When it comes to home décor, you can never run out of options. The home décor market is worth more than $660 billion. There’s something for everyone in such a large industry.
It can be challenging to settle for the best décor for your home with lots of options to explore, especially if you are new to shopping for home decors. If you are in this situation, why not try a Bienvenido stencil?
It’s the perfect décor for enhancing the welcoming touch of your home. Plus, it’s a flexible décor since you can use it to implement a myriad of ideas.
Below are some of these ideas and tips on how to get the best results out of stenciling.
1. Create a Wall Mural
Creating murals using a Bienvenido stencil is a pleasurable activity that you can use to bond with your family members. It’s an easy task since all you require is your creativity. You can choose to create unique patterns or try drawing your kid’s favorite cartoon character on their bedroom wall.
Murals are long-lasting. You’ll spend plenty of years admiring them if you get the art right. Remember that a clean and smooth surface provides the foundation for creating these artistic pieces.
Try scrubbing the area you’d like to stencil before the work begins. This way, the paint will stick easily on the surface. Dirt, oil, and dust are your greatest enemy during stenciling.
2. Welcome Sign Stencil
Guests who come to your house should feel at home even before interacting with you. Elicit this emotion by breathing life into your front porch’s appropriate welcome sign ideas. Here’s how you can create a welcome stencil using a wood board.
First, center the welcome stencil on the wood board and hold it in place using a spray adhesive. Then use a special stencil brush or a sponge brush to paint the stencil on the wood board. Stick to using a thin layer of paint each round of painting.
Gentle up and down motions as opposed to back-and-forth rubbing will do the trick. The choice of paint shouldn’t be a problem as any paint will give desirable results. Since you’ll be using a thin layer of paint each time, use many coats to get good coverage.
3. Design House Numbers With Bienvenido Stencils
For most people, house numbers are mundane signs that serve only one purpose – to identify their property. Few individuals beautify these signs even though doing so makes them conspicuous. Your guest should never miss your home because the house number wasn’t clear enough to guide them to the right place.
Just like stencils for a welcome sign, there are many items that you can use to stencil house numbers. The everyday items like metals, glass jugs, or the good old wood slices, among other items. The more people fail to realize you used stencils to create a house number, the better it is.
But achieving this look can be difficult, considering some stencils have connector lines that are easy to spot on the final sign. So what’s the best way to “hide the evidence”? Use a toothpick to fill in the numbers.
Using a toothpick instead of a paintbrush is time-consuming and demanding. If you aren’t up to the task, use a paintbrush on the Bienvenido stencil. The connector lines on the stencil are perfectly positioned to add an extra touch of beauty to the final number sign.
4. Flower Pot Stencil
Kudos if you already have flower pots in your garden or some parts of your home’s interior. It goes a long way to show how keen you are at sprucing up your space. Take the sprucing up a notch higher by using stencils to paint the flower pots.
It’s such an affordable craft that you could request your loved ones to help you out. It takes to figure out what patterns, pictures, or wordings you want on these pots. After that, the process of stenciling them is the same as that of creating a welcome sign.
Get them at your favorite local store craft if you lack these pots. Before stenciling, thoroughly clean the surfaces or areas of interest on these pots. Pots are notorious for having dust particles that will impede the paint’s ability to stick if you don’t get rid of them.
Also, use a strong adhesive to hold the stencils in place while working on pots. This will prevent the spray from encroaching under the plastic around your designs. The adhesive you use should be strong, but it should be easy to remove once you are done stenciling.
Baby wipes or damp paper towels will come in handy in removing residue on the pot. Adhesives leave light residue behind when you use them.
A flower pot stencil not only spruces up your flower pots but also creates everlasting memories. It’s possible to sell them as pieces of art in the future once you are through with them.
5. Stencil the Napkins
You can paint or dye almost all of the textiles present in your home. So, why not experiment with stenciling those colorful yet plain napkins lying around in your house? White paint works best with these colorful colors when it comes to stenciling.
However, you are free to experiment with colors that fit your taste. Stencil encouraging words on these napkins so that you psych up your friends during the next dinner party. Something as easy as “enjoy your meal” is sufficient to impress.
Since you’ll be experimenting, start by stenciling one napkin or maybe three. If you are impressed with what you see, consider stenciling all the napkins. A third party’s opinion of your work should give you insights about future design adjustments.
