Using Stencils for Home Decor


Sarah G on the Uniko blog today :)  I wanted to share some ways that I have been using my Uniko stencils on items around the house.  I do love these designs and it is fun to think of different ways of using them.

Firstly I used the gorgeous chrysanthemum stencil which I am sure is a favourite with many of you:

I bought a cheap plant pot and simply dabbed through the stencil with some bronze/copper acrylic paint.  I tend to find it easier to use repositionable adhesive spray on the back of stencils when I am using them like this as there is less tendency for the paint to bleed under the aperture and it stays put.

I also used the wonky stripes stencil on a vase:

I dabbed through the stencil with white acrylic paint.  I masked above and below the stencil to keep the stencilling crisp and was really pleased with how the stripes lined up around the vase to create a continuous design.

I hope this has given you some ideas on how you might use your Uniko stencils in unexpected ways :)

Thanks for stopping by,
