But if you’；re looking for a turkey day decor idea that’；s even more simple than what we’；ve shown above then you’；re going to love our next one!？ We’；d like to welcome back Cris， the queen of crafting and blogger behind Crissy Crafts.？ Now Cris is no newbie when it comes to stenciling， in fact you might remember her Dandelion stenciled pallet art or her Damask stenciled powder room.？ But out of all of her stenciling projects， we’；re gonna guess that this Thanksgiving wall art was the easiest of them all.？ It was so simple to create and it’；s absolutely perfect for the holiday feast.
Here is the scoop on how to stencil a Thanksgiving wall art (this project comes from Crissy Crafts)：
1. Gather Materials： Start the stencil project by gathering all of the materials listed above.
2. Prep the canvas： Paint the entire canvas in？FolkArt’；s Medium Yellow using the？Dense Foam 2″； Roller.？ Position the vinyl letters on the painted canvas.？ The Give Thanks graphic used for this project was created using the Silhouette.？ If you don’；t have a Silhouette， then you could trace the lettering on a sheet of vinyl and hand cut it out with a scissor.？ Once the Give Thanks graphic is positioned then paint the canvas ( you will be painting over the lettering) using FolkArt white.
3. Secure The Stencil： Position the stencil design on the canvas. Measure the placement of the stencil to ensure the pattern is centered. Then you can secure the stencil in place using painter’；s tape.
4. Start Stenciling： Pour your craft paint onto a plate or paint tray.？ Then dip your stencil brush into the paint. Blot off the excess paint onto your folded paper towel until the brush looks almost dry.？ The key to stenciling is using as little paint as possible.？ Too much paint will cause the design to bleed and smudge.？ Next you will paint the design onto the canvas with the stencil brush using a dry brush (stippling) technique.？ Stippling is when you tap the brush repeatedly over the stencil opening.？ Depending on how big your canvas is， you may need to reposition the stencil so you can continue to paint the pattern.？ Be sure to let the paint dry a little before you reposition the stencil.？ After the stencil is complete， let the paint dry.
5. Complete the Graphic： Remove the vinyl letters from the canvas.？ As you peel them away， you’；ll notice that part of your stencil design is removed and the yellow that you originally painted is now visible.
Now let’；s feast your eyes on this beautiful wall art!

You’ve been telling yourself if you make it through the insanity of the work week you’ll be rewarded with a weekend of nothing but oversized PJ’s, a good book, and plenty of sleep.
When I got started, I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to make it into a piece of jewelry. ?I ended up keeping it simple and just using it as a cabochon. ?The brilliant thing about that is that you can make personal pieces to fit trays you may already have in your stash – in the colors and designs you want. ?You could potentially make one for every season, because they are inexpensive, easy – and of course, fun to make!
They say that girls are made from sugar, spice and all things nice but sometimes, girls can have a slightly gross sense of humor! Go against the gender norm by looking through our list of gifts for 2 year old girls and picking her out something fart related, or a funny slogan tee.
