DIY Christmas Sign and Chalky Finish Paint Giveaway

DIY Christmas Wood Sign Chalky Finish

Today I am sharing how to make this easy Christmas sign on birch wood with Chalky Finish Paint. Have you ever used this paint? It is amazing. I am hooked! It comes in so many gorgeous colors and is easy to use without having to sand and prime the surface.  That’s my kind of paint. You have a chance to win 8 colors of your choice and more, but we will get to that later!

I scored this birch wood plaque from Michaels.

The paint color I used is Relic. It is beautiful!

I used a foam brush to apply the paint.

Initially I planned to paint the letters on, but I decided to use chalk instead. Now I can change it with the seasons!

I used my Cricut make a stencil out of clear contact paper. I love to use contact paper for stencils because it is way cheaper than adhesive vinyl. You can download the image file here: Joy and Holly Berries. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can print and transfer the image using transfer paper like I showed you here: DIY Reclaimed Wood Sign.

Remember when we painted our kitchen cabinets? We used Everlasting Chalky Finish paint. It was a huge time saver to not have to sand/prime the cabinets and we are thrilled with them.

Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint is available in Michaels in the wood and finishes aisle. Visit the DecoArt Chalky Finish website for more chalk paint ideas and inspiration.
