have you heard of freezer paper stencils? they are great fun. i have freezer paper stenciled t-shirts, onesies and bibs. recently i wanted to embellish my daughters lamp shade but i wasn't sure how. then i got the crazy idea to use freezer paper stencils on it. i painstakingly cut out the very detailed zinnia design. i layered three sheets so i only had to cut out the design once thankfully.
i have to be honest, i would probably not do this again. it was almost impossible to get the freezer paper to stick to my linen lamp shade and the end result was not as clean as you usually get with the freezer paper stencils. i also had to be really careful to not melt the plastic liner when ironing the stencil onto the shade.
see how smudged the flowers are? it drives me nuts!
but sutton ooohed and ahhhed over the lamp and it looks good from a distance so we'll keep it!
