cutting at an angle against the ceiling


looking for tips or tricks to finish this up.

i'm putting cedar fence pickets that have been cut and stained on the wall.
the first picture shows what i did on the first inset. the second shows what i'm dealing with. this inset has the angled ceiling. is there an easy way to mark the angle correctly for the boards that will butt up against the ceiling?
any help would be great appreciated, i'm a little stumped.
thanks a ton in advance,
jon

I'd be painting the wall behind where it's going a dark or matching color so it will not show through the gaps.
I would think you would want to add straping horizontal so you would have something to nail to. Just trying to stick them to drywalls not going to work out.

Go to any big box store and buy an angle finder.
