Wooden Snowflake Art

Hey friends!

I have an easy little 

January Art Project

for you.



Pin It!



You know I've used this basic shape

in other art projects.



Just some cedar fence boards with lath connectors.

The boards are 11" long.

The entire piece is painted with a brown wash.

You could stain it too.

Tape off the edges of the front.




Using cardstock, dip in black and raw sienna

and drag across surface.




Remove tape.

Use cardstock

to drag white and camel paint on the edges.




I made a stencil by printing my design on cardstock,

covering with packaging tape on both sides,

and cutting out design.

Be sure to leave connectors within the design.






After brushing in the white,

remove stencil and

use a small flat brush to detail the snowflake.

Paint completely white and add a shade of camel.

Use a black liner brush to clean up any edges.

Hang with D rings and ribbon

or put a hanger on back.

So many options.

Think of your fun color options too.



Pin It!


Love this gray one that my daughter in law painted!
















Pin It!



You can even hang your snowflake

on your front door.

 - A winter icon -

Happy painting!
