If you saw my post last week about the awesome Silhouette sale going on now, you saw a sneak peak of this little wood sign. If you have an electronic cutter, this is a quick and easy Christmas decor project. I am working on decorating the new shelves in my kitchen, and I needed something to fill the space in the middle. I came up with this Christmas tree wood sign. I found this wood board at my local thrift store, but you can use any board. I liked that this one had a routed edge, so that I could add a little more color to the edge. I painted it with white latex paint and red craft paint, because that’s what I had on hand. It already looks better, doesn’t it? I made up a design using the Silhouette Studio software. And just in case any of you are like me and like to copy projects exactly so you don’t have to think about it, I used a free font called “Cupid de Locke”. But you can use any font that you like! After I cut my vinyl, I adhered it to the board and started stenciling. Tip: Don’t remove the tiny vinyl hearts until after you have your green letters stenciled. Much easier that way! Here it is after I pulled the vinyl off. I decided to scuff mine up a little with my palm sander. And now it is sitting happily on my shelf, just waiting for other Christmas decor to join it! 🙂 Don’t have an electronic cutter? No worries. I’ve also made up a free printable that you can use instead! I played around with some different fonts, so you have two to choose from. This is the one I used for my stencil: Now that it’s all said and done, I’m kinda wishing I would have gone with this one. I think I would have liked the more bold letters. Who knows, I may end up re-painting it. I’m crazy like that! To access the free printable Christmas Tree Sign, just click the link below:
