This doesn't mean your stencil is going to look bad. In fact, we have a few steps and magic techniques to help you achieve the best possible outcome with your stencil.
We are simply telling you that when crafting, if things don't go on perfectly, don't be too hard on yourself! Handmade items always have such great character....and at the end of the day, we are alway our biggest critics!
Board cut to size (for your sign)
Paint for surace of sign
Paint for letters or design on sign
(2) Foam paint brushes
Exacto knife or a sharp instrument
This sounds like a big list, but chances are you will have most of these things sitting around the house.
Your stencil should look something like this.
Paint over the words on your sign with the exact same color you used on you board surface.
Mine is white in this demonstration.
**A thin layer is optimal! The thicker you paint this layer, the better chance you have of "peeling paint" when removing your stencil.

Happy stenciling friends!
Hi where did you get this stencil? Looking for something exactly like this.
We actually made it. If you know someone with a Cricut or Silhouette vinyl machine, they can cut any design just like this.
Is the stencil just contact paper?
Yep! I like Duck brand the best. It adheres really well to the board.
what font did you use for this sign love it
I’m having an issue with the paint pulling up from the base wood when pulling vinyl stencils off. It pulls up paint and some wood splinters.
We are sanding prior to painting with 220, We are also taking 220 over the paint before we lay the adhesive vinyl stencil.
Not sure what we’re doing wrong.
I am not sure either as it sounds like you are doing it correctly. Two questions that come to mind... 1- What type of paint are you using and 2- How long are you letting the base paint dry before applying your stencil?
