Frog Stencil from all-about-stencils.com

Let's start with a real cutie that will make you wanna pucker up and kiss! But keep reading and scrolling to find some ways to use stencils that will have you hopping with joy.

Have you ever thought of making hangable art prints with stencils. It’s a cool way to create the custom art which is going to be perfect for your decor. At Stencil Art Prints you’ll find a few other examples and some tips. Scroll down because I slipped an example of an art print made with a frog stencil.

Below you'll find a book with four cute little frog stencils that are ready to join your rain forest. The frogs in the book are multi-layer stencils and this free one is an easy one layer image of the most loved frog. Try things out with this guy and if you want more detail, then give the book a try.

Plus check out the long list of animal stencils you can find in the list on the right! While browsing the list you’ll find many have free printable stencils with craft projects.

Stenciled Frog Dresser Project from www.all-about-stencils.com You’ll see an old chest of drawers turn into a delightful addition to any room in need of a fresh focal point and conversation piece.

Older pieces of furniture are way better than most new ones. Things built even 20 or 30 years ago were made with stronger wood products and better craftsmanship. The older the item is the more likely it will be around even longer. So why not redesign an old piece instead of buying something new. Fortunately these items can be found at flea markets and thrift stores at very reasonable prices. Although sometimes you get lucky and run across one that someone is throwing out. Maybe you have one that you want to throw out. Don’t…paint it!

That’s exactly what I did here. This was an old dresser that had been in my garage and I can’t tell you how many times I overlooked it. Then I needed some extra storage in a spare room and remembered this piece. It was a perfect fit but it needed a redo badly. So I went to work.

Frog Stencil Art Print from all-about-stencils.com

First, I lightly sanded the entire piece and spray painted with a light green for my Rain Forest back drop. Then I splashed on some forest greenery. Don’t worry…it was easy. Pour several colors of green on a palette. Drag a paint brush through the different colors, spinning as you go to get the bristles coated with the colors. Then using the same spinning motion, brush the paint onto the surfaces while swaying from side to side in your lines (like as if you were skiing).This will create some vine-like accents. I used a tapered end paint brush but a flat end will work just as well. Next dab a brush into the paints with an up and down motion allowing the bristles to pick up several of the colors. Use the same dabbing motion to create some areas of foliage on your dresser. I like to use one of my round head stenciling brushes for this but any one that has thick bristles will work. Don’t be shy about this. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll realize the brushes and the colors do most of the work for you. I only made a few areas of foliage because I wanted my frogs to stand out but go as crazy as you want. Remember this is your masterpiece.

Next, I decided where to put the frog stencils. Take a little time with this and put the frogs where they will really pop. It’s easier if they don’t cross over drawers or around corners but sometimes that ads creativity so weigh the options on your project.

Once your background color is in place, line up your stencil overlays and start painting.

Need help with colors? Don’t fret. Just visit this page for some stenciling techniques to help you make the right color choices.

Here is a close up of the painting. Notice that I have the Hanging Around Frog Stencil dangling from a branch across two drawers. It was a challenge but I like the way it looks.

I have the perfect compliment for a Rain Forest Scene like this so don't miss the Free Tropical Flower Stencil!

Before of Frog Dresser from www.all-about-stencils.com Here's a picture of what the dresser looked like when I pulled it out of the garage. As you can see it wasn’t anything special but it was made from good solid wood. Now it’s a very interesting piece that provides some much needed storage.
