Today I am going to show you how you can stencil pretty much anything in less than a minute. I found these adorable  wood coasters at Target and I gave them a quick makeover using stencils and spray paint. I love how the gold patterns give them a modern chic look.

By the way if you want a non-alcoholic delicious drink for New Years

put some frozen berries inside of cold sparkly Apple Cider. I love this!

OK, back to how to make the coasters!

First place your stencil right on top of the surface you want to stencil.

I used for mine this polka dot Handmade Charlotte Stencil.

It is important that your surface is clean and oil free before you paint it since 

any paint will stick properly if you do this!

Then all you have to do is spray it!

If you want to avoid runs keep the spray paint at the advised distance that is listed on the can.

My favorite gold spray paint is Metallic Gold from Krylon. It has a rich tone that I love.

    Awesome inspiration! Just curious, where did you get the coasters that you’ve used for your polka dot spray paint coasters?

  3. Love this post. I used to be a stencil fanatic and somehow I think I got rid of all my stencils. {I had a ton!} I guess I will have to go visit handmade charlotte too because you got me wanting to stencil again!
