Are you a flea market shopper? Oh, good, me too. That’s why I am able to share this DIY Christmas vintage cutting boards vignette with you.
Vintage cutting boards are a popular item for our kitchen decor. This is the perfect time to use them as part of a Christmas vintage cutting board vignette. A DIY Christmas vintage cutting board can be used in so many ways in your Christmas decor.
Planning and creating for the Christmas holiday seems to be happening earlier than usual this year. Is everyone just so excited about celebrating Christmas this year? Are you ready to put on your Christmas DIY hat? Let’s play elf and get sharted.
This project is number three in this week’s Christmas in July. Decorating these vintage cutting boards for Christmas way ahead of time helps you prepare for Christmas decorations. Start early and you’ll be ready when it’s time to decorate your home.
Today is also Creative Craft Blog Hop Week, hosted by Sara of Birdz of a Feather. I’m not the only one sharing a Christmas idea. If you are joining me from Gail of Purple Hues and Me, she is also sharing a holiday theme craft, DIY Glittery Holiday Floral Stem.
There are other bloggers sharing crafty ideas today.
I’ll take you through the process of making these Christmas vintage cutting boards.

I found these vintage cutting boards a few years ago in Atlanta. Since I never intended to use these cutting boards for food, they are great for kitchen and seasonal decor.
I first used them as decor a couple of years ago for Valentine’s Day.
Now is a great time to decorate your vintage cutting boards with a Christmas theme.
SUPPLIES FOR THE VINTAGE CUTTING BOARD PROJECT
Just a few supplies will get you started on this DIY Christmas cutting board project.
- your vintage cutting boards
- Christmas stencils of your choice: I used some of the Christmas stencils from A Makers’ Studio. These stencils are a year old, but some are still available. I promise that there will be many new ones coming out in the next few months.
- ChalkArt from A Makers’ Studio. I used 4 colors: Preaching to the Choir (black), Peace and Joy (white), Together Forever (green). For red, I used a brand new color, a bright Christmas red ~ Love Bug.
- plastic scraper
- painter’s tape (optional)
HOW TO DECORATE A VINTAGE BOARD WITH A SANTA
Step 1 ~ Choose your stencils and your ChalkArt colors
Step 2 ~ Place your first stencil on your cutting board.
TIP: If you are using multiple colors, use painter’s tape to cover the area around the design.
For this cutting board stencil, I was using red and green ChalkArt. Apply the ChalkArt with your plastic scraper.
For the Santa stencil, I used black for Santa’s boots.
I painted the rest of Santa in red.
That’s how easy my first Christmas vintage cutting board was.
Let your stencil dry for about 15 minutes. When your stencil is dry, you can rub your hand across it.
NOTE: Remember that you can remove the stencil by washing off the ChalkArt with soap and water. For a wood cutting board, you will have to rub it hard with a damp paper towel.

MERRY AND BRIGHT CHRISTMAS VINTAGE BOARD
For my other vintage cutting boards, I used another Christmas stencil. Follow the same procedure as above.
I used green and red ChalkArt with just a little bit of white.
DISPLAY YOUR VINTAGE CHRISTMAS CUTTING BOARDS
Now you can use your cutting boards in a Christmas vignette.
First, I made a Christmas bow around the handle of one cutting board. For the first vignette, I used:
- one of my apothecary jars filled with faux snow and red Christmas ornaments
- some new bottle brush Christmas trees
For another vignette, I used a cake stand for height and added red beads. I used the smaller cutting board to hold red jingle bells.
Wasn’t that an easy way to use vintage cutting boards as Christmas decorations? Style the cutting boards any way you like. The stencil designs are what make them special.
I hope you like these simple DIY Christmas crafts for your next vignette. Keep your eyes open for vintage cutting boards at flea markets, antique malls, and estate sales. Get a few to have ready when you are ready to make a Christmas craft.
