It's project month here at Apartment Therapy and one of the easiest ways to kick out a fun patterned project is with a stencil. Whether painting a wall
or adding pattern to the front of a dresser
, stencils make short work of jazzing up a project. Here, we've collected some online sources for stencils and supplies…Stenciling works with just about any kind of paint — from regular ol' latex to spray To make getting started on your project a little easier, most of the online stores also offer paint, brushes and other supplies.
• Cutting Edge Stencils Cutting Edge has a vast selection of stencils; from large sizes for creating an allover pattern to smaller stencils suitable for craft projects.
• Royal Design Studio While Royal Design Studio has a huge selection of stencils, the site is also notable for offering how-tos for stenciling projects.
• Designer Stencils In addition to offering templates for walls and crafts, Designer Stencils also stocks culinary stencils. Cake bakers, start your mixers!
• The Stencil Library From England, The Stencil Library "is generally accepted as being the worlds leading designer and manufacturer of decorative stencils."
