Hi. My name is Talitha and I’m addicted to shiny things. There. I said it. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? As much as I like shiny and sparkly stuff, I’ve always been a little afraid of glitter. I blame it on a first grade art project that ended with me washing glitter out of my hair for weeks! But, when Amy from Mod Podge Rocks emailed me asking me if I would review her new line of stencils, I decided that maybe it was a good time to give glitter a second chance. BTW, after getting Amy’s email, I may or may not have done a little happy dance while yelling, “SHE KNOWS ME!?!?” a la Buddy the Elf. Yeah. I know. Me = weirdo.
First things first, these stencils are awesome! For serious, peeps. Not only are they adhesive (praise the Lord for no smeary messes!) but they are totally washable and reusable! Love! Plus they are totally versatile! You can use them on so many different types of mediums with so many different craft products. Imagine using these stencils with a little fabric paint and making your own pillow! Or some glass paint on a mason jar! So many possibilities!
Anywho. On to the tutorial. To make my little stenciled pail I needed a piece of paper (to catch that messy glitter), the stencil (duh), Mod Podge, glitter, a pail (from the Target dollar aisle), a spouncer, and a paint brush.
Start by carefully peeling the stencil off it’s backing and placing it on your pail. Spounce/dab a little Mod Podge onto the stencil. Work thoroughly but quickly because Mod Podge dries quickly! Slowly peel the stencil off of the pail.
Pour glitter over the Mod Podge-d areas. Dump off any excess glitter. Beware the dreaded glitter mess. And whatever you do, don’t let Joey P. from first grade near the glitter. Just don’t.
A little glitter will still be clinging to the pail. So once the pail has dried just grab a big fluffy brush and brush off the excess glitter.
Isn’t it cute!? I tossed a few springy eggs into my pail and it now sits with my little spring display.
Now on to the fun part! Who wants to win a stencil of their own!? Enter to win using the Rafflecopter widget below! Good luck!
