Home Sweet Home Artwork

Posted by Meghan Quinones

Typically when I use a stencil, I use paint to fill in its design. This time around I wanted to think outside of the box. So, I ended up using Decoupage glue as my medium!

Once I landed on glue and my medium, it only made sense to pair it with gold glitter. I really wanted my stencil to pop! I was a little nervous about this technique and wasn't quite sure how it was going to turn out. I was quite pleased with the end result. The only issue I had was getting glitter all over me! Oh, the life of a crafter. ;)

This glittery "Home Sweet Home" sign is the perfect addition to any room in your house! You could also add a hook to the back and hang it on the wall!

Here's what you'll need:

- 12x12 Piece of Craft Wood
- Multicraft Wall Stencil 12x12 Home Sweet Home
- Decoart Decoupage Glue
- Wow Gold Glitter (Shop glitter here!)
- Any Paper and Embellishments you want (I added ribbon)
- Spray Adhesive

Let's get crafty!

Paint the front and sides of your craft wood. Let it dry.

Spray the back of your stencil with spray adhesive, then place it on your craft wood, making sure it is centered.

Go over your stencil with decoupage glue. You will want to put a nice thick layer over it so your glitter has something to stick to.

Remove you stencil.

Shake your glitter over your glue. Let your glue dry. Once your glue is dry, shake off all excess glitter onto a piece of paper. If you still have loose glitter on your wood, use a paint brush to brush off the excess.

I decided to add gold ribbon to the sides of my quote. I cut two pieces of ribbon that were 13 inches long.

I glued my ribbon to the back of my wood.

I wrapped my ribbon over the front of my wood and glued it to the back.
