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
- Americana Lamp Black Acrylic Paint
- 120 Grit Sanding Block
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.
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.

Don’t have time to make the sign, it’s ok I have got you covered. You can find them over in my shop.
