Want to make this DIY farmhouse, rustic style sign to spruce up your spring?
Read on to see how to make it!
For this project you will need:
-A wooden sign, we got ours at Walmart in the craft aisle!
-The “Fresh Market Flowers” stencil
-Frog tape, or regular painters tape
-Stenciling paint brush
-Paper plate and towels
-Acrylic paint, we chose to use the colors black, burnt umber, and metallic gold
Let’s get started!
First spray the backside of your stencil with the spray adhesive. If it pools in areas just press the sticky side of your stencil onto a piece of paper and peal it off. Then press your stencil onto your wood board, if it isn’t centered just peal it off and reposition your stencil. Next tape around the boarder of the stencil with frog tape to prevent getting paint on the rest of the board.
Now its time to mix your paint, so just squeeze a dollop of each of the paints onto a paper plate and swirl them together until you get the color you want. If you aren’t sure, just test a bit of it on the back of your board!
To apply the paint to the board, swirl your brush into the paint, swirl the bristles into the paper towel until the bristles feel dry to the touch. Then just swirl the paint through the stencil onto your wooden board. Apply many thin coats of paint until you get the opacity you would like!
Now just peal off the tape and stencil and enjoy!
