This Blooms and Ferns Border Stencil is an easy and fast way to add a touch of color and fun to your little one's nursery. This stencil can be used at the ceiling line or at the belt line or even across the face of a dresser!
It really comes to life when done in multiple colors using stencil brushes. The perfect decorative treatment for any baby’s nursery. Make sure to use a separate stencil brush for each color! You can stencil with acrylic or latex paints. The best base coat for stenciling is regular flat latex house paint. Perfect DIY nursery decorating project for beginners.
For more information on how to stencil with multiple colors, please check out our Stenciling Videos! You'll
find them very helpful for your stenciling project.
For alignment please refer to the
pics. Stencil aligns horizontally for a seamless effect by slightly overlapping and locking in with previously
painted parts. This stencil is easy to work with and even beginners get great results!

We recommend using our Clip-on Stencil Level,
(sold separately) with any repeating pattern stencil. Discover how easy it is to achieve perfectly level
results without dealing with those heavy bubble levels and
expensive laser levels. We cannot recommend the Level enough, it's a
real time-saver and is so handy!
Although this and most of our stencils
do not require the use of spray adhesive, if your walls have a texture to them, this
pattern could benefit from it to help minimize paint
seepage (Elmer's spray
seems to be the best). 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.
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.
The stencil is
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 in
quality to 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.
