You then add the stencil cream. I got mine at Michael's craft store. I bought the smallest bottle which should last a long time (I barely had to use any). You let it dry for about 5 minutes, then wash off the cream with water and towel dry.
Peel off the vinyl and remove all the little pieces and you have a great stencil.
This was hard to capture in the picture. It is not as strong as a stencil that you get from a professional place but it still looks really nice.

I was really happy with how this turned out. It was very easy and came out better then I expected. I definitely plan to do this again. I want to stencil all my husbands beer glasses with his favorite sports team. I also think these jars would make a great hostess gift. There are so many possibilities.
