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. 
Rustic Farmhouse Sign with Old Sign Stencils
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.

  1. Love seeing your Farmhouse and Farm stencils Betsy. We just got a Re-Store in our town and I am going to see if they have small doors. Great idea.

  2. Your farmhouse sign is fabulous. Glad you are done with all your shows for the year and can enjoy the holidays now. This time of year goes too quickly. Happy Holidays.

  3. These are wonderful, Betsy! Love the big Farmhouse stencil! I have been sign painting, too! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  5. Both signs are so beautifully done! Your bridge gap filling... what bridges? That is hard to accomplish!

    I love the mix you created for the Christmas sign. Fab combo!

    And thank you for the mention of the stencils! :)

  6. Oh I adore your sign! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  7. Wow, that is a big stencil and it looks great! I love how you used half of it on the other sign. I am finally done with my shopping....two weeks late! I always try to be done by December 1st!

  8. I love how you attached the little bottle on one end of the sign.

    I just bought a set of large (10") stencils at Tuesday Morning for $.99 and now I just need to find a piece of wood.

  9. Both of your signs are so cute, but the Tree Farm one is my fave!!! I know you enjoy your craft fairs but are then also glad when they are over for the season! Enjoy getting ready for Christmas. I have a tree up and one set of cubbies decorated. That just might be it for this year! Hugs!

  10. Love Donna's stencils they are so fun to work with. These signs are great really like the Farmhouse one and the added details. Merry Christmas!
