Stenciled Easter Egg Pickup Truck Sign

April 10, 2019
I purchased a set of four paper stencils from Joann Fabrics Online about a month ago.  

I think I paid $8.99 plus shipping.

Here are the other three stencils in the package:
Stencil 2.

Stencil 3.

Stencil 4.  

I see that this stencil set is no longer available online. 

This is a similar set still available at Joann Fabrics Online, but no truck stencil...

To begin my Easter project, I base coated a birch plywood board with two coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth.

I centered the stencil, and taped it on my base coated board with blue painter's tape.

I stenciled the truck with Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in CAVIAR.  

The Easter eggs were stenciled with Ceramcoat Select Multi-Surface Paint in Cotton Candy, Ceramcoat Select in GP Purple, and Ceramcoat Select in Seafoam.

At first I stenciled the center egg with pale yellow. But I though it was too light, and sanded it off, touched it up and re-stenciled it.

When I was done stenciling, I waxed the sign with Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in Clear.

Since my board was square, and my stencil was rectangular, I moved the lettering up a little on Hippity Hoppity, and down a little on Happy Easter

 The frame is made from 1" x 2"s.  The top and bottom boards are cut 2" longer than the side boards, and the boards are nailed to the plywood and ends of the frame.

I stained the boards with Varathane Wood Stain in Dark Walnut.

I am going to give my sign to my daughter for her townhouse.
