Other Supplies

Heart-shaped picture frame, Sand in the color of your choice, Paintbrush


  1. Paint your frame using the Vanilla Bean paint. Give several coats (front and back) and let dry.
  2. Decide on your design placement – I put the woodgrain pattern straight across the front of the frame, four times.
  3. Carefully peel the stencil from the backer and place down on the frame; smooth.
  4. Use the Spouncers to apply Mod Podge to the stencil. Work quickly so that the Mod Podge doesn’t dry. Be careful not to get the Mod Podge over the edge. 
  5. Remove the stencil and sprinkle sand on top of the Mod Podge. 
  6. Dump the sand off onto a piece of paper (pour back into the packet). 
  7. Repeat the process with the remaining woodgrain – being careful not to disturb the designs you’ve already done. I waited about 30 minutes before repeating the pattern.
  8. Let the Mod Podge dry completely.
  9. Use the paintbrush or a similar tool to remove the excess sand from the surface.
  10. Let dry for 24 hours before using. 
Tip: To prolong the life of your stencil, wash it immediately and return to the backer after use.
