Buffalo Check Christmas Countdown Goodwill Ornament Makeover

 I purchased this large Christmas Countdown Ornament Sign at a Goodwill in the Twin Cities.

Other thrifted items found in November were shared in a post Here.

The sign had a Kirkland's sticker on the back.  It was a cute sign, but I really didn't want another Christmas Countdown Sign.

I removed the round chalkboard circle and the corrugated metal on the sign top.

 I then painted the round ornament top with Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in CAVIAR and a sponge brush.

Next, I pulled out my favorite *Old Sign Stencil, Medium Buffalo Checks.

The past two Christmases, I created a whole Buffalo Check Christmas with this stencil!

I laid the stencil on the diagonal.  The ornament was just a bit too wide, so I had to move the stencil up, down, right and left to finish off the stencil pattern.  

I chose Fusion Mineral Paint in Fort York Red for the checks. 

I have become very good at this!  Just be very careful to line the stencil up perfectly each time you have to move it over.


If you remember, I stenciled the lettering only on a galvanized bucket Here.

I stenciled the reindeer design using Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain.

This stencil fit the ornament perfectly!


All prices on the Old Sign Stencils's website are listed in Canadian currency.  A handy currency conversion link is provided for your convenience.

*Old Sign Stencils provided me with complimentary samples. All opinions about these fabulous stencils are my own.

I painted the green corrugated ornament top with Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Hurricane Gray.

The last step was to wax the sign with Dixie Belle Big Mama's Butta.
