This flower stencil is so easy to use
anyone can do it.
Simply tape it to the wall using BLUE
painter's tape, then load your foam roller
with the paint of your choice

you might get some bleed. Transform your room in less than 1 hour!

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

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.
