I “needed” a few galvanized metal-looking stencils to complete a little tableaux atop my kitchen cupboards.
A stroke of
frugality genius compelled me to cut my letters out of 5 layers of cardstock with my #Silhouette and then glue them together for desired thickness. A little black/grey/blue/silver paint dabbed here & there gave the appearance of aged zinc stencils.
My dad had given me the perfect slab of wood a couple years back -- all I had to do was dust it of & then run a light wash of grey over it.Fortunately in the garage I found some small silver-toned nails that looked just right hammered into the corners of the stencils.(I think I only bent one nail…)Ta-da!
