Make A DIY Stencil


I’ve had this cute little wooden box in my craft room forever, waiting for me to figure out just the right purpose for it.

I decided the other day to make it into an easy last minute Christmas gift, by using a hand drawn stencil and some painters tape. You can easily download an image you like and cut it out. I decided to try and just draw an image myself.

If you have one of those lonely unused craft items just sitting around, why not turn it into a cute gift for someone? It’s easy!

I had some gold paint laying around and used a cotton ball to apply the paint over the homemade stencil.   The cotton ball gave the paint a little texture. I used painters tape to secure the stencil.

I applied painters tape to the base of the box at an angle and painted on the gold paint to give a gold dipped look.

I decorated the inside with a piece of removable wrapping paper and all done! And there you are, an easy upcycled Christmas gift.
