Bird Stencils

It’s all about bird stencils! Find the eagle stencil, a sea gull stencil, hummingbirds, peace dove, chickens and cranes. Plus so many animal stencils we had to just put ‘em in a separate list (look to the right).

As you know, birds come in many different forms. So, we’re here to give you as many types of birds, styles of stencils and project ideas as we can conjure up. Plus we’ll provide you with some free printable stencils too!

Bird Stencils from

All-About-Stencils has all the cool stencils to keep you busy painting for a wonderful lifetime. Oh wait! There is so much more you can do with stencils other than dabbing paint through the openings. Just keep reading for some great ideas!

These cute bird stencils can be found in the books below along with many other animal stencils. Plus I’ve added some ideas about how these stencils can be used. It’s my mission to motivate you to create art with stencils.

Bird stencils can be serious (like the cranes), they can be childish or cartoonish (like the chickens) or they can represent a style (like those in the Folk Art stencil below). You’re bound to find what you’re looking for here.

Eagle Stencil from

Isn’t this eagle stencil majestic? It was designed as a patriotic stencil patriotic stencil and by clicking on him you can read an article about stenciling him on a pair of jeans and a denim jacket. There’s even a video!

What I was hinting at in the beginning about there being so much more with stencils than what we normally imagine is just that. You might be looking for bird stencils to paint on a wall (and that’s great) but consider designing your own clothes. It’s fun and easy and cheap with free printable stencils like these.

And the good thing about these free stencils to print is that you can adjust the size to fit your project area. Check the print settings box that appears and see if you can adjust the size there (it may want a percentage). If not take the print to a copy machine and enlarge or reduce.

Peace Dove Stencil from

This peace dove is from the printable Christmas stencils where you can find many others for the Holidays! Look below for this stencil in a project.

Also, you can prepare these free stencils for long term use. Just cover the top of the paper with a clear protective coating like clear shelf liner before you cut out the openings. After painting you can wipe it off with a damp rag and store in a book to keep it flat.

If you don’t have any clear shelf liner and need to get started now (I know how it is - I’m pretty impatient when I get my mind set to do something) use strips of clear packing tape making sure that each row slightly overlaps the last so that the entire page is protected.

By the way I like to do just the top of the page and not the bottom. A slick coating on the bottom encourages paint to seep under and blur your painting.

Doves Christmas Tree Skirt from

Here’s a great example of what I was telling you above. Stencils can be used for much more than painting. I made a bunch of tree skirts by cutting the stencils patterns from felt and gluing them to a large circle. You can learn more about this at Christmas Art Craft and watch a video!

But the peace dove is a little bird stencil that can be used year round so don’t pigeon hole him!

Once you start looking around you’ll find so many ways to use these bird stencils. I know you already have a plan but before you know it you’ll be looking for your next art project.

Folk Art Stencil from

Here are two unusual bird stencils. They don’t represent a particular bird as much as they do a style of art which is an American Folkart Stencil. The point I would like to make is that sometimes a search for bird stencils might not turn up a pattern like this because it would be filed under the style. So, sometimes it’s good to just browse around because we might end finding bird stencils in the last place we expected.

Another benefit of working with paper stencils is that you have the option to use only part of a pattern. Let’s say that you wanted to use just one of the bird stencils. Then just cut out only the parts you want!
