Decorative and Craft Stencils
Add a wide variety of designs to craft, paper, and furniture projects with decorative stencils. Explore craft stencils with letters, nature designs, patterns, and more.
Ensure the surface you’re stenciling is clean before applying the stenciled design. The type of paint you use with stencils depends on the surface you’re decorating, as well as the nature of the project. Generally, it’s best to use paint with a quick drying time. Paints with a slow drying time, such as oil-based paint, can mar the design.
Acrylic and latex paint fits dry more quickly than other types of paint, and they can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including wood and walls. Use fabric paint if you’re stenciling on textiles.
