Oh Joy, More Stenciled Objects

Still messing around with stencils - making the missing letters and learning as I go.

Tool box - needed 'something'. Sunshine helped too.

I used the same method to make the tagboard (well, an old yellow file folder) letters T, L, S from the original GROCERY stencil seen here at Getting Creative With Stencils and used the plastic O. Cardboard isn't the greatest preserver of sharpe edges, I prefer a heavy plastic and am contemplating trying to cut the letters out with a sharp blade on plastic (home made) letters.

A peek back at my first GROCERY sign.

I bought my GROCERY stencil from Donna of Funky Junk Interiors

I tried out a makeup sponge with the paint this time (same hint - use a piece of rag/paper to blot. 

Maybe I need a larger size sponge, the small end is a small grip area, but it worked ok. I also made another try with the HERBS stencil I made using my sister's Silhouette Cameo here First Try Stencil Making.

Thank you for visiting today.



  1. I choose a font on my computer, print words or letters out on cardstock and then cut the stencil out.

    The other thing I do is buy jumbo stickers at Michael's and use the outline of the sticker as a stencil.

  2. Pinned! Inspiring. I wnt to stencil some words, too. Thanks for the inspiration. Linda @Crafts a la mode
