Folk Art Stenciled Night Doll House

Today I have a really fun project to show you using FolkArt stencils.

After painting, stenciling, glittering, gluing and doodling, I finally had a finished product and couldn’t be happier with:

My favorite saying on the stencil that I recieved was this sweet little phrase, “There is no place like home”. Something I always want my daughter to remember! This was my very first time using a stencil and I had a few problems with the stencil before I could get it just right, but I finally figured it out and just LOVE how it turned out.

So let’s talk about the steps to create the perfect Night Doll House.

First, I put a base layer down of paint. (I used white) The paint that Plaid sent was awesome to work with. It is super thick so you don’t have to do layer after layer, which saved so much time!

Second, I stenciled the letters. For me, after practicing and practicing, I decided because the lettering was so small, (and I am kind of a perfectionist), I used a pencil to outline the letters and then went back with a paint brush to go over the letters.

Third, I used buttons and glitter to adorn the roof of the house, and lastly, I added paint and sharpie marker and doodled until I felt the house was just right!

All together, it was a really fun project to do using a new technique (stenciling)to me..I know, where have I been, right?!


And the best part? My daughter no longer has toys all over her bed at night!

    Potential dumb question: How is the dollhouse holding the night toys? Is it a backless dollhouse? Does the top come off? How big is it? It’s adorable by the way!
