Our tile stencils are fabulous on walls, back splashes or in place of floor cement tiles.

You can create fabulously ornate, beautiful accent walls with this moroccan design.
This Tile stencil features an easy registration system,
use parts of the previously painted design to align and lock in the stencil, check
for level and continue. This gives
you a seamless "wallpaper" look. Don't worry about
super perfect alignment: in the end your eye will never ever notice the
While prior stenciling experience is a plus for wall stencil patterns, even beginners get great
This tile stencil is a "filler" type stencil, meaning you're filling in the openings in the stencil pattern as opposed to outlining it. Keep this in mind when choosing your base coat color - this will be the color of the "lines". Refer to Actual stencil picture (the last black and white picture) to see where the paint goes.
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.
Try this Moroccan design with our innovative Clip-on Stencil Level, (sold separately) and discover how easy it is to achieve perfectly level results without fumbling with a bulky bubble level each time you re-position your stencil. The Stencil level clips on to your stencil, and stays on it while you work, making leveling super easy! It's such a time-saver.

Although our wall stencils do not require the use of spray adhesive,
this crisp geometric stencil could benefit from it to help minimize paint seepage,
especially if your walls have a slight texture to them. (Elmer's spray
adhesive 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.
Please note that once you've used spray adhesive on your stencil, it
will never really come off completely. That is why we personally prefer
not to use adhesive, and instead use less paint on your roller or
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
Do you know you can stencil your own fabric
and use it for curtains,
tablecloths, pillows, etc.? When stenciling on fabric, please use
stencil adhesive to ensure good results. First, tape your ironed fabric
to the surface so it doesn't
move around while you stencil. You'll get better results with stencil
brushes, but sometimes roller can work too, depending on your fabric.
some textile medium ( sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You
can also get a specially formulated fabric paint, but, frankly, good
craft acrylic paint
with a dollop of textile medium mixed in works just as well, and costs
way less! :) Let the stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is best,
heat-set it by ironing the fabric for about 20-30 seconds 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. We have stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer
with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too
