Eye-catching round signs are so versatile and can be adapted for all seasons and occasions. The sky is the limit when it comes to creating this classic home décor piece or thoughtful gift.
Order the art kit here or gather your own supplies and join me for an hour or two.
The stencil kit contains:
18" unfinished wood round
re-usable sponge brush
sponge wedge for stenciling, or you can use a flat topped stencil brush
undiluted stencil paint
wood cut elements depending on the design you ordered
You will need:
paper plate as a pallet
masking tape (optional)
glue for some designs. I recommend Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue.
Once you're ready, follow the techniques illustrated in clip below or view written instructions. Due to the large range of designs and customizations offered, not each one can be demonstrated individually, but the video shows a more complex multicolor design, using techniques you'll be able to adapt for your sign.
1. PAINT WOOD: using a sponge brush, smooth your color onto the wood. For wood grain to show through, use a very wet brush to dilute the color and wipe off excess paint with a paper towel. For solid finish, do not dilute paint and apply more than 1 coat.
2. DRY: wood must be dry in order to stencil. In a rush, use a hairdryer.
remove grid layer from back of stencil.
position stencil sticky side down onto board.
carefully peel away the white film off the top of the stencil.
using the sponge wedge blot on a super thin layer of paint. Do not overload the sponge, or it will run! Do not dilute with water.
Dry. Repeat 2-3 times until desired coverage.
Once dried, remove the stencil using a pin/ nail or weeding tool to help remove smaller parts of the stencil.
4. WOOD ELEMENTS: (some designs only)
If your design includes a wood cut shape, word or element:
Paint it with a make-up wedge, using as little paint as possible, to prevent paint spillage down the cut edges.
Attach it to your wood sign using wood glue, super glue or craft glue.
If you are using your sign as a tray, want it to hang outside or in a steamy bathroom, you may need to varnish it to protect it.
Wait 24 hours.
