Americana® Acrylics

  • Carousel Pink (DA274)

Other supplies

  • palette or plastic plate
  • paper towels
  • scissors
  • Contac® paper
  • Sharpie® marker
  • X-Acto® knife
  • cosmetic sponge
  • small burlap tote
  • circular household object (bowl or dinner plate)


NOTE: Allow to dry between steps.

  1. Print off the monogram on a computer in your favorite font or draw by hand.
  2. Use scissors to cut out a piece of Contac® paper out that is bigger than your design.
  3. Use a marker to trace the pattern onto Contac® paper.
  4. Use an X-Acto® knife to cut out the design.
  5. Use household objects (like an old bowl or dinner plate) to make a circle and just dot with a marker to lightly outline. (You do not need to make heavy marks.)
  6. Use the 3/4” flat brush to paint the entire circle Carousel Pink. Rinse the brush; let tote dry completely.
  7. Position the letter stencil from step 4 onto the tote where you would like it, remove the backing paper, and firmly press down the Contac® paper.
  8. Dip a cosmetic sponge into Snow White. Dab off the excess paint before putting on bag. Use light coats to dab all over the letters.
