Out of all the Christmas crafts I created this season, this one has to be the easiest and has the most beautiful outcome. No power tools or saws; just paint and stencils!
First things first, pick out the letters to spell the cheery word of your choice! For this project I wanted to create "Joy" to make it a nice short and sweet phrase. I painted my letters a solid red and sipped some hot cocoa as I waited for it to fully dry to get into the Christmas spirit.
Next up is the stenciling process! I centered my stencil on each letter and secured it down with a little tape to assure it didn't move around on me. Then I just started stenciling in white using small circular motions and light pressure. I also went in and added a little white glitter to my stencil before removing it which was the perfect shiny touch. After revealing my design I saw how much these colors and patterns elevated these simple wooden letters SO much with just a few easy steps.
After painting it was time to decorate! I assembled these with some Alien Tape on the back to hold them up vertically on a pillar. They looked so amazing and was truly a project anyone can do!!
