You'll never guess how easy it is to add a stenciled image to a blanket you own! All you need to personalize and customize your own blanket (or anything, really) is some fabric paint, low-tack adhesive spray and a Stencil1 stencil.

This project features step-by-step photos to show you how to layer on the paint, but you'll be amazed at how quickly this comes together. Add a personal touch to everything you own!

Project Instructions

  1. For this project you’ll need a blanket, a brush, fabric paint, low-tack adhesive spray and a stencil. The stencil we used is the Large Antlered Deer Stencil. Spray the backside of your stencil with the low-tack adhesive spray and place it onto the wooly blanket in the position you want. This spray helps keep your stencil in place so it does not shift while you are painting. Dip your brush into some paint and wipe away the excess to prevent any bleeding.

  2. Begin to paint the open spaces of the stencil. Since you’ll be painting on fabric, it’s best to dab the paint and build up the color. This process helps to not smudge the paint and create crisp edges.

  3. After you have finished painting, remove the stencil carefully to reveal your work.

  4. And there you have it! Paint one or more deer onto your blanket as you desire!
