DIY Stencil

July 13, 2018

I love all the cute things painted onto concrete so I decided to make my own DIY stencil and give it a try. I bought a package of DIY stencil material at a local craft store and then used my Cricut to cut out the design.

I wanted to use chalk paint that would wash off the concrete and I found this washable chalk spray paint that worked great for washing off. The paint did bleed when I sprayed the stencil. I sprayed a lot because it was such a light color so it was probably user error. I think it turned out okay, but I would hope for better next time. I haven’t tried it again yet, but when I do I’ll post it if the results turn out any better. If you have any tips for not having the bleed issue I’d love to hear them.

I used stencil material that wasn’t for the Cricut. Having the Cricut cut it out was so much easier than me doing it by hand like the instructions said.

All done with this try!
