Stencil In the Reindeer

Use spray adhesive or spray mount on the back of your stencil and place on your burlap.
Begin to paint. Make sure you use the "pounce" method so paint doesn't get under your stencil.

Attach Burlap to Background

To mount to the wood, spray the back of the burlap with spray adhesive. Place on the wood and smooth out flat.
