Noel Christmas Shutter

Christmas crafting began before Halloween this year and this is one of those projects that got done before Halloween. All summer I was on the look out for old shutters or closet bi-fold doors that looked like shutters. Every garage sale I would look and finally it happened I found 4 of them (that I am hoarding out in my garage) Then my Friend got two more from her mother in law. Suddenly we were in Shutter heaven. 6 shutters for only $5 total. I originally had bought them for a fourth of July Idea I had but didn’t find them in time! So luckily I have four more shutters for the Fourth of July.

Then I stumbled across this Noel idea on PB&J Stories I love her boards but didn’t want to spend the money on wood and had oodles of shutters to work with so off we went!

Here are what the shutters looked like before:

We then painted them white and once they were dry we added the Noel stencil (which was all cut on the Cricut) Our stencils normally only last one time.

Once we had the template all in line and centered where we wanted it we began to paint with red! Now this same red paint is leftover paint from my red swing so we didn’t have to go out and buy anything!!! Reuse / Recycle!!

Not sure why half of my pictures turned out blurry but I was to lazy to go take more! 😉 Happy Holidays! Can’t wait to show you all the fun things we are working on!

    I love this Idea! I don’t have any material yet so they will prob have to wait till next year 😉 will be watching for them and other materials next summer as I go yard-saleing and keeping an eye out throughout the winter at estate sales 🙂

    Did you use spray paint after your stencil was on? Or what was your painting technique? I want to do a stencil design on shutters, but am not sure how to proceed. Thanks for any suggestions!

      We hand painted them with a brush before and after the stencils were on. The slats over lap, it was easier to run a brush along each slat to get the paint coverage we wanted with out applying several coats.
