At A Makers’ Studio, we believe in creating DIY projects that use tools and accessories you can use over and over again, which is why we love stencils and stamps. Stencils and stamps are some of the most enjoyable — and easiest — ways to create DIY décor for your home or to make beautiful, handmade gifts. Because we can’t get enough of our fun alphabet stencils and bee stamps, we put together this adorable wall art project just for you!

Step 1: How to Make Your Own Wall Art in Under 40 Minutes!
Everything you need to make your own wall art!
Step 2: Paint the Surface.
Paint the entire inside surface in Blessed Rescue Restore Paint with your foam brush. Make sure to cover the surface thoroughly and allow to dry thoroughly before applying a second coat.
Step 3: Spread the ChalkArt.
Once your paint is fully dried, use the ChalkArt™ Spreader to cover the sides and frame of your surface with Preaching to the Choir ChalkArt™.
Step 4: Apply ChalkArt to the Alphabet Stencil.
Lay down the Alphabet 4 Stencil inside the surface and make sure it doesn’t move. Then, with the ChalkArt™ Spreader, use Preaching to the Choir ChalkArt™ to stencil the letters onto the surface. Remove the stencil carefully and make sure to wash it in warm, soapy water.
Wait for the surface’s stenciled letters to dry thoroughly. This can take up to 15 minutes.
Step 5: Apply ChalkArt to the Bee Stamp
Once the stenciled letters are dry, apply Preaching to the Choir ChalkArt™ paint to the Bee Stamp.
Step 6: Stamp Your Bee.
Carefully stamp the center of the surface, pressing down but not shifting weight. Remove the stamp carefully and then wash it with warm, soapy water.
Dry the Bee Stamp after washing, and let the stamped paint on your surface dry. This can take up to 15 minutes.
Step 7: Stamp With Gold Metallic ChalkArt.
Repeat the previous step, but this time using the Gold Metallic ChalkArt™ on your Bee Stamp. Apply a layer of the gold ChalkArt to the stamp and then lay it directly on top of the existing bee stamp. It will not line up perfectly, and that is okay! Press firmly and then remove the stamp gently. Wash the stamp again and let your painted surface dry.
