Well, the opinions varied but I appreciate the comments on my last post about whether or not I should add a stencil to the Burlap Wine Bag I made a few days ago. The majority said “STENCIL IT!!! “ So I did!
It was a quick and easy addition. I did a google search for Halloween Witch Silhouette and found the witch I liked best and I printed it out after I played around with getting it just the right size. Then I cut out my own stencil with this:
It is the neatest little tool. It allows you to burn your own stencils and works just like a wood burning tool that came in those wood burning kits that I always wanted when I was a kid. I purchased it at Michaels earlier this year with a 40% off coupon of course and you can buy the blank stencil sheets there too. It’s very easy and very fun to do. After I burned the the outline of my witch I used it as a stencil on the top of my wine bag.
And you know about my fascination with numbering everything. Lucky 13 was just what this bag needed. I have been asked several times where I got my number stencils. I purchased a set from MAISON DE STENCILS and I also have a set from STENCILS ON LINE .
There were a lot of suggestions that I add a monogram to the the wine bag. That’s a good idea and I hope after I get some more bags made that I can make a few with monograms But for now I wanted something seasonal. Burlap and Halloween just go hand in hand don’t you think? Thanks for all your great ideas!
