1. Cut a board down to the desired size. My vinyl piece measured 12 inches long so I cut my board 14 inches long.
2. Spray paint it (or roll it) your desired color
3. After that has dried take the stencil that you would like the pattern of and lay it on top of your board. My stencil was a little smaller than my board so I had to move the stencil around and paint it several times.
I would suggest NOT spray painting it like I did. I centered the stencil on my board and sprayed it first and then I had to lay the stencil down 4 different times in each corner to finish the entire board off.
Next time, I would start in 1 corner and spray the stencil and then move it to the other corners, making sure to line up the stencil each time. It would lessen the amount of times you would have to move the stencil and spray.
Also, you will either need to be REALLY quick when you are repositioning and spraying each time, OR wait after each spray for the paint to no longer be tacky. Otherwise, the paint will stick to your stencil when you move it. I am not very patient so I tried to be as quick as I could which worked for the most part, but not completely.
I used the Small Casbah Trellis stencil from Royal Design Studio Stencils
4. Now take your vinyl letter and put it onto your board.
I used the the Classic Letters Monogram Vinyl Wall Decal from Wallternatives. They not only have the letters, but they have a ton of amazing different vinyl and fabric decals for your home. Seriously, head on over and check their website out. It is amazing! I especially love all of their designs in Chalkboard Vinyl.
