Cutting Edge Stencils Shares An Easy Snowflake Stenciled Winter Craft
Happy Friday, my DIY crafters! Are you singing ‘let it snow, let it snow, let it snow?’ This past week, Cutting Edge Stencils certainly was, as pretty little snowflakes flurried down upon us! To be honest, that wasn’t quite the tune we were singing while we were cleaning off our cars, but we do enjoy how pretty they look when they first land. It’s always easier to enjoy the beauty of a snowfall when you’re sitting snuggled under a blanket, don’t you think? We thought so! Ok, so today we have an adorable snowflake stenciled craft that will allow you to enjoy these winter cuties from the comfort of your own couch.
We’d like to welcome back Ashley, the DIY superstar and blogger behind Domestic Imperfection. Now Ashley is no newbie when it comes to stenciling, in fact, we highlighted her stenciled hallway earlier this week. We told you she’s a stenciling rock star! She’s also on a stenciling roll because as soon as she finished her hallway project, she began whipping up a snowflake stenciled craft.
Here is the scoop on how to stencil a Snowflake Frame (this project comes from Domestic Imperfection):
First you’re gonna need this stuff listed below:
Rust-Oleum spray paint (silver and gold were used for this project)
A stencil (for this project the Snowflakes 3 pc Stencils Kit was used)
- Painter’s tape
- Rust-Oleum plain white spray paint
- Rust-Oleum frosted glass spray paint
- Rust-Oleum mirror effect
- Spray Adhesive
- Glass Cleaner (Fish Foam was used)
- paper towel
- scrap paper
**Please note we do not typically recommend using spray paint when stenciling on walls. There is a little more flexibility with this paint choice when working on a craft project.
1. Gather Materials: Start the stencil project by gathering all of the materials listed above.
2. Prep the Frames: Then remove the glass from the frames and spray paint the frames the desired color. For this project, Ashley painted the frames gold and silver.
3. Secure The Stencil: Clean the glass really well before you begin stenciling. Ashley used fish foam to clean the glass. Then position the stencil design on the glass and secure it in place using painter’s tape or spray adhesive. Ashley preferred using the spray adhesive for this project.
4. Start Stenciling: After you place the stencil on the glass, cover up any exposed glass with scrap paper. Now you’re ready to begin spraying! Paint the snowflake using the spray paint of your choice. In the image below, Ashely used the Rust-Oleum mirror effect spray paint.
5. Repeat the Snowflake Pattern: Reposition the stencil and continue painting the glass with the snowflake pattern until you are happy with the finish. Feel free to change the paint color of the snowflakes using the various Rust-Oleum paints. In the image below, you can see Ashley painted each snowflake differently using one of the three Rust-Oleum paints.
6. Reassemble the Frame: Once the snowflake design is dry, place the glass back into the frame. Now you’re ready to hang these snowflake cuties!
