How-to Project: Create Photo Frames with Stencils
Katie’s Nesting Spot
Katie, from the blog Katie’s Nesting Spot, made this beautiful, large frame out of layered canvas! The supplies she used to create this stenciled decorating idea were: 12×12 blank wrapped canvas, acrylic paint, stencil brush, and Cutting Edge Stencils’ Small Nagoya Allover Stencil!
After the base coat of green acrylic paint dried, Katie used adhesive spray to stick the stencil to the canvas. She used her stencil brush and the stippling technique to paint the Nagoya Allover Stencil with blue acrylic paint. Once the stenciling was finished and dry, Katie attached a mounted photo of her child that she made at a photo lab! The results of this stencil project are so sweet!
Shanty 2 Chic
Ashley, from the blog Shanty 2 Chic, also stenciled these darling frames for her house and home! What she used: plywood boards, spray and acrylic paint, stencil brush, cheap 5×7 frames, and Cutting Edge Stencils’ Turkish Tulip Stencil!
Ashley used Rust-Oleum Heirloom White spray paint for the base coat of the plywood, and stenciled the Turkish Tulip stencil pattern with the dry-brush method using Slate Grey by Americana acrylic paint. Ashley then ripped off the stands of the frames and made holes in their cardboard backings. She put a nail in the center of each plywood and hung the frames on the nails. This way the photos are interchangeable! Brilliant!
