INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the entire tray with two coats of Cotton Ball. Allow the paint to dry completely between coats.
  2. Cut out the provided rectangle pattern. Place in the center of the tray and trace.
  3. Apply painter's tape along the inside edges of the rectangle.
  4. Place the Americana Decor Ikat Polka Dot Stencil onto the center of the tray. ( If it is too large for the tray, trim the excess edges to fit.) If needed, use painter's tape to keep the stencil in place. Use a stencil brush to apply Pumpkin Patch and Eggplant (or the desired team colors). Be sure not to stencil inside of the taped-off area. While the paint is still wet, remove the stencil.
  5. Remove the painter's tape from inside the rectangle. Use the Americana Stencils 3" Simple Script Alphabet Stencil to paint the letters "L", "V", and "E" within the rectangle using a stencil brush and Coffee Bean. (See final photo for placement.)
  6. Use the handle end of a #3 round brush to paint tiny Eggplant dots around the outer edges of the rectangle and the tray. Use the #3 round brush to paint the inside edge of the tray in Pumpkin Patch.
  7. Cut out the football shape. Position on a diagonal where "O" would be placed. Use a pencil to outline. Apply Coffee Bean with a #6 flat brush to the football area. Let dry. Once dry, free-hand the stitching in Cotton Ball and a #3 round brush.
