How To Make It
  • 1

    Print out the templates. You may need to resize them to fit your toy bins. Use a craft knife or precision craft scissors to cut out the silhouette stencils.

  • 2

    Lay the cut out templates onto your fabric toy bin. The London skyline with both PDFs taped together may be too long. That's okay! Just make sure you get the clock tower on there and let the extra skyline hang over the edge. Use painter's tape or masking tape to secure the paper to the fabric bins.

    For small pieces that can't be taped down (the teardrop shaped piece between the boots and the piece under Mary's arm that is holding her carpet bag), use a glue stick and dab a few spots on the back of the paper. Lightly stick the pieces down. You may want to dab a bit of glue in a few other spots.

  • 4

    Use a foam pouncer brush and apply the acrylic paint. To ensure a clean edge, make sure you pounce straight up and down. Do not brush on the paint.

    When the paint is dry, remove the stencils and tape. Then snap your fingers and the kids' bedroom will tidy itself!

Cutting should be done by an adult.
