We just had a custom closet installed in our home and I wanted to add a special touch with this Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil. It is much more affordable than tile and wallpaper and it’s a project you can do ANYWHERE. In addition to it being cost effective, you can size your stencil tile perfectly to fit your space. Enjoy this fun home décor DIY craft project!
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Supplies Needed:
• Silhouette CAMEO®
• Silhouette Cutting Mat
• Silhouette Cutting Blade (auto blade)
• Silhouette Studio®
• Paint (we used Valspar in Polar white)
• Stipple Flat Sponge Brush
• Measuring Tape
• Transfer Tape (to tape stencil to wall)
• Plastic Stencil (we used a plastic folder)
• Silhouette Hook Tool
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 1: Measure Wall
Measure your wall from side to side and top to bottom
Figure out how you will need to size your Silhouette stencil art so it will evenly tile in your space. Mine is a 6 x 6” square
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 2: Locate Design
After purchasing the art in the Design Store, open the art file in Silhouette Studio®. Adjust your pattern and size it to perfectly fit your space. I simplified the design to have the center section. But I am planning on doing the full stencil on another wall of our house because I love it so much!
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 3: Cut the art
When you open the Cut Settings Menu, everything the CAMEO will cut will be highlighted in red. If you are using a rotary blade, set your blade. I have an automatic blade so the hard work is already done for me!
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 4: Prepare and apply the design
When the CAMEO is finished cutting, weed out the excess plastic and tape stencil to the wall with transfer tape on each corner
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 5: Paint
With your flat stipple sponge brush get a VERY small amount of paint on the brush and apply the paint on top of the stencil. The less paint the better as you will get a more textured look and you won’t bleed through the stencil.
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 6: Remove and Repeat
Carefully Remove your stencil and re-apply it to the wall and keep repeating in your desired pattern on the wall.
Craft Closet DIY Wallpaper Stencil Step 7: Let dry
How easy was this home décor DIY wallpaper stencil project?
Until next time friends!
