I purchased this cutesy country snowman wall decor recently at a garage sale for 75 cents!  The inserts are glass.

I gave it a garden themed makeover.

I wiped it off with a damp rag, and brushed on a couple of coats of Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Drop Cloth.

Now to add the garden theme!

I pulled out a brand new stencil from Old Sign Stencils, Garden Labels.  This stencil is perfect for plant labels, but I used it on my garage sale piece. It's pretty versatile.

I cut my stencils apart so the rows were easier to work with and line up.

I found that I could add four herb stencils to each glass area.

I pounced on each word using Dixie Belle Chalk Finish Paint in Caviar.

I sealed the paint and stenciling with Dixie Belle Paint Easy Peasy Spray Wax Easy Peasy application, spray on and wipe with a soft cloth.

The sign already had a sawtooth hanger on the back.
