Add to your holiday fun by stenciling this charming Christmas Ornaments
design on a piece of pre-stretched canvas. Any smaller DIY projects, like place
mats or napkins, are easy to do with craft stencils. This traditional
design can be painted in your choice of colors. Stenciling your personal
greeting cards, pieces of art, or a tablecloth is a way to make Christmas even more special.
This medium-sized stencil
design is great for holiday home decor, and can be used on walls, furniture,
fabric, and many other surfaces! Perfect for DIY home decor! Have
friends over for a Christmas stenciling party. No experience necessary, and it's very satisfying to create beauty.
Yes, you can stencil your own fabric
and use it for curtains,
tablecloths, pillows, and what not! When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive
is very helpful. First, tape your ironed fabric to the surface so it
move around while you stencil. Use stencil brushes, or a dense foam roller
, and add
some textile medium ( sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You
can also get a special fabric paint, but, good craft acrylics
with a dollop of textile medium work just as well, and cost way less,
too! :) Want to learn the easiest stenciling technique?
Here are the detailed illustrated Basic Stenciling Instructions.
You'll need some stencil brushes
and/or a dense foam roller
for your stenciling project.
Textile medium is optional - it only makes the acrylic paint
more flexible when it dries, which is important for wearables like
t-shirts, but not so much for pillows and curtains. Complete the
stenciling and let it dry fully (24 hours is best), then
heat-set it by ironing the fabric for approximately 20 sec. on
a LOW setting through the piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the
paint and will prevent it from being washed off in the washing machine.
Always experiment with a sample of your fabric first to ensure good
results. I've stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics
with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too
