Hi everyone! It’s Tammy from Rustic Orchard Home! Let’s make some stenciled wooden Christmas trees using the new Dixie Belle Paint stencils! Allow me to show you exactly what I did when creating my set of trees.
- Wooden Christmas Tree Cutouts
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint
- Steel Magnolia Moonshine Metallics
- Houndstooth Stencil
- Royal Damask Stencil
- Morocco Stencil
- Walnut No Pain Gel Stain
- Makeup Sponges
- Paint Brush
First, I started this project with a set of wooden Christmas tree cutouts. Begin by applying a base coat of No Pain Gel Stain in the color Walnut to all three trees. I apply my stain with a clean cloth. Just be sure to wear gloves so you don’t stain your hands. Let the stain dry before moving onto the next part of the project.
The first stencil I used was the Morocco Stencil. To begin stenciling, you’ll want to place your stencil on your surface. Then use a makeup sponge to apply thin even layers of paint to the surface. It may take a few coats of paint to get your desired coverage. I used Moonshine Metallics in Steel Magnolia by Dixie Belle Paint.
Once you’ve achieved your desired paint coverage, remove the stencil to reveal your finished product.
Next, I used the Royal Damask Stencil. To create this look, I first applied a coat of Fluff to the entire surface. Then I used the same makeup sponge technique to add my stencil details using Moonshine Metallics in the color Steel Magnolia.
