This is a really simple tutorial with a pretty awesome result that I felt a lot of people could have some fun with. I have seen these in a couple of magazines, design sites, and Pinterest (of course) and thought, "Pshshshsh, I could totally do that". Stencil cut canvases ended up being a super easy one-evening project that really dressed up our hallway.
I grabbed three canvases that I had laying around. You can use any size you want, but the ones I used were 8x10 inches. I might recommend slightly larger ones to make the cutting easier, but these weren't too bad.I then went online and found some stencils that I liked to use on them.
(To be fair, I actually couldn't find stencils I liked, so I actually just found a couple pictures of rooms with wallpaper that caught my eye and then photoshopped them into stencils that I just printed on regular paper. Here are the three I used so that you can use them, too!)
-A stencil for each canvas. They can be the same or different. Dealer's choice.
-White glue/spray adhesive/stencil adhesive. Any one of these will work.
First, measure the inside portion of the back of the canvas. Trim your stencil down so that it fits and set it inside to make sure.
Keep checking back here for more updates coming very soon! We are currently working on painting Scott's office, and I just refinished a filing cabinet with some interesting finishing touches. See you guys next week!
