Favorite Etsy Stencils

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Happy wet Wednesday!  It's been pouring buckets since yesterday afternoon and should continue for the rest of the day.  No worries, when the weather turns foul outside it's the perfect opportunity to tackle a diy project.  Stenciling comes to mind as one of those projects I would love to explore.  Stenciling has several advantages over wallpaper - it's much less expensive, you can customize the colors to suit your palette, and when you get tired of it, you can simply paint over it!

Etsy is a goldmine for stencil patterns - here are a few of my favorites.

Whimsical water lily stencil from Etsy seller Olive Leaf Stencils

Acacia pattern from Etsy seller Cutting Edge Stencils

This is the perfect solution if  the Cole & Son birch wallpaper is out of your budget. Silver Birch Branches, also from Olive Leaf Stencils

Ikat pattern from Olive Leaf Stencils

from Royal Design Stencils - add Ibuprofen to your materials list if you try this.

Cutting Edge Stencils

Nadya from Cutting Edge Stencils

 The Swedish Floral from Cutting Edge Stencils is understated and charming - I like it!

And on the opposite end of the spectrum, you can go bold with this giant squid stencil from Olive Leaf.

Find these and pages more at Etsy.

Hope it's sunny where you are!

I had no idea these companies were on Etsy. I may now, if it's possible, love Etsy even more! That ikat stencil is beautiful, but I love them all! I'd have a hard time choosing.

I adore the Olife Leaf ikat designs- have had them on my radar for a little while and am just so inspired by their stuff. Also loving that black trellis ceiling- so gorgeous!

I really like that acacia one and that teal/white wall is beautiful. That Ibuprofen comment seriously made me laugh out loud - very funny :)

Those are beautiful. I had never thought of looking on etsy for stencils but I see that I most definitely should. Love that squid although it could be a little creepy.

Love the waterlilies but what's with the squid - ew! Not sure my handiwork would end up looking like those, though.

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

I love Cole and Sons The Woods, so this IS a nice alternative!

In my own place I might consider the Ikat.

Never tried a stencil... are they hard? I'm not the best painter, but I've certainly tackled a few projects.

I love them all! I can't decide which one is my favorite.


great roundup...might have to add some WINE and ibuprofen.....:) Some of those suckers look labor intensive!

Unknown said...
