I love keeping cozy in the cold! There is nothing more comforting than wearing your favorite cold weather gear while you’re out enjoying the season.
I used the stencil material and black fabric paint to add stars to the end of a shawl. Since the shawl was pretty wide I started stenciling on one side, cleaned the stencil up between uses, and kept moving it over until the whole edge was stenciled. If you’re looking for a design that is a little more forgiving choose something with a scattered sort of pattern. I loved using this star design since it didn’t have to be lined up perfectly to look nice.
Stenciling is a great way to personalize a plain shawl or scarf. It also works wonders at giving new life to an already loved piece.
Wrap it up and you have a unique semi-homemade gift. I added a gift tag that I decorated with sketch pens. This will make a great gift…if I can bare to part with it!
