Free Stenciling Patterns

For a site that's All-About-Stencils we just had to offer you a couple of free stenciling patterns to really get you motivated. OK! It's more than a couple but what can I say?

The free printable stencils have gotten out of control. Once I started to design I just couldn't stop. It was too much fun. Well, you win!

Tree Frog Stencil from

The first three free stenciling patterns are simple right click and print or save designs. The last two are booklet files with complete instructions that you can download and print or save. These options should offer you a good idea of what you can expect with downloadable stencils and free stenciling patterns. Enjoy!

Don't miss the video at the bottom of this page that will reveal a cool project using one of the free stenciling patterns from this web site!

Got Frogs? I love the little creatures. There's just something so lovable about them. This free stenciling pattern is a single layer rendition of the Hanging Around Tree Frog from the book below. In the book he has 5 layers and finishes with more detail. Hope you like him.

Would you like to see a cool project with the frog stencils? (OK, just click on the blue text or the picture).

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 stenciling pattern. 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.

Rose Stencil From

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 paper underneath may get wet when you wash the stencil but just let it dry and you can flatten it back out by storing it in a book.

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.

Cool is an attitude, behavior, appearance or style. It's meaning is varied and changes with time and geographical location. Therefore, cool has no single meaning. That’s why we have several samples of free Cool Stencils for you to recognized your cool.

Butterfly Stencil from

Cut-and-paint stencils are less expensive (unless of course they're free!). You’re not paying for the manufacture, warehousing and shipping of a product. If you can find down-loadable stencils to print you can have your stencil immediately with no delay to your project.

Here we offer some free stenciling patterns to get you started and a few in book format of our more complex designs.

Do you want to see our catalog? Hop over to our Stencils Designs. There are a couple of samples of the books you'll find further down on this page.

The most unique patterns you will ever find are Toile Stencils. You see, Toile is a very ornate and detailed design and that's just not good for a stencil. But of course we have a free one for you!

Happiness Symbol from

OK! Here are the two free stenciling patterns that are downloadable files in booklet form. I know you'll like the outcome. Just click on the image or the blue text to access your file. I hope you create some great art with these images. Pssst! If you look around this site you'll find many ideas of what kind of art you can create with them.

This stencil is a Symbol for Happiness. It is a single overlay stencil of the cut-and-paint design.

It's part of a collection that includes nine other symbols and images such as Bamboo, Yin-Yang Koi, Chinese Dragon, Three Cranes and other Oriental Designs that can be mixed and matched to make some wonderful artwork (scroll down for ideas). Enjoy!

Half Moon Fleur de lis from

This stencil is called The Half Moon Fleur de lis Stencil! It's a 2 overlay stencil of the cut-and-paint design. Enjoy!

The Half Moon Fleur de lis is part of a collection of 22 Fleur de lis designs. Scroll down for the books and some great examples of what you can do with them.

Have you ever noticed something on a wall or table or floor and then realized that it was only a painting? That's Trompe L'Oeil which means "trick the eye" in French. We actually have a free Trompe L Oeil Stencil of an old fashioned key bow that you can paint on the doors in your home. Won't that be fun! And while you're at it check out the Trompe Loeil Stencils.
