We’；d like to introduce you to Kristen， the loving mama and amazing DIYer behind the blog Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.？ Kristen has an adorable little girl named Mila and while she’；s a cutie， her overwhelming abundance of toys in the living room is not so cute.？ She felt like the house was always a mess and she was constantly cleaning.？ In complete frustrationunique gifts for men， Kristen moved all of the nonsense into her daughter’；s room.？ Once it was all out of sight， she felt like Mila needed a nook in corner where she could play quietly.？ Kristen turned to Pinterest for ideas and quickly fell in love with the idea of a teepee reading nook.？ When she started to look into purchasing a teepee， she couldn’；t bring herself to spend $100 or more on such a simple item.？ Cutting Edge Stencils comes to the rescue!
Ah-dorable!？ Kristen used our Little Diamond Allover stencil pattern， paint， wooden dowels， and a pair of old black leggings to pull it all together.
We agree that it has to be one of the cutest DIY items we have ever seen.？ Let’；s talk about how she did it.？ First， she gathered up the materials to stencil which included the following：
Kristen found a flat surface， the floor， to stencil the sheet.？ Be sure to put something like a plastic tablecloth under the fabric to protect the floor.？？ Then she positioned the stencil design on the sheet and used painters tape to hold it in place.？ Kristen poured her craft paint onto a tupperware lid.
If you’；re recreating this project， you’；ll need to dip your stencil brush or sponge into the paint and blot off the excess paint onto your folded paper towel until the brush or sponge looks almost dry.？ The key to stenciling is to use as little paint as possible.？ Too much paint will cause the design to bleed and smudge.？ Next you will paint the design onto the fabric with the stencil brush or sponge.？ For this project， Kristen used black and mustard yellow acrylic craft paint.
Then she allowed the paint to dry a little and repositioned the stencil to continue the pattern.？？ Kristen randomly painted mustard-colored diamonds to add a splash of color.
Once the entire sheet was stenciled， she was ready to put together the teepee.
Kristen had this to say about her stencil project， “；Our own custom fabric that we did ourselves. Way cheaper and more personal than buying fabric at the store. And this little nugget of mine is thrilled with her new room!”；？ We can totally see why.？ This space looks awesome!
