Section 1 – Turn A Boring Dollar Tree Sign Into An Ombre Wall Art
Creating an ombre wall art piece for your nursery room is a wonderful way to add a touch of beauty and serenity to the space. The gradual blending of colors creates a mesmerizing effect that will captivate both you and your little one. I’ll walk you through the steps of creating an ombre wall art piece that will be the perfect addition to your girls nursery decor. Let’s get started!
Dollar Tree Ombre Sign Materials You’ll Need
- Dollar Tree
- Dollar Tree Sign
- 3 Paintbrushes
- Paper towels to clean up the mess.
- Sherwin Williams
- Paints in your desired colors (preferably 3-5 shades of the same color family) You can use any paint you would like such as acrylic, chalk paint, watered-down chalk paste, etc.
- Chalk Couture
- Surface Wax & Applicator
- Water Bottle – This is the secret. It’s a fine mist water bottle giving the perfect amount of water to evenly spread the paint without overdoing it.
Step-by-Step Instructions To Paint Ombre Wall Art
Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Find a clean and well-ventilated area to work in. Lay down a protective covering to prevent any accidental paint spills or splatters. Make sure you have all your materials within reach.
Step 2: Choose Your Ombre Colors For DIY Dollar Tree Craft
Select a color palette that complements the overall theme and color scheme of your nursery. For an ombre effect, choose 3-5 shades of the same color family, ranging from light to dark. This will create a seamless gradient from top to bottom.
Step 3: Prepare Your Dollar Tree Sign
If you’re using a Dollar Tree sign, ensure it’s clean and free from any dust, debris or glitter. If you prefer a wooden board, make sure it’s sanded and smooth. You can also paint the board in a neutral color as a base if desired.
Pro Tip: For Dollar Tree signs that have glitter simply spray it with a fine mist of water and scrape off the glitter. Time Saver!!
Step 4: Start Painting Using the Ombre Painting Technique
Begin at the top of your boho sign. Using a wide paintbrush, apply the lightest shade of paint in broad horizontal strokes. Work your way down, gradually switching to the next darker shade as you move towards the bottom working in sections. Once the base colors are dry, paint one row of 2 touching colors and mist with water. Now blend those two colors together and repeat for each color.

Step 5: Let It Dry and Add Final Touches
Once dry, step back and assess the overall look of your ombre wall art. Add Chalk Couture surface wax to prep the surface for Chalk Couture stencil.

Ombre Painting Tips and Ideas
- Experiment with different color combinations to create unique ombre effects. You can try using warm or cool tones, pastel shades, or even bold and vibrant colors, depending on your nursery’s theme and your personal preference.
- Consider using a pencil to lightly sketch out the boundaries between each shade before painting. This can help you visualize the ombre effect and ensure a smooth transition between colors.
- If you’re unsure about blending the colors directly on the sign, you can practice on a separate piece of paper or a spare board to get a better sense of how the colors will blend together.
Creating an ombre wall art piece for your nursery is a rewarding and enjoyable DIY project that adds a beautiful and calming ambiance to the room. Now, let’s walk through step 2 to add the Chalk Couture stencil art kit.

Step-by-Step Instructions For DIY Dollar Tree Nursery Decor
Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace
Find a clean and well-lit area to work on your project. Lay down a protective covering to avoid any mess and make sure you have all your materials within reach.
Step 2: Choose Your Chalk Couture Stencil and Chalk Paste Color
Select a Chalk Couture stencil that fits the boho theme you envision for your baby’s room. There are various designs available, from intricate patterns to nature-inspired stencil art kits. Choose colors that complement your nursery room’s color palette. The one I used in the step-by-step video below is an exclusive design only available for the month of March for Chalk Couture club members.
Step 3: Position the Stencil on the Sign
Ensure the paint is dry and one coat of surface wax has been applied. Place the Dollar Tree sign on your workspace, fuzz the stencil with the fuzzing cloth, and position the Chalk Couture adhesive stencil on top of the sign.
Step 4: Apply Chalk Couture Paste To The Stencil
Using the Chalk Couture squeegee, pick up a small amount of paste and apply it over the stencil art kit design. Spread the paste evenly, making sure to cover all the openings in the stencil. I used Chalk Couture gold chalk paste on my DIY Dollar Tree craft project.
Step 5: Remove the Inspirational Quote Stencil
Carefully lift the stencil away from the sign while the chalk paste is still wet, ensuring not to smudge the applied design. Take your time during this step to maintain the crispness of the design. Admire the intricate details that the Chalk Couture stencil has created. Allow the Chalk Couture paste to dry completely.
Step 6: Hang and Enjoy
Once the chalk paste is dry, it’s time to hang your DIY boho wall art in your baby’s room. Choose a prominent spot where it will be the focal point of the space. Step back and admire your creativity as the room comes alive with the boho vibe.
