Here's How
Simply trace, paintDownload template, and hang!
  • Enlarge the dog stencils to fit your board. Cut out the silhouette shapes.
  • Paint your board a desired background colour using the roller kit.
  • Using a pencil, trace the two dogs in the background, then trace the three dogs in the foreground. The foreground dogs will overlap the background dogs.
  • Remove the parts of the background dogs that overlap with a damp cloth. This will make it less confusing to paint.
  • Using craft paint brushes, paint the foreground dogs first. Let dry.
  • Paint the background dogs. Let dry.
  • Paint the noses. Note: they are positioned towards the bottom of the ears.
  • Paint the collars.
  • Frame and hang to enjoy!
