One of the many reasons I love vinyl is because not only can you use it to create fabulous designs, but you can also use it as a stencil. WHAT!? Yup, it’s true In fact I use vinyl as a stencil almost as much as I use the vinyl for a design itself.
In one of my most recent projects I did for my home, I did just that. I used leftover vinyl as a stencil to give my wooden pallet-style sign a “hand-painted” look without actually hand-painting letters. In my opinion, this is a much simpler and quicker option. And, since I lack patience and the ability to paint a straight line, for me, this trick also helps my hand-painted designs turn out way better then I could do if left to my own devices.
