Recycle & Stencil

I love to recycle things. I knew that my leftover reclaimed wood planks would come in handy someday. So when it was my turn to lead the Winter Challenge I picked a Stencil project for them. The planks are in all different sizes so finding the right size was a challenge. I decided to go with the plank that was the tallest so I can hang it on a narrow part of a wall. I found a pretty Moroccan style stencil and stenciled it at 5 different locations on the wood plank each measured evenly. Its was very easy and the only tricky part is making sure to dab the paint on lightly. See Tutorial below!



 Supplies & Tutorial

  • Wood
  • Paint
  • Brush
  • Stencil

Clean surface of wood. Tape the stencil on the wood. Dab the paint very lightly on the stencil. If you use too much paint it will bleed. Repeat the same process  and place the stencil 3 inches a part or whatever distance you like. Make sure the measurements are equal so the stencil design look evenly.
