Mrs. Claus Makes a Comeback!

I’m squeaking in at the last minute, but what’s July without at least one Christmas in July post, right? 🙂

Last year, I decided that  Mrs. Claus deserved a moment in the spotlight, since her hubby normally gets all the attention.  I made a sign in her honor and it was so well-liked that she now has her own Christmas stencil design as well.

I made 3 different project ideas using the stencil, but I’m sure you’ll think of more!  All of these projects are inexpensive and are easy enough for children to make!

Project #1 – there’s a new sign for her cookie company!

I used 2 new colors of chalk based paint from The Vintage Storehouse to make the sign.  I used”Red Bandana” to cover a new piece of pine board, and “Cotton” to paint the stenciled lettering.

Project #2 – Behind the scenes, she’s is getting ready to do some baking & this red burlap table runner looks so festive on her farmhouse table!

Mrs. Claus Burlap Table Runner available HERE.

To make it, I bought 1 yard of red burlap fabric and cut a piece from it measuring about 46″ x 13.

The easiest way to get a straight edge on burlap is to cut a few strings where you want your cutting line to be, then pull those strings out – instant straight line to cut on!

Use painter’s tape to secure the stencil on the burlap, and use a stencil brush to d paint over the stencil.

Make sure to place newspaper under the burlap, because the paint will bleed through the burlap and onto your work surface.

Project #3 – When Mr. Claus takes a break to eat his Christmas Eve snack, it’ll be waiting for him on a cute burlap place mat!

While I had the red and white paint out, I decided to whip up another sign – this time using the small Flour Sack stencil.

  1. Loved that sign you so graciously offered last Christmas. When we did our gift exchange at the preschool I work for I used it in a distressed white frame. It was beautiful ( and I love that it gives credit to the gal…because where would Santa be without his mrs.). Love the new stencil and everything you made with it❤️

    The red sign is really cute, Remember, “Behind every successful man is a ….woman.” Can’t remember it completely, but as Julie, above, says: “Where would Santa be without his Mrs.?” I could see the design stenciled on a piece of homespun-looking cotton for a Christmas table runner, too. I was imagining using it on my table this year. Guess I should order the stencil, huh? BTW, is there a recipe for the Mrs. Clause cookies?

    Oh, I forgot to ask you, Angie: where did you get those black brackets that hold the shelf above sign. I am coveting them!
