My most recent home project involved a pretty time consuming floor stencilling project. However, to be honest, the most difficult part of the whole process was finding the stencil that matched the image that I had pictured in my head. After a couple weeks of shopping around for the perfect stencil, I decided that making one myself might be the way to go. So I figure why not share the project because it's a super easy DIY if you're thinking about painting your floors, and the results are stunning!
What you'll need:
(I used a self laminating plastic sheet that I had on hand from a previous project) <<Scotch Self Laminating Pouches>>
Colour in all the areas that will be cut out.
Carefully cut out all the coloured in areas.
Tape the stencil in place so that it doesn't slide around during painting.
Tips & Tricks:
-Every couple of lines, you will need to clean off your stencil. Paint will build up around the edges and will cause paint to bleed underneath. Once you see significant bleeding, it's time to clean it off and start fresh.
-Less is more. Don't soak your roller in paint, Not only will you have to clean off your stencil more often, but the more paint you use, the more it will bleed under the stencil.
-I used a hole puncher for the part of the stencil that requires little circles to be cut out.
I chose to paint my squares 8"x8" but you could definitely print the stencil to your desired size!! #urbanfizzdesigns if you try it out, I would LOVE to see your results!! Happy stencilling!!!
