Irish Sigh using Transfer tape as stencil

Transfer tape is not just for vinyl!!!  You can use it to make stencils for painting.  I have a quick video showing you how to use the transfer tape as a stencil.  You will have to excuse the videographer though, my 8 year old really wanted to help, so its a little shaky!!  Below I will give you a quick step by step, including the products that I used to make this sign.

Materials Needed:

  • Wood sign – I got mine from Jo Anns but you can get one here as well:  http://amzn.to/2pojfWI
  • Transfer tape – This is what I use and I absolutely love it!!!:  http://amzn.to/2G9CUUL
  • Paint – I used green because it was a St Patty’s Day craft, but you could use any color.
  • Paintbrush
  • Silhouette Cameo – This is to actually make the stencil.  You can get one here:  http://amzn.to/2u104YG


  1. Create your design in the silhouette design software.
  2. Cut your transfer tape to the desired size and then use your Silhouette Cameo to cut out the design.
  3. Place your transfer tape onto your medium, mine was a plank sign.
  4. Paint over your stencil.
  5. Wait just a few minutes and then remove the stencil and you are done!  Watch the video below to see the steps in action.

Here is what your finished product might look like:
