Farmhouse Stencil Love

Where has the time gone? Here we are in the middle of December already and I still haven't crossed off all the names on my Christmas list. I've been so busy the last several weeks preparing for my holiday craft shows, and I just finished the last one for the year. Yes!

In the middle of the jewelry making marathon, I was in the mood for cooking up a few more signs.

I've been looking forward to using my FARMHOUSE stencil from *Funky Junk Interiors Old Sign Stencils.
After giving the box lid a light white-washing, I attached a large hook to the back and two chippy old hooks to each side.

This hefty 5' long wooden box with a hinged lid had been stashed in my garage for ages. The lid was screaming for some FARMHOUSE love, and I'm sure the box will be getting a makeover too. 
What on earth is a 2" hammerhead mole?

With just a fraction of an inch to spare, the large FARMHOUSE stencil was a perfect fit. After the stencil was removed, I filled in the open spaces of the letters (optional) with a small paint brush. No need to remove the rusty piano hinge...I love the rust! 

While I had the FARMHOUSE stencil sitting on the table, I couldn't resist one more sign:

This Christmas Tree Farm sign was stenciled on an old cabinet door found at the salvage yard; I didn't even have to remove the hinges or paint it. I used a combination of the large FARMHOUSE stencil and the Christmas Blend Hot Cocoa stencil. It needed a little something extra, so I added two mini chalkboard tags.

*The stencils were provided to me by Funky Funk Interiors to try out, but opinions are always my own.
