USING A VINYL STENCIL
STEP FOUR: Remove backing from stencil, making sure the vinyl remains fixed to the transfer tape.
STEP FIVE: Position stencil where you want it on your painted wood round. If you don’t press it down at this point it’s fairly easy to reposition it a few times to get it where you want it. Since the transfer tape is translucent you can see the edges of the board and how to line it up. If you don’t get it EXACTLY and perfectly on, don’t fret! It will still be adorable… I promise! Try to make it as even as you can and then…
STEP SIX: Smooth it all down onto the board and using a credit card or similar object, burnish stencil and transfer tape down onto the board.
STEP SEVEN: Then, carefully remove the transfer tape, making sure the vinyl remains adhered to the board.
STEP EIGHT: Place your board on a protected surface in a well-ventilated area and spray paint it! I did two light coats and was sure to get all the way around the edge so I had a fun gold edge to my sign.
STEP NINE: Carefully remove stencil before 2nd coat completely dries. This helps prevent the paint from peeling as you remove the stencil. Allow to dry completely and you’re done!
