Learn how to edit text on chalk paste stencils to say what you want them to say.
Magnolia Design Co. has a wide selection of lovely chalk paste stencils and they are perfect just the way they are.
But sometimes I want to change a word or two. That is possible by creating a new stencil.
There are many ways to make a new stencil. A Cricut machine, hand cut vinyl or card stock, or use a text stencil you purchased. Don’t forget you can borrow text from other chalk stencils as well.
How to Edit Text on Chalk Paste Stencils Video Tutorial
Easily Edit Text on using Cricut
If you have a Cricut machine, this will be an easy and quick project for you. If you don’t have a Cricut, you can hand cut a stencil out of vinyl or card stock. To create the new text stencil, start out by finding a similar font as the original to use for your text. Be sure to measure how big the text needs to be.
After that, it’s pretty easy. The hardest part is to keep reminding yourself not to chalk over the text you are going to change. After you are done chalking the original stencil, pull that stencil up. Let that dry for a few minutes. In the video I don’t wait and I mess up the first chalk paste with my sleeve. Oh well….I can fix it.
Now it is time to put the new text stencil in it’s place. Once you have it lined up, chalk it just like you did the original stencil. You may need to put the chalk paste on a bit thicker than the Magnolia Design stencil. Without the mesh in the stencil, its hard not to take too much chalk paste away.
Easy peasy! Don’t look at all my mistakes, I will clean that up when I am done. But that took less than 5 minutes to chalk. That is a quick DIY home decor project.
If it doesn’t sound so easy, go watch the video. I think it shows how easy it really is. Except, don’t make the mistakes that you see me making.
