Stencil Tutorial: Stencil Designs Can Recreate Floral Wallpaper
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends. Flower wallpaper is super trendy right now but it’s expensive and a hassle to install. Don’t worry, we have the perfect DIY solution so you don’t have to toss your floral fantasies aside. Our wall patterns make achieving a wallpaper look easy and affordable. Today we’re sharing how simple it is to give an accent wall a floral wallpaper look using our Japanese Peonies Allover Stencil. Come take a look.
We’d like you to welcome back Greg, one of the Cutting Edge Stencils owners and a creative DIYer. Greg loves to stencil and had a white wall that needed a dose of personality. Rather than put up floral wallpaper, which can be a hassle to install and very expensive, he decided to paint a pretty pattern using a Japanese Peonies wall design.
For our visual fans, you’re going to love this stencil tutorial that Greg put together. In this short video, he shows fans how easy it is to stencil an accent wall using a Japanese Peonies wallpaper stencil.
Let’s walk through the steps for completing this project. Greg started with a freshly painted white wall. He decided to use our flower wall pattern, the Japanese Peonies Allover Stencil, to create a beautiful accent wall.
With his floral pattern in hand he was ready for the fun part, stenciling! Greg carefully taped the stencil to the wall. He used the clip-on stencil level to ensure the pattern was even on the wall. He used a stencil brush to paint the peony flowers in a rosy pink.
Greg made sure he brushed off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed. He painted the leaf pattern in green using a dense foam roller.
Once the entire design was painted, he carefully removed the stencil from the wall to reveal the design.
Since the wall was not complete, Greg lined up the stencil using the interlocking pattern. Our stencil designs make overlapping the previously painted part easy.
After it was lined up and taped to the wall, he continued to paint the pretty floral pattern.
When the wall was complete, Greg stepped back to admire the wall pattern. Are you ready to see his newly stenciled accent wall? We thought so! Here is his accent wall featuring the Japanese Peonies Stencil.
We can’t get enough of this lush floral pattern. It certainly adds a beauty and grace to this white wall and it totally looks like wallpaper.

Really love the wall, could it be possible to just stencil the leaves without flowers? Just an idea. Still trying to decide how we want to paint our room which is good size with high ceiling .Has vinyl wall paper on walls now but takes paint with primer in it quite nicely.
This is a single wide mfg. home with vinyl wall paper on all walls which weren’t our choice, bought place 2nd.hand..Before we go crazy are getting several ideas what to do and how to do it. We’re in late 70’s so most likely will be one time project for us so want to be sure it’s what we really want. Had
idea to troll your site to get some good ideas.
Happy New Year
Troll away! We are loaded with ideas!
You could potentially stencil the leaves and leave the flowers out, but you will have some empty space where they should be. You may have to go back in and fill in those gaps with a leaf from another part of the stencil. You can also stencil the flowers in a super neutral color so they are not that noticeable.
We also have our Vines stencil that may work better for you since there aren’t any flowers. You can find that stencil here: http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/vines-stencil-kathy-peterson.html
I hope this helps! Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! -Erika
