I’m inspired right now as I’m packing for our upcoming trip to the lake. There’s something so relaxing about being at the lake. I love typographical-inspired artwork, and I also love changing up my wall art. These DIY lake-inspired stencil prints are a breeze to make and you only need a few supplies.

Instructions:

1. Cut your kraft paper to desired size.

2. With a ruler, draw lines horizontally to line up stencils. I drew mine 3.5 inches apart.

3. Hold down stencil securely with fingers and dab paint over it with round sponge brush.

I made three 11 x 17 sized prints that are lake inspired. “Love Lake Life,” the simple “Go Fish,” and “Go Jump In The Lake.” I love how a trip tics looks on a big wall. And I love the little story you can tell with these prints. I played around with how to hang them. They looked cute when I hung them with washi tape. If you’re looking for something more permanent, use frames.
