A couple weeks before Snap Conference in a chat room I met some great people that work with Royal Design Studio. I was so excited to find out they were going to Snap and I made it a point to meet with them and even took a class. The class was fantastic and I learned some great techniques. I knew from the beginning that I loved their products and I have several of their stencils now to play with.
Last week I was given the opportunity to share a craft on Mom It Forward. I was so excited for this opportunity and today I want to share the craft I made. I also have a great giveaway from Royal Design Studio that I will be posting later today - so come back and enter!
Can you believe Mother's Day is on Sunday? My Royal Design Studios stencils were perfect for what I wanted to make my Mom this year. I love to make handmade gifts for Mother's Day and so I made a few of these stenciled signs. I also made one to give a lady in my church as a Thank You - she loved it!
How to Make a Stenciled Wood Sign for your Home or Garden
- Scrap Wood – I used 2×2 wood scraps (7 boards are 15″ and 2 boards are 10″).
- 14 – 1 1/4″ screws – I predrilled the holes and then put the screws in to make sure the wood did not crack.
- White paint
- Royal Design Studio Stencil Large Japanese Flower Garden A
- Red and orange spray paint
- Vinyl that says “Bloom where you are planted”
- Scrap paper
Directions:Let’s get started!
Cut and sand your wood. Line up the 15-inch wood pieces as shown in the picture below. Screw in the two shorter pieces to add stability (this is the back of your sign).
I am so glad I had the opportunity to try out one of Royal Design Studios stencils. Royal Design did provide me with the stencil but all crafting and opinions are my own.
