DIY Stencil Ideas: Stripe and Border Stencils
Candy canes, teddy bears, snow flakes, and jingle bells: what do they all have in common? Why, they help us spread holiday cheer of course! Cutting Edge Stencils wants to be included in the joy you feel while decorating your home during the holiday season, so make a little room for us! Whether you stencil inside your pantry, around your fireplace, on the rug, or in the bathroom, I can guarantee that your home won’t be ready for holiday guests until you use our painting stencils to spruce up the place! How’s about another stencil idea to inspire your creativity then!?
Today, let’s talk about a hidden gem category on our website. Say it with me now, “Border and Strip Stencils!” These gorgeous stencils are often overlooked, but are some of our most beautiful and versatile stencils that we offer! A combination of flowers and classical designs, these stencils speak volumes of your home decorating skills, and of our designing abilities (toot, tooting our own horn)!
This stripe stencil will instantly add elegance and sophistication to your walls, totally impressing your more formal dinner guests! Doesn’t it look just brilliant in gold?! We definitely suggest making a statement by painting this stencil with metallic paint in the room of your choice! Planning to devour a family feast in the dining room for Christmas dinner? Class up the place by painting this design horizontally along the center of the wall or along the chair rail! Take a different approach: paint this pattern as vertical stripes in the bathroom or guest room to easily fill up the wall space which will be sure to radiate cultivated beauty during the holiday season and beyond! Stenciling this design as an allover stripe pattern will give you the look of wallpaper without having to deal with the mess or price!
The Virginia Creeper Border is such a gorgeous wall stencil that is both romantic and refreshing! These inviting, connecting vines can be painted (or should we say planted) in so many creative ways in differing rooms around your home. They almost remind us of poinsettias, but maybe we just have holiday cheer on the brain! We really can’t decide whether this painting stencil looks better as a horizontal border, vertical stripes, or an overlapping design on a feature wall! Unlike the Virginia Creeper Vine Stencil, the Virginia Creeper Border has registration marks so that you may use the stencil as an allover pattern, connecting throughout your living room, kitchen, or bedroom!
Wildflowers are stunning and whimsical, especially when paired up with some free flying butterflies! We adore this wall stencil for its unique and versatile qualities, and we know you will too once you see it as the focal point of your decorative walls! Like all the other border and stripe stencils, the wildflowers can be used as vertical or horizontal stripes, a glamorous border, or to adorn an accent wall! These stencils have registration marks as well, and can be use reused as many times as you like (unlike wallpaper and decals)! Paint this border stencil to match your home decor perfectly by picking up the colors of your pillows and curtains! You can even get a little artsy and paint the vines, the blooms, and the butterflies in three different colors!
