Fresh Cut Stenciled Christmas Sign

My favorite decorations to make are Christmas signs. 

I've made and sold hundreds of them and they are all different. 

Today I'm combining a new stencil with an old stencil and a piece of reclaimed wood.

I think the reclaimed wood I use is one of the keys to this pretty sign.

I had this pallet that used to be part of a children's wooden table. 

(I save everything)

Please follow the highlighted links to products I recommend and more Homeroad DIY projects.

Sanded reclaimed wooden board

This board had a coat of white paint on it so I sanded it off with an electric sander

I left little patches of the old paint to add to the look, I think it looks like snow. 

Next, I coated the board with hemp oil

The hemp oil brings out the rich color of the aged wood.

I used the Christmas Trees stencil from Old Sign Stencils to stencil trees across the reclaimed wood. 

Old Sign Stencils are made so well, you'll be using them for years!

First, I used a lighter green paint then I dabbed some darker paint over the top to give the trees dimension. 

As you can see I used only the tree part of this stencil. 

You can see how I used this stencil in different ways on this shades of grey holiday sign and on this Christmas crate

Next, I used another Old Sign Stencil called Mini Christmas Trees.

This stencil has several options for words on the stencil. 

I chose the Fresh Cut Christmas Trees part of the stencil. 

I can't wait to try all of them!

But I'm not finished yet, now I wanted to add a little snow and shading to my trees. 

I used black and white craft paint to more dimension then added a little snowy grass with a foam brush

Adding dimension and details to the stencil really takes it to the next level. 

I added a black and white gingham ribbon to hang my sign.
