Hey guys! Today we brought out our Cricut to make an amazing DIY project that I made for a friend of mine who is getting married. I thought it would be the perfect homemade wedding gift for them. It was simple but fun to make, anything with the Cricut is fun! If anyone you know is getting married or if you want to make one for you and your hubby, it turned out amazing and you will get so many compliments on your great personal DIY Stenciled Wood Plank Canvas!
Step 1 : Connect your laptop to the Cricut and upload your stencil design photo.
Step 2 : Measure your stencil to fit nicely on your wood plank canvas, add a piece of vinyl to your cutting mat and smooth it out with the Cricut Scraper. Make sure your Cricut is set to cut vinyl and hit go!
Step 3 : Once your stencil is finished use your Cricut Weeder to carefully remove the inside of all the letters and numbers, then gently peel the vinyl from the mat and you have your stencil.
Step 4 : Carefully unpeel the back from the vinyl then place on your canvas. Once you’ve centered the stencil place the rest of the details on that were left on the bottom of your vinyl piece. press all edges to make sure the edges are sealed.
Step 5 : Now use your pouncer and paint the entire stencil, then slowly peel it off and using the Cricut Tweezers to pull off the small stencil details.
Step 6 : Once dry, if desired attach the needed hardware and display in your home!
