Stencils are a great and easy way to add some art to a room. I have a spot in my living room where I enjoy swapping out the artwork. This past weekend I had a craft day with Sarah and I made a fun canvas to hang in the living room featuring lace birds.
Bird Stenciled Canvas
- Sweet Tweets Lace Bird Sets A & B
- 16×20 Canvas
- Aqua Spray Paint
- Acrylic Paint
- Foam Brush
- Repositionable Spray Adhesive
- Black Sharpie
I started by spray painting the canvas. I used spray paint because I wanted the uneven look so that it looked like the sky with some wispy clouds.
Once the canvas was dry, I picked out a few birds from the Sweet Tweets Lace Bird Sets A & B. These birds are so fun and youthful.
Position the birds on the canvas and then use the foam brush to paint the birds onto the canvas. I realized after I finished that I should have used some repositionable spray adhesive to get a better seal on the lines and use less paint in those areas.
Once the paint of the birds dry, use a ruler and sharpie to add the telephone wires.
I had a few imperfections in the lace area of the birds, but I can’t wait to practice and make some more projects with these awesome stencils.
The Royal Design Studio Stencils were a nice thick quality that could definitely be used over and over again. They have lots of stencils available – from small ones like this for craft projects to large stencils for all-over wall coverage.
