How to Stencil DIY Bachelorette Party Favor Bags with Personalized Names
OK, so I didn’t technically go to a Bachelorette party, rather a fun annual girls weekend that my four best friends and I try to do once a year (it doesn’t always work out with over a dozen kids among us!). The year that I made these was special because it’s the first year in five years that all five of us will be going on a weekend getaway. I wanted to do something special so I decided to make personalized stenciled swag bags, which would also make a great DIY Bachelorette party favor bags.
Here’s what you’ll need:
If there was a Queen of natural fiber stenciling, I think I’d be in the running! Ha! I have done so many stenciling projects because it’s both fun and simple to do. I was able to stencil these five bags in no time. Here is one of the bags I got from BurlapFabric.com. They are great because they are sturdy and lined inside. The 9X11X4 size was perfect for these party favor bags.
First I chose a paint color for each of my best girlfriends. Naturally, I chose their favorites. Several different colors look vibrant and pretty against a natural fiber like these jute tote bags.
I stenciled our names on each bag in each of my friend’s favorite colors. Since I wanted our names to go up and down from the top right of each bag, it helped to start stenciling with the last letter first.
- Use a spouncer to help prevent bleeding.
- Apply in a straight up and down motion.
- Remove the excess paint before stenciling.
- Wash your stencils in between each application so that your stencils will stay clean and last a long time.
- Less in more. In the picture below you will see that I used very little paint for each name.
Here’s how they turned out! The girls are going to love them.
