Teagan's room needed art. And I wanted simple and stuff that would accent well with what we have going on up there! I didn't want to buy stuff. I wanted to MAKE STUFF! I've tried to make almost everything as far as "decor" for the kids rooms. So this was the most recent project and I absolutely love love love how it turned out.
Canvas (whatever size you would like. These are 16x24 from Hobby Lobby as a set for $7.99)
Glitter - optional
What to do:
Lay out a trash bag over painting surface. Because let's face it... we all make a mess.
Paint your canvas a solid color of your choosing. I chose to do the lighter color as the canvas color and the darker color for the stencil.
Apply two coats and allow to dry in between for a more even color.
I would allow the canvas to dry 2 hours or so before starting in on the stencil.
With the spray adhesive, spray the back of the stencil and apply it to the canvas and rub all around the cut out areas so it's secured to the canvas and no paint can get underneath resulting in a "not so pretty stencil".
Once stencil is applied take the stencil sponge and lightly sponge over the stencil. You won't need more than one coat if doing a darker color on top. If you are using a light color for the stencil you may want two coats.
After the stencil is painted over, peel from the bottom of the stencil and pull upwards... slowly! You don't want to smudge anything.
After the stencil is removed, and if you are using glitter... sprinkle glitter over the wet stenciled area. Take it outside and blow off remaining glitter.
Easy, easy, easy! And so cute! I was very pleased with Teagan's chandelier canvases!
