15 Minute Stencil with a Pencil Upcycle

Hi there, Friends! It's been awhile since I've posted a 15 minute fix so today I'm sharing a quick stencil project you can whip up in a jiffy...

For my upcycle, I'm using a thrifted crate arrangement that I picked up prior to the pandemic. Remember those days?!

Previously, I've shared "stencil with a pencil" projects using a white art pencil on chalkboards, but did you know they work nicely on unpainted wood, too? You can try the same technique on any wood that doesn't have a painted or varnished finish.

I changed the words from Flower Market to Farmer's Market by moving the stencil around a bit. You can find white art pencils at Hobby Lobby or purchase them online, here.
