How to Stencil on Glass for Christmas

I couldn't wait to try this new stencil and when it came I used it right away.  This beautiful Norwegian sweater pattern is great for any number of things but today I'm stenciling on glass.

I began with an old frame with glass.

I painted the frame white with Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement then distressed it with a sandpaper block.

Next, using Old Sign Stencils Sweater Pattern stencil, I stenciled on the glass first with Mod Podge

The first coat of Mod Podge not only keeps the paint from leaking under the stencil but it helps the paint adhere to the glass. 
Once the Mod Podge was dry, I used the same white paint I used on the frame to stencil the design. 
Fusion Mineral Paint is great on all surfaces, even glass!

Once the paint was dry, this part was finished.

Now I needed a background for my glass so I searched through my books of scrapbook paper and found a dark red with a cable sweater design. 
I cut the paper the size of the glass and backed my stenciled glass design in the frame. 
I attached a red and white rope to the top for hanging.

This project is so easy, honestly the hardest part was photographing the glass without getting my reflection in the glass! 
I added a metal tag on the frame for interest.
