How To Stencil Scrap Wood

Step 1 – Mix your Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint to your desired paint or stain thinness, the beauty of milk paint is you can mix if for full coverage, or add a little water and make it thinner like stain.

Step 2 – using your stencil or a piece or word from a stencil, dip your brush in the paint then take it ALL off on your paper towel. You want a dry brush.

Step 3  – holding your stencil firmly down, pounce or swirl your brush lightly over your stencil

Step 4 – once dry, you can sand and distress a little, then add some MMS Furniture Wax or MMS Hemp Oil to liven up your piece.

Step 5 – stand back and admire your cute little Holiday blocks.

See, easy peasy!

Join us Sunday on Facebook for Day 6, we will be decoupaging some pretty Holiday blocks!
