Free Stencil! Single overlay stencil
Sheet: 9" x 40.7", Design: 5" x 37.75"

This Baby Elephant Border Stencil is an easy and fast way to add a touch of color and fun to your little one's nursery or a playroom. This stencil can be used at the ceiling line or at the belt line or even across the face of a dresser!

The stencil design really comes to life when done in multiple colors using stencil brushes. Easy pattern registration makes it a fun and rewarding DIY decorating project. This makes a perfect decorative treatment for any kids room or baby’s nursery. Make sure to use a separate stencil brush for each color and remember not to use too much paint on your brush! You can stencil with acrylic or latex paints. The best base coat for stenciling is regular flat latex house paint.

This stencil features an easy registration system, just use parts of the previously painted design to align the stencil, check for level and continue - this gives you a seamless look.

Want to learn the easiest stenciling technique? Here are the detailed illustrated Roller Stenciling Tips.

For more information on how to stencil with multiple colors, please check out our Stenciling Videos! You'll find them extremely helpful for your stenciling project. Even beginners get great results!

Try this stencil with our new Clip-On Stencil Level, (sold separately) and discover how easy it is to achieve perfectly level results without dealing with all those bulky heavy bubble levels and annoying laser levels.

Stenciling on rough or textured walls may contribute to increased paint bleed. For more information on stenciling on textured walls, see our F.A.Q. section.

About seepage and imperfections: Even with a proper loaded roller and correct technique you might get some minor paint seepage here and there. In most cases it's not noticeable, especially from a couple of feet away and it can be easily touched up with a small brush. Don't forget that you're creating a "hand-painted wall finish".  A few imperfections and some paint seepage here and there are natural and inevitable for this type of work. To avoid seepage, use spray adhesive and less paint on your roller and brush.

Although most of our stencils do not require the use of spray adhesive, it can be useful for beginners to help minimize paint seepage (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the best). Adhesive is especially useful if your walls have a texture to them. Make sure you shake the can well and lightly mist (not drench) the stencil, and let it dry for a moment before positioning it on the wall. This step will prevent the adhesive residue transferring to the wall. You'll need to re-mist the stencil after a few repeats. Note: you will still need to hold the stencil in place with a few pieces of blue painters tape! Adhesive by itself is not enough to hold the stencil on the wall. Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove adhesive residue. 
Please remember that it's usually not possible to remove all of the glue residue from the stencil.

Stencils are made out of durable 12 mil clear plastic stencil material. This material is strong but flexible, reusable and easy to clean. We love it so much more than standard 5-8 mil Mylar! It's not brittle, user friendly and just so easy to work with. In our many years of professional stenciling this material has proven to be far superior than any other stencil material we used. Our customers love it too, and we are sure that you'll notice the difference! Our stencils will last a long time and are a pleasure to use.
