I got to try one of the new Stencil1 stencils this week, which I was really excited about because I’m a fan of Ed Roth, the designer behind the line. He’s known for bridging the gap between street artists like Banksy and craft world faves like Martha. In short, this line is right up my alley. I’ve had a sad, sad, sad coffee table lying around for years, and these larger stencils were just what the DIY doctor ordered for it.
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, but there’s still time to get your rainbowy/gold/leprechaun/shamrock crafting on! I like this project because it’s a festive craft that’s pretty easy to accomplish without investing an obscene amount of time. It’s a great way to practice your stenciling, which I find to be a pretty handy DIY skill for everything from home decor to party crafts to handmade jewelry.
