Make Your Own DIY Stencil and Linky Party #206

Welcome To The 206th Masterpiece Monday! 

Hi Friends!
Thank you for joining me for another Masterpiece Monday. I've had this cute little wooden box in my craft room forever, waiting for me to figure out just the right purpose for it.
I decided the other day to make it into an easy last minute Christmas gift, by using a hand drawn stencil and some painters tape. You can easily download an image you like and cut it out. I decided to try and just draw an image myself.
If you have one of those lonely unused craft items just sitting around, why not turn it into a cute gift for someone? It's easy!
I had some gold paint laying around and used a cotton ball to apply the paint over the homemade stencil.   The cotton ball gave the paint a little texture. I used painters tape to secure the stencil.
I applied painters tape to the base of the box at an angle and painted on the gold paint to give a gold dipped look.
I decorated the inside with a piece of removable wrapping paper and all done! And there you are, an easy upcycled Christmas gift.
