How to Get Free Wall Stencils You Can Download?

Jul 24, 2008
If you are creative enough, you can even create your own original art. There are a lot of art and home-decorating stores that sell beautiful stencils ready-made. These vary in price from a few dollars to several dollars. But why not save the money and gas?

There are online sites where you can download free wall stencils on your printer, that are just as beautiful as the store-bought ones. And you are not limited by the selection in one or two stores; you can search several sites to find the wall stencil you like, without ever leaving home!

First, you must get acetate sheets to print the stencils on. They can be printed on paper, but you have to be very careful when you stencil with delicate paper. Acetate sheets are easy to find; they are just sheets of thin plastic. You can find them at any craft store. But, if you don't have a craft store near you, go to the nearest stationery, chain drug-store, or office-supply store, like Staples or Office Depot, and buy "transparencies", which are just acetate sheets.

Very important: make sure you buy the acetate or transparencies for the type of printer you have laser or ink-jet, it should say on the package. If you get the wrong kind for your printer, it can fail to print or, more importantly, the sheet can get jammed in the printer, damaging your printer! When you print the stencil on the acetate, an Exacto or craft knife is best to cut out the pattern. Here are some great websites for downloading and printing free wall stencils:
