Cutting Edge Tree Stencil & A Giveaway!

I was so excited to get my hands on the Large Tree and Birds Stencil from Cutting Edge. The original plan was for it to go in the girls room but the wall quickly filled up in there so I moved on to plan B. Sometimes I love plan B!

I used this white all-purpose home decor acrylic from DecoArt. It was perfect for the project.

And I love the mini foam roller that comes with the stencils! Again, perfect for the job!


I actually completed this tree in one naptime which was awesome! The large tree comes in 2 parts so I began by leveling and taping the bottom part of the tree. So easy.

Then the real fun began...the painting. I started rolling away and in no time the bottom part was done and I was taping up the top part. I have no pictures of this because I got way too excited and forgot! I get a little crazy during my projects! Ha.

I barely used any paint on my brush as the instructions note and it came out perfectly! I didn't even have any smudges! It was seriously so quick and easy.


Before I knew it, there was a perfect white tree on the wall in our "loft" area upstairs. I was so very excited about it and so proud that I did it without any assistance from my husband!


The large tree stencil comes with a separate bird stencil full of different birds. I found two that were perfect for what I wanted.

I stenciled them above and on either side of the tree. I had been looking for a place to hang some of my daughter's artwork! She has been taping her papers all over the house so this would be the perfect spot to showcase her special drawings.


A screw was placed right under the bird's feet to look like the bird was carrying the twine. I tied twine around each screw and hung up some of our favorite art and pictures of the kids with clothespins.


This is the area in the house where I do my blogging, crafting, and sewing. The tree gave this area just the right touch and makes it feel so cozy and peaceful. I love it and so do my kids!


Cutting Edge offers a large variety of awesome stencils for you to choose from and now is your chance to win one!

Look at what you could do with this cool Chandelier Stencil. How fun is that?


And you can make a beautiful design like this with the Parsley Blooms Wall Pattern Kit...


To enter this giveaway simply visit Cutting Edge and comment letting us know what your very favorite stencil is.

For an extra entry, you can "like" Lemon Tree Creations on facebook and comment letting us know.

The winner will be announced on Saturday.

I will be joining these parties this week! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday!

I have been daydreaming about all the stencils I could use in my house, much like I do when I get the new Pottery Barn catalog and daydream about all their awesome decor and how well they would look in my house! :) To name one stencil as my favorite is definitely hard...as I keep changing my mind. My favorite stencil right now is the large tree & birds stencil. It would look fabulous in my little girl's room. But ask me in 5 minutes which one is my favorite and it'll be a different one! Love them all! :)
