Materials Needed:

  • paint (any color)

Step 1

Center the stencil on the planter and attach it with repositionable spray adhesive. Using a foam pouncer, fill in the stencil with crafts paint.

Step 2

Remove the stencil while the paint is still slightly wet. Let dry, then reposition the stencil so it lines up next to the part you already painted. Repeat until the entire planter is covered. Let dry.
