How can I make my own rooster stencils?
Find a rooster image, ensure that it is copyright-free. There are many stock photos online that you could find. Print or draw the image you want. You can even freehand draw the design onto paper.
Stencils are best if kept relatively simple with very clear lines. You can remove unnecessary shading or features.
Trace the design onto a good stencil material. This can be cardstock, craft plastic, or mylar.
I recommend tracing with a fine tip marker so that the sketch is easy to see for cutting.
Cut out the stencil precisely and carefully using an X-acto or craft cutter.
Be sure to test your stencil and then you should be ready to go!
