DIY Glue Gun Stencils

USE SIMPLE, EVERYDAY TOOLS TO CREATE FUN, DIY STENCIL DESIGNS YOU CAN USE AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Write your name, create a fun shape, or even go for an abstract design. You can create your own customized stencils using a glue gun and some parchment paper — and then use a simple, everyday spray bottle to add extra paint and create fun designs.

This is a perfect project for any skill level, and it can be done in as little time as it takes the hot glue and paint to dry.

Once you have your stencil, you can use it to decorate notebook covers, stationery, wallpaper, and any other crafty surface. The possibilities are endless! For more fun projects, browse more craft classes on Skillshare or check out our round-up of some of the best ones!
