Stamping and Stenciling Gardening is about combining different crafts and interests to create art!
Like most crafters you probably have many interests and enjoy a large variety of media to work with. I bet you also take any opportunity to try new things. This article is about combining some of the interests you may already have into a new and exciting way to design and create.
If you like creating art with stamps and stenciling and also love to work in the dirt to watch things grow than you'll love this idea of stamping and stenciling gardening creation. I took some regular terra cotta pots and spruced them up with some cute stencils then added some touchy sentiments with stamps.
I find that it is easiest to put images in place with a stencil and then add words with stamps. Especially for this stamping and stenciling gardening project, stamps on round pots are much easier to work with.
There are so many ways you can use this idea besides planting. I like to do this for gifts. You can put a plant in it if you like but what about filling it with peppermints for that person that doesn't quite have a green thumb. Or maybe you could bake some fresh cookies, fill it with soaps or fresh scented bath powders wrapped in a pretty fabric. The possibilities are endless.
You can find the butterflies and the hearts stencils free at Face Paint Stencils and the dragonfly at Free Stencils. The bee is available in the Secret Garden Book of Stencils available below. Since you are interested in gardening don't miss the Flower Stencil where we paint a garden on a rug.
