Materials Needed:

Step 1

Center the stencil on the tabletop and attach it with repositionable spray adhesive. Using a foam pouncer, fill in the stencil with crafts paint. Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet, let dry, then reposition it so it lines up next to the part you already painted. Repeat until the entire tabletop is covered. Let dry.

Step 2

Repeat for the tabletop’s edges, cutting the stencil if needed.
