Stencils are used to transfer images and letters onto surfaces with duplicating precision. They are useful for a variety of projects, including adding images to wood. You can create wooden plaques to hang in your home or to gift to a friend. For a rustic theme, stencil bears and moose on wood, which only requires a few rudimentary craft supplies.
Position the bear and moose stencils onto their desired positions on the wood. Cover the area of wood exposed around the stencil with newspaper to prevent spraying paint outside the stencil.
Apply spray primer to the area within the stencils to prepare the wood for spray painting. This helps the spray paint transfer more evenly onto the wood and helps prevent smearing as well. Allow the spray primer to dry completely before applying the spray paint.
Spray paint within the lines of the stencil in even, fluid motions to transfer the images of the bear and moose onto the wood.
Pull the stencils from the wood, and reposition them to stencil more bears and moose onto the wood.
