All The Animal Stencils You Can Roar About!

Wild about animals? Well, we have the animal stencils just for you - everything from tame and housebroken to wild and wooly!

Pet Stencil from

This is the place for you to find all the creatures you love. From the fur babies that sleep at the foot of your bed, to the farm animals you grew up with to the leapers and crawlers that may not have ever been on your pet list.

But let's start with the most familiar - our best friends! I put together some Free Dog Stencil Patterns for you to create a world of goodies. You'll find eight different breed profile silhouettes with a paw and bone and of course the "I heart My" for you to mix and match. Enjoy!

You didn't think I forgot you feline fanatics! Never! Don't miss these Free Cat Stencils!

Stenciled Bee Planter from

Add a little whimsy to your garden with this adorable Bee Stencil Planter. Like most artists and crafters you most likely have many interests. If gardening is one of them why not bring some of your painting talents to your flower beds. Gardens and critters are a natural match so why not paint animal stencils on pots for plants? Here’s a great way to do just that!

If you are looking for some prehistoric fun then consider painting a few dinosaurs and some jungle plants in your project. If that sounds good then dont miss these Free Dinosaur Stencil Patterns.

Stencil Carved Cat Pumpkin from

The Black Cat is a natural part of any Halloween decoration. Sleek and sinister they add a little mystery to the holiday. We have one for you to use to create a pumpkin masterpiece and you can find it free at Cat Stencils for Pumpkin Carving along with other cat stencils that will work well with all of your other Halloween Crafts. You'll also find a Cool Cat Stencil that was borrowed from the Cool Stencils Collection.

If the animal stencils that you are seeking belong on a farm then check out the Cow Stencil and her friends.

Dolphin Stencil Tote from

Dolphins have emerged as a creature much loved for its intelligence and seemingly human-like emotions. Not to mention their eagerness to develop relationships with us.

Well, if you love them like I do, then I know you’ll really appreciate the free Dolphin Stencil and the project that I have prepared for you. Next time you head out to the beach make a splash with this cute tote bag. Pile all your surf gear inside and make all the other fish in the sea jealous. OK – Enough of the fishy business. Let’s get started!

Oh wait! Since we're talking about sea life don't forget all the project ideas for a Fish Stencil.

Eagle Stenciled Clothes from

It’s the 4th of July and I was inspired to do something Patriotic. So I designed this Eagle Stencil and now I want to share him with you!

He’s just one of many Free Animal Stencils that we have on this web site so come back often and keep an eye open for new arrivals.

Also, I want to show you how I re-designed a pair of jeans, an old jean jacket and a black T-Shirt. Watch the video below to follow me through painting the jeans.

Yin Yang Koi Stenciled Stool Project from

I love working with small pieces. They are easy to maneuver and when finished it’s easier to find a space for them in your home. Plus, I don’t know about your house but small stools like this one come in handy for an extra seat or a step up to the top shelf. I couldn’t believe it when my neighbor had it out for the trash. What a find! All it needed was a quick spray paint base of black paint and my canvas was ready to go.

Since the top of the stool was round I was inspired to find a stencil to mimic the shape. This Yin Yang Koi Stencil fit the bill. Not to mention the color choices that work well with the fish stand out so well on the black background. Make sure your surface is not too glossy or slick that the paints for the stencils will bead up. If you are spray painting a base coat, use a flat paint (you can always come back with a clear coat for protection and beauty when the project is finished). If your item already has a base coat and it’s glossy, just lightly sand it down with a fine sand paper.

Well, follow the links for more details on this fishy animal stencils project!

Stenciled Sea Trunk from

There's nothing like the sound of the waves and the rush of the sea air to wash away all our worries. It's no wonder that a underwater theme is so popular. Join me as I invite a little of the beach into my home by repainting a small chest with these Sea Stencils. Don't miss the animal stencils below where you'll find these designs.

This was an old fishing gear chest that my father built back when I was a little girl. Because of those memories and because my father made this little chest I could never bear to part with it. However, I could bear to part with the army green color he had painted it. So I stated to transform it with an off white base and them swept light tan brush strokes over the whole thing to give it that wind swept sandy look.

The top has a seagull to bring home the beach theme and below him along the front are his underwater pals. All were painted using the stencils available in the book below. They are mostly multi layer stencils which give you a more detailed image than a single layer stencil.

Tiger and Zoo Babies Stencils from

Decorating for children is so much fun. It gives us an opportunity to do more than design – we get the chance to create a fantasy!

A neighborhood Nursery School asked me to add some animal stencils to their small classroom like these giraffe and Tiger Stencils. They wanted pictures to help teach and stimulate the little minds. Taking into account the sky blue walls and the flower border used as a chair rail molding, I decided that the Zoo Babies Wall Stencils would be the perfect match.

The Zoo Babies Book (available below) also includes a cute little Monkey Stencil.
