.:Tutorial Tuesday - Stenciled Fabric Silverware:.



I shared this project originally last week over at Poppy Seed Projects! We just moved into a brand new house about a month ago, so this came along at the perfect time!

My dining room was really lacking, so I decided to make these fun dining room art pieces.



Here's what you need to create these:

- Brooklyn trim pieces (3)
- spray paint
- freezer paper
- fabric paint
- iron
- command strips/nails (for hanging pictures)

They fill up the wall perfectly, and I couldn't be happier with them! I started off with three Brooklyn trim pieces and some spray paint.

I took the trim pieces out to my garage and gave them a few good coats of spray paint.

While I let those dry, I got out some fabric that would match the decor of my dining room/kitchen area. This gray and white zebra print is a favorite of mine! I cut three rectangles to 11.5" x 14.5". The opening of the trim is 11"x14", so I made them a bit bigger to give me extra to work with when attaching them to the trim pieces.

I used my CAMEO digital cutter to cut out freezer paper in the shapes of a fork, spoon, and knife. Once they were cut out, I ironed them down to the fabric pieces with the shiny side down.

Next I used some fabric paint to stencil the shapes on to the fabric. Be sure to put some cardboard or something underneath for the bleed through of your paint!

Then I carefully peeled up the freezer paper to reveal my shapes beneath. Allow them to dry completely before heat sealing them with your iron.

I finished off the frames by using a staple gun to secure the pieces of fabric to the frames. Then I used some command strips to hang them up!


What do you think? 


I love the fun shape of the frames, and it was fun to use fabric that ties into my decor.


I think they finish off the room perfectly.
