Holiday Fun With Stencils


I got this great holiday stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils! It's so durable and easy to clean, and because I knew I could use it again and again, I decided to have a theme this year when I was invited to Holiday Parties. I always like to bring a home made gift when I show up so I knew exactly what to do with this Stencil.

Every year for my birthday and for Christmas my husband always gives me a Whitman's Sampler. I am always finding creative uses for stuff most people throw away, so I decided to save my Whitman's boxes, knowing I'd find a use.

I painted the top and bottom with some grey chalk paint

Then I taped the stencil to the top

I had some leftover grey and silver ribbon I wanted to use, so I decided to use a metallic silver over the stencil

But because it wasn't metallic enough, I used a glitter holographic paint over the top. I got these at Walmart for a little over 1.50 a piece.

Once I had done several coats of that. I cut and glued my ribbon in place

The last step was to clip on top one of these great silver ornaments that can be taken off and used for decor. I also purchased these at Walmart for 1.75$ each

So now I have my home made gift, to fill with home made cookies, to bring to my favorite holiday host!
