2 Easy Projects: Kitchen Wall Art + Wall Hooks

It’s the weekend, and I always like to work on really easy projects that can be squeezed in between our weekend activities, so I have two easy projects for you that can both be made in under an hour!

2 Easy Projects: Kitchen Wall Art + Wall Hooks

Two easy farmhouse decor projects you can make i a weekend! - KnickofTime.net

Both of these projects were made with new Mason Jar Stencil

First up is easy kitchen wall art on a cutting board.

It takes about 5 minutes to make and the only supplies you’ll need are:

  • a cutting board
  • a stencil brush
  • black paint
  • wood stain (if desired)

The cutting board I used is a vintage one, so I sanded it smooth on one side before stenciling.

The stencil has “connector lines” across the lid.  You can either snip them off (which is what I did), or just paint over the lines once you finish stenciling, or you can just leave them there – either way, it’ll look great!

I went a little nuts taking photos of the cutting board when I was done, but I really loved how it turned out and couldn’t help myself.

The second project is making kitchen wall hooks using the same stencil.

You’ll need the same supplies that you used for the cutting board wall art, but you’ll also need a few hooks and a piece of unfinished pine wood.


  • Determine how many hooks you want, and cut the pine board wide enough for them, with space between.

You can use any kind of hooks.  I had cup hooks on hand, so I used those.

  • Tape the stencil in place.  Since two different text options are availableon the stencil, mask off the one you don’t want to use.  I chose the smaller text under the jar, so I masked off the text on the side (which can be rotated, if you want to use larger text instead).

  • Remember to have VERY little paint on your brush to prevent bleeding under the stencil.

I always put paint on my brush, then wipe most of it off on a paper towel before starting to lightly “pounce” the brush over the stencil.

I didn’t cut off the connector lines before stenciling for this project.

  • Once the paint is dry, stain the wood.

  • Screw hooks and attach hangers to the back.

And it’s done!

These wall hooks take about 20 minutes from start to finish, so they are super easy to make also.

    Love it! Copying!!! You are so creative! One of my favorite collection items is the cutting board!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love your stenciling idea, it looks great on both the cutting board and the regular board. It definitely has that farmhouse look, especially with the towels hanging from it.

  3. That turned out so pretty, Angie…the cutting board would be great with hooks on it, too!
