I love this creative idea for creating depth and dimension on your walls by using joint compound to stencil over at Creative Jewish Mom. A chunky stencil would be a really cool way to dress up more than just your walls, too. I can see it as an interesting addition to a piece of wooden furniture (chest of drawers, coffee table, storage chest?), or even on a vase. Joint compound can also be tinted to create a custom look.

Project Estimate:

  • Joint compound, $3.89
  • Putty knife, $1
  • Stencil, on hand or $1

Total: $4.89
