Amy Anderson with Mod Podge Rocks! created some wonderful new adhesive stencils for Plaid. Fortunately, I happen to know Amy, and being friends with a blogging celebrity gets me all kinds of perks. Now if I can just introduce myself to Tom Selleck, all would be good with the world!
Anyway, Amy asked me to create a project using her stencils. So, I created a great kids craft project using Amy’s stencils, popsicle sticks and Mod Podge! How about a Stenciled Popsicle Stick Desk Set? A perfect teacher gift, or Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift!
Okay, you can quit laughing at the my big hair and my husband’s mullet! This happens to be one of my favorite photos, even if it is 20 years old! And what better way to show it off than in a Stenciled Popsicle Stick Desk Set! Really!

For this project I used:
Mod Podge Rocks! Stencils in Starlite
Jumbo Wood Craft Sticks (about 3 dozen)
Glitter in Gold, Blue and Purple
Photo (doesn’t have to have big hair and a mullet)
I left the backing attached to my stencil for easier maneuvering. Simply lift up the stencil and line up the craft stick so that a row of pattern is centered on the stick.
Smooth the stencil down over top of the stick, adhering it.
Work quickly when spouncing Mod Podge on the stencils – Mod Podge has a reduced dry time, so you’ll may need to go over some areas a few times.
Sprinkle the glitter generously onto the stencil, and then tap off the extra into a container (waste not, want not, right?)
Carefully peel back the stencil to discover your awesome sparkly design! You can touch up any areas that you missed with a tiny paintbrush and Mod Podge/glitter.
Plaid recommends that you wash the spouncers and stencils immediately after using so that you can use them again and again.
Repeat this process until you have roughly 3 dozen crafts sticks completed and sparkly. Twelve in each color.
