DIY Antique Farmhouse Lemonade Tray

Welcome back stencilers! Today we will show you how to make this Lemonade Tray using a stencil from our Antique Farmhouse Collection.

For this project you will need:

  • “Ice Cold Lemonade” Sign Stencil, found here
  • Spray adhesive, found here
  • Stencil Paint Brush, found here
  • Acrylic Paint. We used Cadmium Yellow, Primary Yellow, Forest Green, white and Black, found here
  • Painters tape, found here

Let’s get started!

Like all of our crafts, start off by spraying the backside of your stencil with adhesive. Then press your stencil into the tray, once the adhesive has dried. Tape along the edges of your stencil then tape off any part that you don’t want to paint white.

Use the dry brush technique to paint the lemons and leaves with white paint. If you are new to these blogs and don’t know what the dress brush technique is, it is explained in previous blogs:-).

Now you can paint the leaves with forest green and the lemons with cadmium and primary yellow.
