Materials List

  • FolkArt ® Home Decor™ Chalk - White Adirondack, 2 oz.
  • FolkArt ® Home Decor™ Chalk - Rich Black, 2 oz.

  • FolkArt ® Home Decor™ Tools - Layering Block
  • Medium-grit sandpaper


  1. Basecoat pallet with White Adirondack. Allow to dry.

  2. Very lightly stencil the words of the tree in Rich Black just so you will know where to paint the black rectangles. This is only a guide for placement.

  3. Tape off each word that you stenciled lightly and paint over Rich Black using the stencil brush. Allow it to dry and then stencil the words in White Adirondack. Allow to dry. Sand to distress. 

  4. Optional: Use the layering block to add extra distressed areas as shown in photo. Dip the block into the Rich Black and then dab onto a paper towel to remove excess. Run the block along the sides of the pallet and then very, very lightly along the slats.

My Christmas tree with all the ornaments that have been passed down over the years. It is lovely to think of the many fond memories of my family.

My Thomas Kinkade Santa figurines.

Would you have to do this kind of sign any differently if you wanted colors? I'd like to do something spring-inspired so I don't have to think about the snow!

I love the Christmas tree. I have many glass ornaments in different shapes and colors and a few pieces precede my birth date. It holds so many memories, especially of my parents and childhood.

My 18" tall purple tree with purple decorations... perched safely atop a bookcase to protect it from my young cat!!

My mom's Christmas tree, decorated with memories and handmade ornaments.

Love the country look of this!
