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!
How to make a Farmhouse Fresh Flower Market Sign
- Frame – I used the same style that I made for our Serendipity Sign which was 13″x 19″
- Flower Market Stencil – I made my design using my Silhouette Cameo but this Potting Shed stencil from Amazon would work well too!
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Casement
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Chocolate
- Miss Mustard Seed Beeswax
- Paint Brush
- Makeup Pad
- Fusion Mineral Paint – Coal Black
- 120 Grit Sanding Block
Don’t have time to make one? Don’t worry I’ve got you covered you can find them over in my Shop!
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 Coal Black 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.
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.
Pop the sign back into the frame and voila! There you have a fun Fresh Flower Market Sign.
So we still have a long way to go with decorating and making the deck cosier but at least this Farmhouse Fresh Flower Market Sign is a start.

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!
Thank you, Janine! I love making them!
A great sign, Sam. Especially nice alongside the green plants.
Thank you so much, Amalia!!
Your signs are the BEST! Love this one and it looks amazing against the brick wall. I think my front porch needs one of these!
Thank you so much, Katrin! So glad you like it!
What a cute sign my friend! I need to get a cutting machine so I can make some cute and easy signs.
They are super addictive, Toni! Thank you!
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 😉
Thank you so much, Michelle! No, don’t give up!! Practice makes perfect!
Beautiful sign, your letters are so crisp. It looks great on your dresser.
I NEED to make one…like right now!!!
Another one of your talents….sign maker extraordinaire. Love it.
This came out great – really looks hand done and time worn.
So glad you like it, Susan! Thank you!! 🙂
