Having your friends over for a drink to watch the Oscars on Sunday, March 2? Make all your guests feel like a star by serving their drinks on this fabulous tray we made using our star stencil!
Create This Stenciled Serving Tray
You’ll need a wooden tray, multi-surface paint, stencils and stencil brushes.
Step 1: Make sure that the tray you are using is not coated. If it is, just sand it down a bit before painting. Start by roughly deciding where you want to stencil the tray. We decided to do several stars, evenly spread out.
Step 2: Place down the stencil and begin to paint it. You can secure the stencil onto the wood with tape or simply hold it down with your hand. When painting, use a dry-brush technique. This means you are using very little paint and applying several layers.
Step 3: Finish stenciling the rest of your tray. If you need to overlap a painted star to stencil a different part of the tray, make sure the paint is completely dry to avoid smudges.
Step 4: When you are done stenciling allow the paint dry. You can use a blow dryer to speed this up.
Lastly, make your drinks and assemble them on your new tray! Don’t forget to share your pictures with us @EdStencil1!
