Winter Snowflake Sign with Stain over Stencil Technique

I found this little snowflake at the Dollar Tree and I had been wanting to try the technique of staining over a stencil. It is such a fun and easy technique and I am excited to have this fun snowflake to hang up during the winter months.

Here is the little wooden snowflake I found at Dollar Tree.

I placed my Folk Art Holiday Stencil on top of the snowflake and used Folk Art Home Decor Chalk Paint.

To stencil, you put some paint on your stencil brush (I’m using a Plaid stencil brush). You tap it up and down on a paper plate to get the extra off your brush. Too much and the paint will bleed under the stencil. You then tap the brush up and down on top of the stencil.

Carefully lift the stencil and let the paint dry completely.

After the paint is dry brush on your stain. I’m using Folk Art Home Decor Wood Tint.

Once you have the entire thing covered in stain, use a paper towel or cloth to wipe up the excess.

Let it dry completely. I am obsessed with the richness of the wood tint – so beautiful.  I really love how easy this process is and how it turned out.
