My project deets...I don’t know about you but the endless act of picking up toys can seem like a losing battle for me. So I decided to get creative and use my Cutting Edge Stencils for something that is functional + fab + fun. Our playroom is in the front room of our house so I try my best to make this area presentable at all times because looks matter in this space! I had the brilliant idea to make personalized burlap activity mats for each of my kiddos to motivate them to keep their toys confined to a small area. Once done playing with one toy they must put it away in order to pull something new. Time to make your own right?!
What You’ll Need:
· Chalkboard Spray Paint
· Burlap or Similar Fabric
· Protective Backing
I opted to use a stencil, chalkboard spray paint, and clear tape for a FAST and functional project. Simply take clear tape and tape down edges of the stencil.
I sprayed at a downward angle in order to prevent the paint from lifting the stencil too much. I wanted more of a rustic feel…think coffee bean bag so perfectly cut painted edges weren’t necessary.
IMPORTANT: you will need to put a barrier behind the fabric you are spraying, as the paint will likely seep through onto your working surface. Once dry I cut out the mat to my desired size. Next it was time to PLAY!
I hope this craft project helps you conquer the battle on toys in your house! A GREAT IDEA: this project can be quickly made for a themed playdate or party at very little cost and will make clean up a breeze! What do you think of my craft?..my littles LOVED! Go and vote for me now!
