DIY to Try: Stenciled Wood Tray
Ed Roth is making stenciling cool again. His street art-inspired brand, Stencil1, was founded in 2004 and has since been praised by the grande DIY-dame herself, Martha Stewart. His modern collection includes everything from seven foot tall grizzly bears, to plaid and leopard prints. We love the idea of stenciling a whole wall in a print for an energizing focal wall, or giving your old accessories an update for Spring. Here, a boring wood tray is given new life with a simple application of one of Roth's stencils. See below for instructions, and prepare yourself for a major DIY-high. Supplies Star Pattern Stencil Tape Stencil Brush ½" Wood Tray Paper Towels Instructions Measure and mark the center of tray. Place stencil on tray centering one element over marked center of tray. Tape in place if desired. Stencil star pattern with white paint. Tape off edges if needed to prevent paint from getting on tray. Repeat pattern until tray bottom is covered as desired.
