Rustic Retreat Crafts: Stenciled Latte Bowls

Rustic Retreat Crafts: Stenciled Latte Bowls

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2007

Introduction

We used an image of a horse as our stencil, but you can use any design that captures your attention. The project will be easier if you pick an image that doesn't have a lot of intricate detail; you may want to consult a stencil book.

materials

  • Image to use as a stencil

  • Thin sheet of vinyl or plastic (preferably self-adhesive)

  • Craft knife

  • Large ceramic latte bowls

  • Porcelain or ceramic paint

steps

  1. Place the photocopied page on the vinyl sheet. Using the craft knife, carefully cut around the image, creating a stencil; discard the cutout.

  2. Tape or adhere the stencil to a bowl, and then paint inside the stencil. (It may take a few coats to cover the surface completely.) Repeat with remaining bowls.

  3. Fire bowls in an oven according to the directions on the paint packaging.
