Use Mini Craft Stencil Patterns To Enhance A DIY Wooden Jewelry Box
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends. Sometimes accessories are too cute to shove into an old box. We want you to consider giving your jewelry box a dose of personality and pattern using our stencil designs. Come see a stencil project that is as adorable as it is easy!
Each week we’ve been sharing fun and easy stencil tutorials on our Facebook page. Make sure you like the page so you don’t miss out on these inspiring projects. This week we shared how to enhance a wooden jewelry box purchased at Michaels for $5.99 using the Nagoya Card Stencil Template. For those who love tutorials, you will love this instructional video.
Let’s walk through the steps for completing this adorable project. First we rounded up the supplies needed which included a small wooden jewelry box from Michaels ($5.99), a two inch dense foam roller, a stencil brush, blue painter’s tape, Martha Stewart craft paint in Rose Gold, Blush Pink and White, and our Nagoya Card Stencil.
The first thing we did was paint the exterior of the box. We painted the top in white and the bottom in pink. With the painted box and all of our materials on hand, we were ready to start stenciling. We sprayed the stencil with repositionable spray adhesive. When the adhesive felt slightly tacky but not overly wet (about 5 minutes after spraying) we then placed it on top of the box.
When we were comfortable with the placement of the stencil, we patted it down. The adhesive helped hold it in place.
We used a two inch dense foam roller to paint the pattern in Martha Stewart Rose Gold. The excess paint was rolled off onto a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed.
After the pattern was painted, we lifted the stencil to reveal the geometric design.
To complete the top of the box, we repositioned the stencil and continued painting the pattern.
We wanted to continue the pattern along the lid, so we turned the box on its side. Then we placed blue painter’s tape along the pink ridge. The stencil was positioned on the white lid and a stencil brush was used to paint the pattern in rose gold. We dipped the brush into the paint and then brushed off any excess on a piece of paper towel.
When the stenciled jewelry box was done, we stepped back to admire the beautiful Nagoya Stencil Pattern. We are about to flood you with some beautiful eye-candy!
We love the sassy style that this geometric pattern gives this DIY wooden jewelry box.
