I used the amazing FolkArt Multi-Surface paint with my large (12×12) floral stencil. This size would be perfect on walls, but since we’re renting I decided to update a smaller item. The Multi-Surface paint can be used indoor, outdoor, on fabric, and is even dishwasher-safe! (Told ya it was amazing!)
To get started, I recommend testing out the pattern on a piece of paper. Use a flat stencil brush and go light on the paint at first until you get a feel for it. Then when you’re ready to go, make sure to tape your stencil down to hold it in place. Using the flat brush with short, pouncing motions will prevent the paint from bleeding underneath the stencil.
Now for the fun part! My kids are so excited to have a spot to hold our spring/summer essentials: bubbles, chalk, flip-flops and sunscreen. I like having a cute container that looks very appropriate for Spring!
