DIY Tutorial: Use Craft Stencils to Make Mix and Match Wall Art!

Vincent Van Gogh once said, "Great things are done by a series of small things brought together." We couldn’t agree more! In this DIY tutorial, we will be showing you how to use our NEW collection of Mini Craft Stencils! Learn how to make your own mix and match wall art with these small scaled patterns that leave your guests captivated. Your friends and family will be so impressed by your knack to decorate – whether they know you made it or assumed you bought it is up to you! To show you how versatile these Craft Stencils are, we will show you how to create two different wall art looks that incorporate our exclusive Wall Art Wood Shapes:

Create Moroccan-Inspired Wall Art with Craft Stencils

Supplies:

Step 1:

Paint a base coat on the precut shapes with two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® decorative paint in Old White using a nylon roller. Let dry between coats.

Step 2:

Use Painter’s Tape to divide the precut shapes into sections and mask the areas you want to stencil or paint.

Step 3:

Place the stencil of your choice in the area that you just masked off. Use a Royal Stencil Creme color of your choice to stencil the pattern onto the area. Let dry.

Step 4:

Move the Painter’s Tape to cover the area that you stenciled to create another section. You can either stencil this new section or paint it a solid color with a foam brush, using a stencil and Royal Stencil Creme of your choice.

Repeat Step 4 until the entire precut shape is painted, stenciled, and you are pleased with the design.

Repeat Steps 1 through 4 with the other four wood shapes. You can follow the same layout that you did for the first one or create different designs for each shape. Here, you can see that we used different designs for each. They remind us of walking through the souks of Moroccan and taking in all the patterns, colors, and beauty of Morocco!

Create Indigo-Inspired Wall Art with Craft Stencils

Supplies:

Step 1:

Paint a base coat on the hexagon wood shapes with two coats of your choice of blue Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® decorative paint using a nylon roller. Let dry between coats.

Step 2:

Use Painter’s Tape to divide the precut shapes into sections and mask the areas you want to stencil or paint.

Step 3:

Paint each section that you mask with different Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® colors, creating a blocking design with the various shades of blue.

Step 4:

Place the stencil of your choice in the area that you just masked off. Use a contrasting Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® color of your choice to stencil the pattern onto the area. Let dry.

Step 5:

Apply a layer of Annie Sloan Clear Wax using a wax brush and buff with a cheesecloth.

Step 6:

Mix one part Annie Sloan Clear Wax and one part Dark Wax. Apply to your 5 precut shapes and buff with cheesecloth.

Repeat Steps 1 through 6 with the other four precut shapes. The popular indigo trend is all about using different patterns with beautiful blue hues – so have fun with it! Mix and match the blue paint colors and Craft Stencils in differently masked sections to create a custom indigo design.

 

Whether the style you are decorating for is Moroccan-inspired, Indigo-inspired, or something entirely different, mixing and matching our new Mini Craft Stencils will create beautifully custom wall art! Let us know how you have created your one of a kind stenciled wall art. We’d love to see how you’ve interpreted your own unique style with our Craft Stencils!
