I think I found The Mad Stencilist when I first started my painting gig 11 years ago and I have used them EVER SINCE!!!!
So I just stuck the stencil down the best I could and I stenciled it LIGHTLY where it didn’t lay down flat.
Suggestions for this post were taken from this thread on the Craftaholics Anonymous Facebook Page. When tracing onto light coloured wood, I generally use on tracing paper, and erase any visible lines afterwards. I always forget to buy carbon paper, and I don’t have any fancy machinery to print the letters out except for a black laser printer.
I have done several ways that have been listed here, and to add on, microsft publisher has a banner section where you can put in the size of your wood , like your making a banner and print it out exactly like you want, you can even get the font you like best that way.
There is a huge market for finding the wood, buying the wood, selling the wood and for turning the wood into something beautiful!!!!


Good that you found a place to get yours since you don’t like all that task work at the front of the project. You can use carbon paper and trace letters you’ve printed onto the wood and then trace it with a wood burning tool. You need a sealer over the wood or the paint will bleed if you’re going to leave the wood natural.
Just print your saying on paper, tape it to the X-ray and use an exact knife to neatly cut out the letters. I also find that rubbing chalk (white or coloured) works the same way – good for dark wood or lighter coloured font paint.
So I take chalk (so far my backgrounds haven’t been white, but I guess I could use colored chalk for white backgrounds), and cover the back of the printed letters on the paper with the chalk. I remember reading somewhere about using a credit card to get your letters pressed down really good to the wood, then use Mod Podge on the edge of the letters and wood to get very clean lines.


Jennifer purchased her first home at the age of 21 and had to find ways to make it beautiful on a slim budget.  So, she began faux finishing her own home in the 1990’s and went to her first faux finishing school in the year 2000. I’ve always loved bold painted ones with beveling around the letters with gold or other color.
Any how once the wording is in place I painted the sign a matte black, over the letters as well.
