I must say that stenciling is one of my favorite craft projects to do. It’s a fairly simple task, especially when you know a few tips or tricks. It is also very versatile in that you can use it for small and large projects, from place mats to furniture. Here are eight fun and easy ideas for stencils I’ve done in the past. All of which have complete step by step photo tutorials. I hope you try them out!
Stenciling with Burlap
This is a tutorial for stenciling a monogram on a lantern made from a recycled food jar. I still have this displayed in my living room today. It also makes a fun personalized handmade gift. Fill it with tea lights or candy and give it to Mom for Mother’s Day!
I made this initially as a prop for my daughter’s birthday party one year, but now it hangs in her room by her bed.
Also a great handmade Mother’s day gift idea, these stenciled burlap place mats are a hit every time I bring them out to use for my guests. Make a set of four to eight to give to Mom or Grandma. Consider using words that remind you of her!
This is one of my first DIY projects I posted on this blog. In hindsight I may have done it differently but you learn as you grow, right???
One of my more recent projects, stenciling TV trays gives them a little upcycled flair.
Other fun Stenciling Projects
I made these shirts with my best friend, Jenny for her daughter’s school spirit shirts. Check out the post and Jen shares how she made he own stencil!
I made this for Thanksgiving last year, but it’s a great tutorial for any type of banner or bunting you need for parties or holidays. Make a “Happy Mother’s Day” one for mom!
My thriftiness at its finest, I made this SUPER cheap wall art for my guest room!
I hope you try these projects! Feel free to share some of your ideas in the comments! Happy stenciling!
