Do you love antique, farmhouse style crafts as much as we do? If you said yes, this is the project for you!
For this project you will need:
- Farm Fresh Milk Craft Stencil, found here
- Stencil Paint Brush, found here
- Black Acrylic Paint, found here
- Spray adhesive, found here
- Painters Tape, found here
- Fine Sand Paper
- Paper towel and plate
Lets get started!
First paint your entire box with chalk- finish paint. Once the box is covered, and has dried completely, distress the surface with fine sand paper, to give the box an antique look. Then wipe off any dust with a damp paper towel.
Now you can spray the back side of your stencil with adhesive. Make sure you hold the can 8-12 inches away from the stencil, then let it dry for about 30 seconds. Then you can press your stencil into the box, using a ruler to make sure your stencil is centered. Tape around the edges with painters tape to make sure that paint doesn’t get outside of the stencil.
Now that your box is ready to be painted, squeeze out a bit of paint onto a paper plate, you don’t need a lot of paint. Load your brush with paint, then swirl off most of the paint into a paper towel, until the bristles feel dry to touch. Then you can start lightly swirling the paint through the stencil. It is much better to apply many thin layers of paint than one thick layer. This prevents the paint from bleeding out of the stencil or building up along the edges.
Once you are happy with the opacity of the paint, peel off of your stencil and enjoy!
