A few weeks ago I found this great wooden heart decoration. It's solid wood and wasn't painted except for the sides. I thought it was the perfect craft for using a vinyl stencil.
What's a vinyl stencil? Well, it is pretty simple. It is just like a regular stencil, however, it is sticky. So it will stick to the surface of whatever you're going to paint or decorate. Since this wooden heart was reversible, I wanted to do 2 different stencils.

First, cut out yours vinyl stencil using your cutting machine. I did 2 different stencils. One was like a tradition stencil with the words cut out of the middle. The other, I used just the words and stuck them straight to the board and then painted over them
We put together a fun video demonstrating how we did both types of stencil. I don't know about you, but I love watching short tutorial videos. It is so satisfying. So I hope you enjoy too.
Personally, I think both sides turned out really cute. The best part, is this heart is reversible. So when I get tired of one side I can turn it around and display the other side.
