Why use sign stencils?

.

  • Mylar stencils LOVE reclaimed wood.

Raw wood doesn’t tend to like anything sticky. With a mylar stencil, you simply position and paint!

  • Our stencils are all about signs.

Christmas signs are BIG in decorating. Since our stencils are all ABOUT signs, they are already designed to offer that special festive bold punch using real sign maker fonts!

  • The design is already done. Just add paint!

Design work by hand takes HOURS to get it right. But with stencils, the design work is already complete. A stencil project can take as little time as just a few minutes!

Since Christmas is just around the corner, 7 NEW Christmas stencil designs were just released, so you can create all new Christmas ideas for signs, doormats, porch signs, cocoa bars, and more!

But also work equally well on trays, placemats, and even pillows!

Here’s a couple of creative and easy hot cocoa stations to make:

Patterns offer an instant cozy look and are easy to use!

Here’s a door mat I’ve done with some pattern ideas to try:

  1. I love, love, love everything in this post and especially the little white chippy paint trees. Before our old barn, chicken coop, and granary were bulldozed to make room for a new street, I saved a huge pile of the old wood. I had two rustic/vintage rummage sales in October and sold so many things I’m regretting, but still have crates of old rusty metal pieces so your posts, and especially this one, are an inspiration to use what I have. Thank you!
