Here is an easy way to add some sparkle to a stenciled sign. Check out this tutorial to see how I use registration marks for multi-color designs and this tutorial for stenciling multi-color designs.
Here’s what you need:
Extra Fine Glitter
Here’s what you do:
Drill holes if you’ll be hanging your sign. Then, paint your board and distress if desired.
Apply the first layer of the vinyl stencil.
Paint and let dry, then remove the vinyl. Be sure to leave the registration marks.
Apply the next stencil layer, making sure to align the registration marks.
Paint over the design with glue (I used Elmer’s). Then sprinkle with glitter. I pushed the glitter down with my finger to be sure it got in all the tiny spaces. I found it was best to work in small sections so the glue didn’t dry before I added the glitter.
After the glue is dry, remove the excess glitter. Then, carefully pull off the vinyl.
Use a small paint brush to brush away all the extra glitter. This part can be very time consuming.
But, I think the results are worth it.
So pretty and sparkly!
