Hi everyone! Normally on Tuesdays I post my vintage finds, but yesterday was so busy, I didn’t have time to prepare the post. So, as an alternative, I thought I’d share a new stenciled sign I made, using some of the awesome jute webbing I bought at a garage sale this fall. Of course it’s a Christmas sign.
It’s hanging on my Christmas gallery wall now.
It all started with this awesome jute webbing–72 yards of it(!). (Four yard pieces available in my shop.) So far I’ve only made one project with it–a Christmas “Cheers” bunting. The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea of stenciling something on it.
I found the stencil, along with several others, at the Homestead Stencil Co., an eBay store. This 4″ x 12″ stencil, just a $1.99, was the perfect size for this project. I thought the bumpy texture of the webbing might make it difficult to work with, but no, it worked like a dream, and I really like my new stencil.
While I had the jute and paint out, I decided to try out another new stencil. I’m extremely fond of this font, its simplicity and understated style.
I mounted the webbing onto a piece of scrap wood I had on hand. I painted it with white chalk paint first, but didn’t care for it as a back-drop, so I painted over it with black craft paint and then distressed it a little.
I think it adds a nice touch to this gallery wall. And that’s it, my final Christmas craft and my decorating is now done! Hope your holiday prep is going as planned. I’ll see you tomorrow.
