Hello Stencil Lovers! I am super excited to share my post for today because it is part of my favorite holiday! I love decorating for Halloween with my family and thought our mantle needed a little extra something. I have lots of copper and warm metallic hues and thought some sugar skulls and roses would be a great compliment!
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
I started my projects by using two of the small ‘Bits’ stencils and some plain heavy cardstock.I used the Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste (still my fav!) and mixed it with black acrylic paint.I applied the mixture over the sugar skull stencil multiple times, making sure to lift it carefully to get a clean impression.Next, I combine the regular thick Modeling Paste and acrylic paint in red, and mist in peach.I used that for the roses and made multiples of each color. I wasn’t too careful about the entire stencil since I knew I would be doing the leaves separate. I did the same process for the leaves using green acrylic paint.After the paste was all dry, I trimmed them each out leaving a small border around each image. I then used a thick sheet to laminate the pieces. I wanted to be able to use this next year and wanted it to stand up to storage, or getting wet, if I hang it outside.Finally, I trimmed out all the newly laminated pieces.Using a hot glue gun, I adhered all the pieces to a vine wreath, layering the roses, leaves and skulls randomly.Here is a close up. I think the lamination almost makes them look like iced cookies!I love the colors and it makes a perfect addition to our decor!
