In this post I’ll be sharing How to Make Fun Log Seats using Stencils.
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.
Using stencils to make logs into fun seats to sit on
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 phrase stencils I had cut with my Cricut.
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 SVG & JPEG File Bundles in my Resource Library.
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.
