I have a trick for you to make custom stencils, any size, shape, and inexpensively.
I don't have time to run to the craft store or wait for an order to come in the mail and because I
work on larger projects I like to be able to make my own stencils to fit the right size of my projects.
** I print out a simple graphic on regular paper the size I need.
** Then I cover the front and back of the paper with strips of clear packing tape.
(This makes my stencil thicker and water/paint proof.)
**The final step is to cut my stencil out with a shape knife and get to work.
YES IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!
I recently used these fancy Fleur de lis stencils to finish off a sheet music dresser I did.
This dresser has already been snatched up but I do have some beautiful turquoise
mirrors to show you that are now listed on the MIRRORS page and available to purchase.
Also be sure to stop in to see what's new in shabby chic white hardware available at firstfinds.
George's Etsy shop is filled with all sorts of vintage hardware.
He has over 1000 pieces of used hardware to choose from
