Awesome and Easy Stenciled Gifts!

Jun 15, 2016
 

It's wedding season and gifts can be costly. So why not make use of the stencils you have or purchase a new one and try some fun new projects so you can make a gift whenever you need one. Your project might even take off as a new business!


Here's an idea my niece Maya and I came up with. 

Find a flat, wood surface that can be repainted. We purchased ours for $10 at Michael's craft store. 

 

 our wood piece

Apply an acrylic paint to the surface. We chose Golden's Indian Yellow Hue. 

 

Apply spray adhesive to the back of the stencil. (Review our "how to apply spray adhesive" blog for more information.) 

 

This setncil is one from Mama Natalie 4 pack from Wallovers. It is so versatile. It can be used for small projects like this craft or repeated for larger projects.  There's another one in the four pack that was used to make this window shade!

All profits from Mama Natalie stencil sales go back to Rwanda to help Mama Natalie support her family through helping her batik business.  So when you purchase the stencil, you not only have four great patterns to play with, you are helping an entire family. 

 

 

Ok back to the project.

 

Here Maya chose to paint her wood using two colors. Placing the stencil in the direction that will show mosyt of the pattern and using two separate brushes ( Wallovers' Allover Brush and The Edger Brush). She stenciled the pattern onto the wood using Golden's Ultramarine Blue and Quiacridone Magenta. 

Since the stencil is partly a negative weed, once it is complete, the third color, Indian Yellow Hue, will appear as the pattern from the base already painted.

 

Once the design is complete you can either apply a clear coat top, (we used Modern Masters Masterclear supreme Matte).

Or...you can pour an epoxy coating for more versatile serving use. We will show you that process in a future blog so stay tuned. And have fun making some gifts this summer!
