Stencils can be used to decorate your walls, furniture or even clothing! Here’s a quick guide on how to use them.
How do you do it? Print the stencil designs out on regular paper so the designs can be transferred to card stock, laminated, or printed on plastic or another material thicker than regular printer paper.
Cut out the dark areas, then use paint with one of the tools below to fill in the spaces and transfer the pattern to your desired surface.
You might apply the paint, ink or dye with one of the following:
- stencil brush (a specific type of wide, blunt-ended brush used to dab paint)
- aerosol spray paint can
- sponge or rag/cloth
