I had an idea about making fun sayings to stencil onto log seats, so that people could have a good laugh before sitting down around the campfire. I wrote out a few phrases that I thought might be fun to see on the logs, and then made the phrases into stencils using my Cricut machine. I gathered some wood logs from our wood burning pile to jazz up a bit with my new stencils. In this post I’ll be sharing How to Make Fun Log Seats using Stencils.
First I sanded the tops of the logs a little with 120 grit just to smooth out any burs. Then I stenciled the 5 different campfire log seat phrases onto the stumps I had gathered. I tried using black paint first, but it was too dark, so I had to stencil over the stumps again with white paint. Lastly, I applied 4 liberal coats of polyurethane on the tops of the logs to protect their new painted surface.

Here are the different phrases I thought to stencil on the campfire log seats; they’re available as Free JPEG Files here in case you want to cut the stencils using your Cricut or Silhouette, instructions for how to use the files to make stencils with the Cricut are here with a collection of stencil files. For personal use only please. I’ll also put them at the end of this post.
What do you think of stenciling or painting fun sayings on campfire log seats? I think it would be something for friends and family to chuckle at before they sit down to enjoy hot cocoa, s’mores, and stories around the fire this fall.
