Welcome back to another fun Creative Blog Hop where a group of some of my talented blogging pals get together each month and create! For this project, I am sharing how to make a Farmhouse Fresh Flower Market Sign. The inspiration for this project came about because we are making some little changes to our deck area and I wanted something to match our Flower Market Bench Seats. It’s quite empty out there at the moment and it’s a place that we love to spend a lot of our time, especially in the warmer months. So there will be lots of projects to share with you in the coming months!

Supplies needed:

 

Step 1 – Paint the backing of the frame using Casement. One coat is enough and lightly distress.

Step 2 – Line up your stencil so that it is centred and apply to the backing board. If using a non-sticky stencil use some painters tape to secure your stencil.

Step 3 – Pop some black paint out onto an old tile or plate and dip your sponge into the paint. Pat the sponge a few times on the tile to remove some of the paint. You don’t want to much paint on there to prevent bleed through. Start dabbing the paint onto your stencil.

Handy Tip

Start in the middle of your design and work out to the edges. This prevents you smudging paint everywhere.

Step 4 – Once dry, remove the stencil. Distress to your liking and seal with wax.

Step 5 – Rinse out your sponge and wring out most of the water. Pop out some Chocolate Paint which will act as a stain on the frame. Using the same technique as you did with the stencilling dap off any excess paint and wipe onto the frame. If it’s too light just reapply some more paint until you get the desired colour.

  1. Sam,
    You are the master at signs, I bow down to you! I have never made one and you have inspired me to try. I’ve used stencils and they always bled through. I’ll try your method next time. Thanks for helping on this blog hop, you are the best!

  2. Love this sign Sam and your stencil work is so neat and tidy it looks so professional. I don’t have much luck with stencils. It’s always one huge smudgy mess and I end up distressing it to bits so you can’t see all the mistakes. I’ll keep trying though 😉
