How to Use Floral Transfers and Stencils to Make a Sign

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Spread out your vigorous violet floral transfer and cut out each floral design that you want to transfer. Cut out any elements you don’t want to use.
  2. Align the stencil over the floral transfer paper to find the right placement. Trim the extra off. Pull off the backing and be careful that it doesn’t fold over and stick to itself.
  3. Stick the floral transfers onto your sign backing and use the transfer tool to press the design onto the backing. Pull back the top layer to make sure it is sticking. Remove the top layer and sand any excess off the edges.
  4. Place the stencil on top of the tile and use your deep purple paint and user your dauber to dab into the words.
  5. Take the purple flower you cut out earlier and remove the backing. Place in the lower left-hand corner and use your transfer tool to transfer it onto your sign. Pull off the plastic to make sure the transfer worked. Trim the bottom and sand the extra on the edge.

Supplies

Steps:

  1. Remove the knob on your window with a screwdriver from the back. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. You can also paint the back of your window to make it all pop!  I painted mine Fusion’s Bayberry.
  2. Pick which floral transfers you’d like to use on your window and cut them out with scissors. Pull the backing off and don’t let it come in contact with itself. Place on the glass and cut off any extra to fit.
  3. Use a transfer tool and press it out to adhere to the glass completely. Pull off the sticky top and push down any transfers that didn’t release and adhere to the glass. Push out any air bubbles.
  4. Once you’ve added your floral transfers, if you want to add any extra transfers to the piece, just cut out from your paper and repeat the same process to adhere the transfer to the glass. Be careful not to scratch any previous transfers.
  5. Place the stencil onto the glass where you would like it. Use the dauber to dab your paint into the words. Remove the stencil and wipe off any extra paint. Use the blow dryer or heat gun to dry.
  6. Place the stencil back onto the glass where you previously painted and offset it just a little. Use a white paint to go over the letters and make them pop.
