Reinvent the Holidays: DIY Ornaments (Free Template!)

ornaments_LetItSnow

 

Ornaments are not exclusively for trees. In fact, these paper ornaments look great as a paper garland for your door or wall and they also make great gift tags!

We made these ornaments using a template (download this template for free below!) and Clearsnap Crafter’s Ink. When you stencil these, use very little ink and a sponge! Allow 10 mins for the ink to dry if you use glossy paper.

These are the stencils we used: Corsiva Font , Winter Holiday Pack, Sayings Pack and our new 6 x 6 patterns

Reinvent the Holidays: Wooden Ornaments

IMG_7940

Add some flare to your Christmas tree with these geometric ornaments. Contrast solid blocks of color with our Stencil1 geometric patterns.

To make these ornaments you’ll need Stencil1 pattern stencils (take a look at our new small pattern stencils here!), multi-surface paint, wooden ornaments, painters tape, stenciling brushes and string.

For the solid blocks of color: use tape to section off areas before painting.

For the patterns: Stencil using a dry brush technique, use very little paint and apply numerous layers!

Send us photos of what you make! @Stencil1
