Decorate a Bulletin Board with Glitter & templates

Learn how to decorate a Bulletin Board with glitter and stencils! This tutorial makes it easy to beautify a wall with each template design.
Crafting do not always mean that you have to build something from the ground up – at least to me. I like things from scratch, but sometimes I like to personalize simply accenting a piece to my home decor and tastes.
This is one of the great things about the new Mod conglomeration of rocks stencils . . . that is exactly what you can do! I bought a Board that already has a frame around it, but it needed a little something else.
So I added that “something different” with the skeleton key stencil and Mod-hodgepodge. Here’s how I did it.

Make sure your wall is clean and free of debris. Mine already had a frame, but you can Board any . . . also the tiles.
Decide where to go, to your design. – I put the keys in the two corners, with two directions.
Carefully pull smooth the stencil of the supporter and place down on the cork;. It’s really important that you pull the stencil slowly, to tear so that you don’t (this is true for any adhesive stencils!).
Optional: do not use stencil or painter's tape to tape off the border so that you can get, the Mod-smorgasbord in these areas.
Use the spouncers, Mod smorgasbord to be applied to the template. You have enough Mod-hodgepodge, so you’ve covered the areas in white, but don’t glop it. Work quickly so that the Mod-hodgepodge is dry.
Remove the stencil and sprinkle glitter on top of the Mod collection. I’m working so fast that the image is blurred. Ha!
Don’t waste glitter – I mean, I like to save mine! Dump the glitter on a piece of paper or a glitter tray (pour the remaining glitter back into the jar).
Repeat the process with the rest of the key-design – - - not to disturb careful with the designs you've done already. Depending on how much of the template you used, you need to wash may be to dry the template to use it again.
Allow the Mod-hodgepodge completely dry, also if you see extra glitter to the edges. THEN use the brush or a similar tool to remove the excess glitter from the surface – just with the brush. Maybe do it outside so that it doesn’t get in the dog’s face (personal experience).
Let your wall dry for 24 hours before use. Wash the stencil and immediately back to the supporters. What do you think? I like it better than before!
My friends at plaid who produced the templates, wrote a very helpful article to use on you. Check it out and then let me know what you think. Now you know how to decorate a wall, what would it be to you?
