Learn how to stencil on leather and vinyl with this easy DIY tutorial.
I found a super cute and inexpensive leather wallet at Walmart. I thought it was a little plain so I decided to add a dragonfly to it. Here is how I stenciled on leather and it works for vinyl too.
Here’s the super cute and inexpensive wallet I got from Walmart. It holds everything I need when I want to travel light. Here’s the link to my leather purse and it comes in a variety of colors.
I started by cleaning the leather surface with an rubbing alcohol prep pad. Once it was dry, I placed my adhesive stencil onto the leather. I used Folk Art adhesive Stencils.
I made sure to press the stencil firmly to get a tight seal from the stencil onto the leather to prevent as much paint bleeding as possible.
I used Folk Art Treasure Gold Blue Quartz paint. I lightly dipped the paintbrush into the paint, carefully removed as much paint as I could (to prevent bleeding under the stencil), and lightly brushed the paint onto the stencil and leather.
While the paint was still wet, I removed the stencil. I washed the stencil with soapy water, and put it back onto the original package backing so I could use it again another time.
If you make a mistake, you can rinse or wipe it off your item, and then try again. This has to be done while the paint is still wet.
I let the stencil dry completely and love how it turned out. Follow your paint instructions for dry times.
On the inside of the wallet I could have stenciled another spot on this pocket. I decided to add a breast cancer awareness ribbon sticker I got from Dollar Tree. It is in honor of my breast cancer journey.
