Weighing In On Vinyl or Reusable Stencils 

In this tutorial, I will teach you how to use both vinyl stencils (stencil vinyl) and reusable stencils (mylar or acetate).

If you’re not sure which one is best for you, keep reading, and I will compare them both for you!


– Stencil vinyl  – Acetate or Mylar – Cricut machine – Acrylic paint – Round sponge brushes

Choose a design for your stencil and upload it to Cricut Design Space.


 Scale the design to your preference. Then choose your material.

In my case, I chose acetate, but mylar works too. Cut the stencil with your Cricut machine.

Lift your stencil from your Cricut mat. Place your stencil onto the surface you are painting and tape down the edges with painter’s tape.
