Make Your Own DIY Farmhouse Decor

Y’all I am loving this DIY Farmhouse decor sign. It is one of my favorite wooden signs I’ve done recently! It hangs in my kitchen now like it was made for it! Having this blessed wooden sign with a wreath on my walls just squeals farmhouse decor to me. That is why I love it so much. Since our house is an old farmhouse dated back to 1902. I think it fits perfectly.

With just a scrap piece of wood, a stencil, and a wreath I was able to create this fabulous look. If you are wanting this same look grab your supplies below and let’s get started. To see exactly how I did this in thirty minutes or less check out the tutorial below.

The best thing about stencils and I have said this more than once is you get to make your own wall decor exactly how you want it! You get to pick your wood base color, your text color, and your embellishments. Making this wooden blessed sign with my own supplies instead of buying one helped me get exactly what I was wanting to hang in my kitchen. You too can make your own decorations to match your style by following these simple steps below.

Supplies:

How to Make a Wooden Blessed Sign

  1. Using a piece of board painted black or anything you have around your home that you know would work.
  2. Lay your stencil down close to the bottom edge so you can leave room for your wreath you will add later.
  3. Start applying your paint using your finger daubers and gently working from top to bottom applying paint over your stencil. I used an off white color.
  4. Once you are done filling in the stencil pull it up and spray with a miniwax polyurethane spray.
  5. Allow time for your paint dry before moving on to the next steps. You could also speed up the process by using a heat gun.
  6. Now time to attach your wreath above your stenciled letters.
  7. To attach the green wreath use ribbon and start by tieing ribbon to the top of wreath in a knot. Pull wreath up until hanging just above the word Blessed. You will dropping the ribbon over the top. Pull until you have it in the right place. Staple the excess ribbon to back of wooden sign to hold it in place.
  8. Make a little bow and hot glue to top right of wreath.

How Do You Stencil Without Smearing?

There are a few tips and tricks I use to help keep from smearing when using a stencil and they are:

  • Do not put too much paint on your dauber
  • Use painters tape to secure your stencil, that way it doens’t move on you
  • Let the paint dry as you work
  • Do not brush from side to side work from up and down. This means daub from top to bottom not left to right!

Do you let the paint dry before removing the stencil from the board?

No, you do not have to let the paint completely dry before removing the stencil from the wooden board. However, I do suggest you work slowly as you add paint to each letter and that will help allow the paint to dry some before you have to remove your stencil.
