How to make a thrift store Ouija board
Search thrift stores for a unique tray that you can use for the base. Look for something smooth that can be easily painted. I found this amazing wood tray for only a few dollars.
Clean and prep your tray
Clean your tray so there is no dirt or bumps. Sand any gouges so the surface is completely smooth.
Print out your stencil
I purchased an svg from Etsy to use for this project. You can print it on oracal stencil material or just regular permanent vinyl. I used regular since the Oracle local tends to be a little strong for me.
Weed out all of the letters so that the stencil ready to apply.
