Don’t know what to do with them? No problem! Just look around on this site and you’ll get loads of ideas. Wait! Don’t just print your stencils from this page and leave. I’ve added a couple of helpful tips and ideas here too.
Need to know more about basic stencil painting? Stippling is simply tapping or dabbing the loaded brush throughout the stencil openings. This technique produces a more even tone and less depth.
Swirling is moving the brush in a circular, swirling motion against the openings. This technique produces an effect of depth because more color will be along the edges of the openings and the centers will appear lighter. I always think of the swirling technique as producing a finished image that has a worn down, vintage look.
If you're new to stenciling you should go to How To Stencil. It's where you'll find all the basic techniques to help you discover how easy and rewarding stenciling can be.

Here’s a great Halloween free stencil pattern for you to kick off the scary holidays! If you want more of these, go to Free Halloween Stencils.
Are you new to working with paper stencils? If so (or even if not) you should know that you can prepare your paper stencils so that they can be used again and again. Yeah! That’s right. The one you just printed can become a long term free stencil. It’s easy. Do you have some of that clear, wide packing tape? Just use it to run even strips covering all of the paper surfaces before you cut out the stencil. Burnish or rub the tape down to get the air pockets out. That’s it.
By the way, I like to do just the top side of the paper. If the bottom is slick it can encourage paint to bleed under the stencil and smudge your surface. The underside may get wet when you wash it but just let it dry and you can flatten it back out by storing it in a book.
Get ready for Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday that’s big for crafts. Here’s a free stencil pattern but if you wan more go to Thanksgiving Crafts.
Working with paper stencils has a few advantages. You can adjust the size of your paper stencil to fit the size of your project. Just take the page to a copier and reduce or enlarge. Then cut out the stencil openings. It's that easy!

Stencils allow us to put art easily into our lives no matter what our idea of art is and where we wish to admire it. That being said, Tribal Stencils are most popular with tattoo enthusiasts but once you look at these designs you may find many other ways to display and create with them.
Now for a very popular design that is not only good for your year round decorating, it has been popular for centuries. Pineapple Stencils are a sign of hospitality and welcome so of course we have free stencil patterns for you!
