Buffalo Checked Bison Sign

Oh, how I love this buffalo check stencil from Funky Junk Interiors' Old Sign Stencils. It is perfect for adding a rustic, cabin vibe to anything.

I decided I definitely needed to make a buffalo checked bison (or buffalo, although in North America they are bison).

I made the sign background with reclaimed barnwood boards. I then used a bison stencil that I made a few years ago.  I made the stencil by looking at a bison outline and then drawing it out on a piece of poster board. I cover the poster board in contact paper and then use small, detailed scissors to cut it out.

After painting the bison and letting it dry, I lay the buffalo check stencil over the bison stencil and paint it with black paint. I also stenciled Montana on the bottom.

I have some buffalo check bears and moose in the works as well. I love the rustic look and will be making some of these buffalo checked signs for Christmas.

(I was given free stencils, but the opinions expressed are solely my own.)
