It is easy to make your own hand painted Farm Fresh Christmas Trees Sign. The sign is painted using chalk mineral paint and a stencil.
Remember the winter doormat that I made with The Belles and Whistles Holiday Joy mylar stencil by Dixie Belle Paint Company? You can read about it here.
Well, I decided to make a Festive Farm Fresh Christmas Trees Sign with one of the other stencils. You may recall that The Belles and Whistles Holiday Joy mylar stencil came with four (4) beautiful stencils.

Farm Fresh Christmas Trees Sign tutorial
1. Paint the front of the wood disc
The 14″ wood discs are raw thin wood. I gave my disc two coats of Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint in Whitecap by Dixie Belle. It gave me a good protective base with the built-in primer, paint and top coat.
You will need to allow your paint to dry in between coats. Since the discs are raw, it soaks up the paint and dries quickly. You will be able to do a second coat within 30 minutes.
2. stencil the Farm Fresh Christmas Trees Sign
Can I say how much I love this part of the project? I love to stencil. It is so much fun and simple to do.
I took the stencil outside to spray the back with Krylon Easy-Tack Repositionable Spray Adhesive. It is perfect to use on the back of stencils. It keeps the stencil from moving on you yet it is removable.
Unlike the doormat project, less is more when stenciling. You will load a little paint on to you brush. With a circular motion work the paint into the cut out area until you can completely filled in the stencil.
Allow the paint to dry a couple of minutes before lifting off the stencil. You need to make sure your hands are clean and free from paint. You don’t want to accidently mark up your beautifully painted sign.
3. drill Two holes for hanging
After you sign has completed dried it is time to drill a couple of holes into the top. We do this in order to be able to hang the sign. You could do this step before paint the wooden disc.
On the front, I marked where the holes would be placed. With my Ryobi drill and 9/64″ drill bit, two holes were added to the top. Over the holes, I did use a piece of sand paper to remove any debris. It was a very light touch with not damage to the disc.
4. add twine for hanging the Farm Fresh Christmas Trees Sign
You can cut a piece of jute twine to the desire length. Fish it through the hole and knot tie it on each end of the twine. Now you have a loop for hanging.
5. Embellish your sign
Two holiday floral picks and one pinecone pick were cut a part to use for embellishments.
Carefully, hot glue the faux pines in place. Next, make a bow and place it in the center. The final touches were hot gluing some pinecones and red berries to the faux pine.
A fun hanging sign that is different from a traditional wreath. You can use it on an entry bench like displayed here. It can be hung on a wall or door.
How about hanging it inside a vintage inspired Tobacco Basket to give it that farmhouse style? I am using it as part of my front porch holiday decorations.
Hope you give this project a try! Let me know what you think in the comments.
