Start by selecting the board you wish to stencil on. If you don't have one with the color you desire then apply a coat of paint to your surface.
Once you have applied your paint, use your heat gun to speed up the drying process
If you have other boards repeat steps 1 and 2.
Apply a second coat of paint if your board needs it.
Place your stencil down and see where you want to place your design on your board.
Using a pouncer/dauber dip your pouncer in your paint color and pounce over the stencil.
Allow your first section to dry. Use a heat gun to speed up the process. Now line your stencil up to stencil your next section onto your board.
Switch up your paint color on words or items you wish in your Christmas sign.
To add some special effects to your sign move your stencil over a little and put a different color over the top of the word. This allows you to do a showing feature on your wording.
Use your heat gun to dry your paint.
Add some green paint to stencil some of your trees green when using this same stencil.
Using a different stencil add snowflakes using white paint around your sign.
