Our Merry Christmas
craft stencil template is sure to dress things up for the holidays. Here comes Santa walking through town with his bag of goodies! Stencil
Santa in a typical red hue, or paint outside the box by choosing a more
unusual color-- it's your choice! Paint the town green or red, and have
Merry Christmas in a bold gold. Easy to paint on cards, canvas, place
mats or other small DIY items. You don't have to be an experienced
painter to get great results. Make the holiday even more festive by
having a stenciling party and making your own greeting cards. Fun for
the family and friends!
The medium-sized stencil
is great for holiday home decor, and can be used on walls, furniture,
fabric, and many other surfaces! Perfect for DIY home decor! 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
All of our stencils

years of professional stenciling, this material has proven to be far
superior than any other material we have used, including the industry

bought our stencils.
