I have a really fun project to share with you today! Members of the StencilGirl Products and Walnut Hollow teams are teaming up for a fun blog hop, giving you tons of inspiration combining stencils with wood projects. I am joining in to show you how I decorated this cool bark edge tablet stand with two of my favorite StencilGirl stencils. Not only is there inspiration and tutorials, there are prizes too! Scroll all the way down to the bottom of my tutorial for details on how to enter!
