Since I caught you in the mood of redesigning your walls, I think you might find some more ideas and inspiration at Stencils For Walls. By the way, this is part of our Free Stencils Collection. We have so many to offer that they are scattered throughout this web site so keep browsing the pages and come back here for all your Stenciling Ideas and Projects.
Well, first of all it was designed as palm tree wall stencils which means I created it for
Stencil Wall Murals (click here to watch a video on painting wall murals with stencils like the one in the picture below). You’ll need to take this pattern to a print shop or find a way to get it enlarged to fit your project area. So, if you are creating a mural with it like I did then it needs to be huge.
You see, working with paper stencils like this free palm tree wall stencil has a few advantages like being able to make the same stencil different sizes. You can also take the page to a copier machine to reduce or enlarge. Of course to get it large enough for a mural that will be a challenge which is why I recommend bringing it to a print/copy shop.
Once you get it sized correctly you’ll need to cut out the stencil openings. Wait! Before you go through all that work why not prepare your palm tree wall stencils for many uses? Keep reading before you cut. You’ll thank me later.
Are you new to working with paper stencils? If so 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. Get a roll of clear shelf/drawer liner. Cut sections the size of your stencil, peel off the back and cover the entire top side of the stencil. Burnish or rub down to get the air pockets out. That’s it.

By the way, I like to do just the top side of the paper because 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.
OK! I told you that I had many ideas for using this palm tree wall stencil in your private paradise. We talked about murals but what about keeping this stencil the size of an 8-1/2” by 11” and painting patterns on your walls like a wallpaper? The beauty of working with stencils is that you are in charge. Choose the colors and patterns that best suit your image of what paradise is like.
Have you thought about using these stencils to decorate some throw pillows? It’s easy and talk about customizing your décor.
