9 Materials
I am discovering that I have a passion for Stenciling, who would have thought!
I created a Fall Candle stencil back in September that Hometalk featured in their newsletter. So when a dear friend and a group of talented bloggers got together for this Christmas stencil blog hop I was more than ready to get my paint brushes back out.
I knew from the beginning that I wanted to use these rustic cedar planters from an earlier project that we did to put my homegrown/ Cedar Christmas Tree in.
For this project you are going to need some salvaged wood or purchase some as you are going to be making a custom sign to stencil.

You will need a power saw, saw horses and measuring tape to complete this project.

Step 1. Cut your sign

Step 2. Sand your sign

Step 3. Paint your sign

Step 4. Let sign dry completely before applying stencil.
Measure & saw wood to create custom sign.
When using power tools always wear protective eye covering and if you are not used to working with power saws have someone help you who has. Be very careful as they are powerful and dangerous tools.

1. Cover your work area

2. Secure stencil with painters tape

3. Using paper plates put a dollop of paint on each plate

4. Using a brush with not too much paint begin to apply paint to stencil
