DIY Christmas Tree Farm Canvas Sign & Chalk Couture Giveaway Winner

DIY Christmas Tree Farm Christmas Sign

I wanted to squeak in a Christmas in July post before July was over, but I had some trouble with the project.

So instead of a Christmas in July project, this will have to be a Christmas in August project. 

Oh well.  What’s one day?

Chalk Couture Christmas Tree Farm Transfer Canvas Christmas Sign by Knick of Time | knickoftime.net

I received some new Chalk Couture transfers and just had to play around with some of the Christmas ones I ordered.  I had the perfect canvas to make one on.   

Let me back up by saying I received some photo canvases that I ordered last month of my two sons’ weddings last year, and one of them was a bit pixelated, so I couldn’t use it.  The company was wonderful and immediately shipped out a better one.

I didn’t want to waste the pixelated one, so I painted the surface with chalkboard paint so it was ready to turn into a fun Christmas sign.

I chose the Christmas Tree Farm transfer for the painted canvas.  It is seriously the most wonderful design for a Christmas sign.

Placing the carrier sheet underneath the edge of the transfer keeps the edges from adhering to the surface, making it easier to remove once you finish applying the chalk paste.

I got out Evergreen, White, and Red Chalkology Pastes, two small squeegees, the angled squeegee, and multi-Tool.

I use the multi-tool to stir the pastes and apply it to small areas.  I use the angled squeegee for larger areas, like the trees, and the small squeegees for anything in between.

I didn’t take a photo of applying the paste because you have to work fast so it doesn’t dry on the transfer.

Once I finished applying the chalk paste, I removed the transfer.  I realized that I hadn’t squeegeed off the paste good enough because there were lines showing from the edge of the squeegee.

Fortunately, chalk paste is easy to remove with water so I used a damp rag and wiped the paste off the tree area.

I cleaned the transfer and allowed the chalk paste to dry before repositioning it back on the canvas.

This time it was a success!

My DIY Farmhouse plates got temporarily displaced to take these photos under my Farmers Market Chalkboard.

I’m so in love with this transfer design and can’t wait until Christmastime!

It’s available for purchase in my Etsy shop HERE.
