Today I am sharing a how to make Reusable Freezer Paper Stencils on Silhouette School and to show you how to use these inexpensive stencils I have made fun Spring Welcome sign to share will all of you!
- Wood Slats 1″ x .5″
- Reusable Freezer Paper Stencil
- Loctite Power Grab Construction Adhesive
- White Acrylic Paint
- Stencil Brush
- Felt Tulips
- Sand Paper
- Wood Stain
To start my Spring Welcome Sign I grabbed a bunch of wood slats from my scrap wood stash they were all approximately 1″ x 0.5″.
Since I knew I wanted my sign to have a rustic feel I didn’t even bother to trim them down or make them a uniform size. I laid them out so each slat jigged back and forth on either side.
To secure them all in place I used a couple of smaller pieces and some Loctite Power Grab Construction Adhesive.
I smeared a good amount all over the back of the wood from end to end so it would grab onto each slat.
And then I pressed each slat onto the others moving in the opposite direction.
Next I removed the stickers from the wood and gave it a light sanding with 220 grit sand paper. Being careful to sand the places were the stickers were more thoroughly then the rest. The reason why I sanded this section more is because the residue from the stickers can block the stain from adhering to the wood.
Next I stained the wood with a 50/50 mix of Weathered Oak and Special Walnut Then sealed it with a fast coat of Verathane.
Next I applied and painted my design using a Reusable Freezer Paper Stencil and these directions.
While my paint was drying I made a few Felt Tulips. To see the full tutorial and get the pdf pattern click here. (Full Tutorial coming tomorrow 3/17).
