What is a Stencil?

A stencil is a thin sheet of material with an artistic design or pattern cut out. To stencil a surface, the stencil template is placed on the surface and then paint is applied over the stencil pattern cutouts. When the stencil template is removed from the surface, the stenciled image remains. You can stencil on walls (think of wall stencils as DIY wallpaper stencils), stencil furniture, curtains, DIY home décor accents, DIY crafts and more. (Not to confuse you, but technically the stencil tool and the stenciled image are both called "Stencils".)

Stencil templates are a wonderful, affordable, DIY home painting tool. You don't have to be an artist to hand paint your child's room, just a stencil template, some paint and a bit of creativity.

Wall Stencils are Better than Wallpaper

Wall stencils are an affordable wallpaper alternative. Unlike wallpaper, wall stencils won't damage your walls or cost a fortune. Our wall art stencils are also reusable, so you can paint your walls with the same stencil pattern as many times as you like. You can stencil whimsical patterns on your nursery walls. Or paint the ABCs on your toddler's wall. Mural stencils make it easy to paint a mural in your baby's room. DIY wall painting is easy with wall stencils. And best of all, your stenciled walls will be unique, hand painted DIY home décor you stenciled yourself.

What is the Difference Between Wall Stencils and Wall Decals?

The difference between a wall decal and a wall stencil is that a wall decal is a large wall sticker while a wall stencil is a non-damaging wall painting template. There are several advantages of a wall stencil over a wall decal. For one thing, wall stencils last longer than wall decals. You also have more opportunities to personalize your home décor with a wall stencil than a wall decal. Because you are painting your walls with a wall stencil, you can choose the paint color(s) and the paint saturation you stencil with. A wall stenciled in bold colors will feel very different than a wall stenciled in subtle, neutral tones. Even if the same stencil template is used, each stenciled wall is unique.

What is the Best Stencil Material

Our home décor stencil templates are laser-cut from 10 mil Mylar material. 10 mil Mylar plastic is the best material to make home décor stencils. Mylar stencil templates are durable, flexible, easy to use and reusable. Mylar stencils will bend without breaking. You can bend Mylar stencils to stencil corners and edges and roll them up for storage without stretching the stencil design.

Another surprising advantage of 10 mil Mylar is its thinness. A mil is 1/1000th of an inch, so 10 mil is 10/1000th of an inch. For comparison, a business card is about 12 mil thick, so 10 mil Mylar is pretty thin. This is good for home décor stenciling. 10 mil Mylar is thick enough to provide a crisp stencil finish, but thin enough you won't have a paint "lip" after you remove the stencil. Or a stenciled design that is noticeably thicker than the surface you stenciled on. Our 10 mil Mylar stencils are of the highest quality, in a deceptively thin package.

Reusable Repeating Pattern Allover Wall Stencils

At Oak Lane Studio, our wall stencils are designed to make it easy to stencil repeating patterns all over your walls. You only need one wall stencil template to paint your entire room with your favorite stencil design by repositioning the wall stencil template across your walls. You can learn how to stencil from ceiling to floor in our How to Stencil Repeating Patterns tutorial. This easy stenciling technique can be done on a variety of DIY projects, including wall stenciling, floor stenciling, curtain stenciling, and furniture stenciling.
