The easiest way to do it is to take it into Photoshop, change it to black and up the contrast lots. Then use the cutout filter. There are a few things you have to look out for, particularly 'islands'. Islands refers to a blocked out section of the stencil that isn't connected to the side. Add in little bits so nothing gets left out and such. Here's another way to do it:
Also, spray adhesive is a huge help. It goes on like post-it glue, helps a ton in not getting your hands covered in paint.
That's the main points anyway. There are loads of stencil guides online, just google it.
