2 Pink Flamingo Projects Plus Promised Stencil Giveaway

Hey guys! Today I have a video showing exactly how I stencil. It’s awesome. Well, I’m not sure about that but at least I didn’t erase the video before you could see it like I did last week. This post includes two pink flamingo projects and that promised stencil giveaway. And the giveaway includes paint and stencil brushes!

The giveaway is my gift to you on my birthday which is today! I’m spending the day with my two lovely granddaughters. That’s an awesome gift. Now on to the two projects and the giveaway……

The 2 pink flamingo projects are a brown Kraft bag and a onesie. Both are gifts for a friend who has a new beautiful baby girl. If she reads this post she will see her gift before I get it in the mail. Maybe she won’t know the gift is for her. I can always hope. Seeing the gifts in a photo isn’t the same as seeing them in person anyway.

Stenciled Flamingo Gift Plus Stencil and Paint Giveaway from Petticoat Junktion

I enjoy stenciling more every day. The pretty designs make me smile.

This is the flamingo stencil I used on the pink flamingo junk sign.

acrylic paint selection from Apple Barrel

I selected a variety of paint colors from Apple Barrel for the project. The acrylic paints are multi-surface so they work on just about everything.

stenciling pink flamingos

I combine and mix colors as I stencil. This technique adds depth and makes the painted designs dimensional instead of flat.

See how pretty the multiple colors made this design! I try to tell you guys and show you in photos how to stencil with a dry brush and multiple colors but I think the video will show the process a lot better. Just click the video below then take a look at the onesie I decorated and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway.

For the sweet baby gift I started with a nice white onesie.

I stenciled one flamingo a little off centered on the left front of the onesie.

And for a laugh I stenciled the ocean ripples on the butt! I can’t resist adding a little surprise here and there.

I hope my friend likes her gifts.

You can use this stencil and paints on just about anything. I might do a pink flamingo chest of drawers using the flamingo stencil in a repeating pattern all over the piece. What do you think of that idea?

  1. Happy Birthday Kathy! Love the flamingos on the onesie. It turned out really cute! I love the idea of stenciling flamingos all over a chest of drawers. I would paint the chest of drawers white first though! The flamingos would really pop then. Sounds really perfect for a Florida home and reminds me of the beach. If you do it, please take lots of pics & show us!

  2. my neighbor kid bd is next month and she still were onsie and i like to do some thing for her

  3. I hope you had a great birthday! The flamingo stencil is so cute. I just adore that sweet stenciled onesie.

  4. Ohh, I want these!!! My husband is making my daughter a bookshelf for our home-school stuff for first grade. How cute would it be with flamingos!!

  5. I love these flamingos, they’re soooo cute!!!! Happy Belated birthday, I’ve not been on my phone much because I’m painting our master bedroom, and under a time crunch before we go out of town. Anyway, I hope you had a great time with your granddaughters!!! What a blessing!!!! I entered the raffle-I LOVE the stencil, can’t find one at any of the stores near me.

  6. I have a small flamingo collection that I try to limit to the bathroom which often has pink and aqua towels. Love those birds. Your projects and tutorial were great; thank you.

  7. Love the stencil! I’d make something for my sister who lives in Florida.

  8. We actually removed the bathroom door. Like you, there are just the two of us. We direct guests to the other. If we have overnight guests, we put the door back on. We rarely have overnight guests, so it works for us!

  9. Yes! I want to stencil a white t-shirt for me! I think a purse or beach bag is a great idea!

  10. P.S . I forgot to say that I think the flamingos would look good on a canvas summer purse or a beach bag, too. What do you think?

  11. Kathy, I hope you had a wonderful birthday! And, you know, you can keep celebrating the rest of the month because this is your “birthmonth”!

    The flamingos are really cute, especially the one on the onesie. And the giveaway is awesome! I really want all that paint!

  12. My husband thinks I ask too many questions too but how else do you learn??

  13. Interesting. I just like knowing how things work. My husband thinks I ask too many questions. The cupcakes sound great! Have a super evening with your loving-ones!

  14. Hey Patty, That’s a good question. Usually you are logged in by email somehow (google know everything) on any device you are on. The rafflecopter picks up your name and email address that way. If you are not logged in then the rafflecopter asks you to log in before you can enter. Anyone who clicks the enter button is entered and Rafflecopter has the info. Thank you for the birthday wishes. No cake but the JTS and Sofi bought me cupcakes…vanilla and chocolate. They were yummy.

  15. Happy Birthday and thank you so much for giving us such wonderful projects!

  16. Happy Birthday!
    I stenciled anything I could get my hands on in the 80’s … walls and stair risers and chairs and more walls and more furniture! Now, just some furniture. And I love flamingos!!

  17. Hey! Happy Happy Birthday! Hope you get all you wish for AND your favorite cake!! This is a lovely giveaway, Kathy, thank you for giving us the chance to win it. I have a friend who’s a Fanatic for Flamingos and I would love to make her all kinds of goodies with this group of supplies. I need the paint! I need the brushes! I have a question, if you can answer it…I’m not all that hip on how the rafflecopters work….I wonder, when we just click on the button to enter….how do you know who it is ? We don’t put in a name, or an email, or a comment. I’m just curious. Thank you!

  18. Happy 20th birthday! Hope you You a craftastic day! Awesome giveaway! TFS!

  19. Happy Birthday, Kathy! Hope you have a fabulous day with your granddaughters ♥ Adorable onesie – love the ripples on the butt!

  20. Happy Birthday!!!!!! These stenciled flamingos are awesome!!! I love how you layer the paint colors for more dimension!!!!! Thank you for the opportunity to enter!

  21. Congratulations on another successful journey around the sun! Wishing you many blessings in the coming year.
    Thanks for the video… love those flamingos!!

  22. Happy birthday. Enjoy time with your granddaughters. My granddaughter and I are about to try stenciling one wall in my bedroom. She is 19 and is an artist so I’m trusting her completely.

  23. Wishing you a Very Happy Birthday. My sister and I were talking about Flamingo stencils last week when I wanted one to put on a small table. You read my mind.

  24. I did allot of stenciling back in the ’80’s, then it seemed to become a fading fad and I had difficulty finding stencils anymore, for years. I have noticed that stores are carrying more stencils now and that they are plentiful on the internet too, although can be quite pricey. I am embracing stenciling again, it’s fun and so easy. Your project is really cute, Happy Birthday to you and enjoy your day!

  25. Happy Birthday to you!! What a great way to spend your birthday.
    I know your friend will adore the gifts.
    I like the idea of stenciling the flamingo all over a dresser. OOOooo what if it was a changing table for the same friend?? 🙂

  26. Happy Birthday- loved the project–Now on to the best day ever with your girls. And when it comes to cake remember more is more!

  27. I love stencils too, but only sometimes! I have a lovely stenciled design of swimming mackerel on my bathroom door, with little bits of gold leaf on the fish for the “glitter” that you see under the water. 15 years later, and I am not going to paint over it anytime soon. The door is propped open most of the time because there are only two of us in the house but we remove the pebble that holds the door open when we have visitors so that they have complete privacy…. and that’s when you get to see the design.

    Loved that little flamingo onesy!
