Do you read Mod Podge Rocks? My friend, Amy Anderson is the brains behind that blog (and DIY Candy, and Washi Tape Crafts) and she is such a genius that she has her own line of stencils on the market.
I was really excited to give the Mod Podge Rocks stencils a try and make this Skeleton Key stenciled mirror.
(FYI? It is super difficult to photograph a mirror. Even more difficult if you’re trying to photograph it while sporting yoga pants, a mom-bun and sans make-up!)
Anyhoo. There are several different patterns of these stencils to choose from.
I decided to try the skeleton key pattern as well as the fun geometric pattern on the bottom right. Lots and lots of possibilities. One of the things I absolutely LOVE about these stencils is that they are sticky. Place it where you want it and press it down. No paint bleeding under the edges because it just can’t. No smudges because the stencil shifted while you were applying the paint. Genius!
I had a round mirror that had been a part of a centerpiece at a banquet we attended. (We were invited to take the centerpieces home… don’t judge.)
To make this simple stenciled mirror I simply placed the stencil where I wanted it and dabbed on some Mod Podge Lustre. Working quickly, I moved the stencil around the mirror and added more “keys” to the mirror. While the Mod Podge was still wet, I peeled off the stencil, took the mirror outside and lightly sprinkled the whole thing with a fine champagne gold glitter.
Let everything dry for a couple of hours, then brush off the excess glitter. Done.
I put it on a book shelf for a little light and bright visual interest. A quick, easy, and practically free project. I love these Mod Podge Rocks stencils! Have you tried them?
(This is not a sponsored post… I received a complimentary set of stencils to try and this is just my honest opinion after giving these a try. Enjoy!)
