Masking or painters tape
Use your ruler to measure an 8x10 piece of burlap scrapbook paper. Use scissors to cut out the piece.
Center your stencil onto the burlap and attach it with masking or painter's tape.
Use white acrylic paint and a paintbrush to fill in the stencil. I like to start in the center of the stencil area and apply paint and "mash" it into the burlap so that it coats the entire burlap texture. I use a little less paint on the edge of the stencil and the burlap so that it does not bleed under the stencil.
Continue until you have the entire stencil area painted.
Remove the stencil and let dry completely before putting it into a frame. You can place your bird behind the glass or in front of it. Either way looks great.
Wash your stencil with warm soap and water. And set aside to dry and use again!
