Butterfly Stencil Template


Before we get started, I wanted to let you know about all the supplies I’m using in this butterfly craft:

Steps to Create this Butterfly Stencil Craft

Let me tell you about the crafting experience I had that resulted in a beautiful butterfly painting! Here are the steps I took:

Step 1: The Butterfly Body Color

First, I painted the butterfly shaped wood cutout with a white paint to give me a background. Then, I used some green, orange, and grey paint to give its body some color. I blended the colors together to create a gradient effect that really made the butterfly pop.

Step 2: The Canvas Texture

While that was drying, I used a piece of ripped cardboard to add some brown streaks to the canvas. I dipped the cardboard in brown paint to create a textured, birch wood look on the canvas. It was looking good!

Step 3: The Butterfly Stencil Template

Next, I went back to the butterfly wood cutout and applied the butterfly stencil. Using some Black chalk couture paste, I painted in the black areas of the butterfly to create contrast and give it some depth.

Step 4: Glue the Butterfly Wood Cutout to the Canvas

After all that was done and both the butterfly and the canvas were completely dry, I glued the painted butterfly wood cutout onto the canvas using my favorite hot glue gun. It was like the butterfly had just landed on that birch wood canvas!

I gotta say, y’all, this was one of the most fun crafting experiences! Using a butterfly stencil and butterfly shaped wood cutout, along with some paint and ripped cardboard, allowed me to create a beautiful and unique piece of art.
