I’ve been searching for some new stencil designs, and every since I bought my stencil cutter, making stencils is a CINCH!

If you missed my tutorial on how to make your own stencil, check it out HERE. 

Here are a few stencil images that I have saved in my “inspiration” folder! I don’t have the source of most of the images…darn it.

Of course you could buy super expensive wallpaper, but when you can make a stencil to create a similar look for only $3.00, why?!?!

I love this one! I wish I could remember where this one came from.

This picture was where my stencil wall inspiration came from. I found it at Whitewall and Co.

I love the turquoise in this one.

LOVE this too!

When I first started looking into recreating a wallpaper look with a stencil, I thought about using vinyl wall decals to make the look. I came to the conclusion that vinyl is SUPER expensive, especially when I wanted to do an entire wall. So, to those that are thinking about it, it is a definite possibility, but for me, my pocketbook can’t handle that. :) I’d rather spend $20.00 total on the stencil and the paint instead of $75.00 or higher on the vinyl. My thrifty core just won’t let me!

Can you picture a wall done with one of the patterns I gave you above? I sure can!

    Thank you for being so creative! I also live in St. George and wondered if you would be willing to cut me a stencil. I would pay you of course. Please let me know either way, I have been looking at very expensive wall paper and this would be sooo much better, you've opened my eyes to a new world. My email is andrea.esplin@yahoo.com. Let me know, thanks so much!

    How did you do that compass/paisley design on your outside wall? Do you have a stencil for that? I just love it. Two of my fav designs Mariners Compass and Paisley! Love your blog.
