Do you like to jam? Well, here’s a great guitar stencil for your music room or garage band area! It works good on T-Shirts too.
Maybe you want to create some art for that "guitar playing" son or daughter of yours, or if you're like me; your husband! Truly stencil art they could appreciate while giving you the opportunity to decorate their space in something other than piled high clothes and band posters!
OK - So you noticed there’s not just one Guitar Stencil - there’s two! Well, I got carried away as usual. Once I started to sketch out my designs I couldn’t decide which one I liked better so go on and have both.
On another note, these stencils are not just for walls. Check out the cool T-Shirt I painted below. Don’t forget that using stencils gives you the design decisions. What color T-Shirt is right and the color of the paint is all up to you too! It can be designed specifically for the wearer.
You can get plain T-Shirts like this anywhere and they are cheap! But putting your own art on it makes it unique and priceless (Am I sounding too much like a commercial?).
If you want to explore using stencils for decorating T-Shirts more in detail then visit Custom T Shirt and Fabric Stenciling where you’ll find a step by step plan in photos.

Working with paper stencils like this free Guitar Stencil 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 and you can’t do that with a plastic stencil.
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.
For more on working with paper stencils see our article on
If you think you’re going to become a downloadable stencil fanatic then get yourself some clear shelf liner paper to cover your stencils before cutting them out. It’s so much easier and it’s really not expensive at all. You’ll love the ease this provides.
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.
