of my favorite stencils.

DIY Stenciled Christmas Buffalo Check Vintage Sled.

I began with a vintage sled I've had laying around for a long time.

I painted it with one coat of Fusion Mineral Paint in coal black.

The one coat of coal black gave the sled a great black stained effect as the paint absorbed into the dry wood. 

Next I pounced on red craft paint on my favorite buffalo check stencil by Old Sign Stencils.

It's easy to do with a tiny amount of paint in a tray and a sponge pouncer

I was finished in just a few minutes and I let the paint dry.

I reattached the original rope and added a red bow and greenery.
