More things you can stencil!

We’ve told you about some of the amazing uses for stencils, from kitchen backsplashes and elaborate wallpaper designs, to floor stencils and quirky ceiling stencils... but there’s even more!
Our stencils can be used not only on surfaces like walls, ceiling and floors, but they are great on furniture, which you can read all about in our blog: Our Top Tips for Stencilling your Furniture, but what else can you decorate and enhance with a stencil?

Soft Furnishings!!

Do you have old pillows and cushion, bedspreads, table linen and blankets that are a bit old, dated or lack lustre? Well instead of forking out a fortune for new, exciting items, why not enhance your own! Stencils can give items a really lease of life! From polka dots, to flowers, chic chevron patterns, to butterflies, there’s a pattern to sit everyone’s tastes and styles!
If there’s nothing wrong with your items other than a lack of style, there is absolutely no need to replace them! By stencilling onto these fabrics you are not only saving yourself money- but you can also have fun with it! We can’t think of a batter was to spend a Sunday afternoon...


This is a really great way to make your clothes unique and personal to you. There’s nothing worse than turning up to a party wearing the same outfit as someone else, but if you personalise your clothes with stencils you’ll never have to worry about this happening to you again! Particularly great if you have young children, you can stencil onto almost any item on clothing! We’re sure a little girl would love to spend the day decorating her clothes with some pretty flowers and hearts. Or maybe you little boy in dinosaur or car obsessed? A cheap and economical way to make their clothes more exciting and a great way to keep them entertained for a day – what’s not to love?


A fabulously bright and vivid lamp or light shade is such a great way to give a room a facelift! You can grab a plain coloured lampshade on the high street and still get change from a fiver these days. So why not grab yourself one and jazz it up with your own personalised stencil design! As we said, this is a wonderful, cheap and easy, and FUN way to brighten up your home!
