Indian Stencils DIY Projects on Paint + Pattern

Last month Paint + Pattern featured art, crafts and architecture from the beautiful country of India, while we at Royal Design Studio launched a new and gorgeous Indian Stencils Collection.

Our talented contributors, Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky and Deb Trombley of India pied-a-terre, used some of these new stencil patterns to share a few amazing DIY’s with our readers. Here is a quick look at their creative ideas that came through the prettiest tables, powder room ceilings, nooks, and doors created by them. 


Debbie has a knack with upcycling things that can be easily found around the house,  at small local businesses or from discounted craft markets. To decorate this metal riser she found at a local importer, she used our Small Paisleys Furniture stencil along with various colors of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. The best part about this project is that it is well suited for a beginner as well as a pro. To learn more about how you can create your own metal or wooden stools, see the full DIY post - A Chalk Paint® Project Served Up with Stencils.



In another project, Debbie shares how you can Brighten Up A Bathroom With Ceiling Stenciling. It’s a great DIY project that anyone can easily use to decorate bathroom spaces in their own homes and add some pizzazz. For this project she used our specially customized 3” stencil brush, Pearl Oyster Stencil Crème and the lovely Indian Paisley Damask Stencil from the new India Stencil Collection. 



If you are looking to take up something big and bold, Deb’s two part project of Transforming a Closet space into an Exotic Reading Nook might just be the right one for you. Part 1 of this DIY covers the process of stenciling the wooden bench while Part 2 shows how you can stencil on a silk fabric using Royal Stencil Cremes. She picked an assortment of Indian and Moroccan stencils including the Rani Paisley Damask Stencil and the Taj Tile Border Stencil to complete this project. If you have such extra spaces and corners in your house, check out the full DIY to get ideas as to how you could make best use of those unused areas. 



And just like her, if your house too revels in exotic décor, this Inspired by Saris: A Shimmery DIY Stenciled Door might be a great source of inspiration to decorate plain doors. For this project, Deb used a variety of patterns from our new India Stencil Collection along with various colors of the Royal Stencil Cremes. Be sure to check out the entire post to learn how she got the door to look so pretty and unique!



Last but certainly not the least, we at Royal Design Studio just love the intricate patterns of henna. For the sake of variety and fun, we conjured up a little project in our studio using something besides our stencils. We wanted to play with the beautiful henna patterns of India so we did a DIY Henna-Inspired Shirts with Tee Juice Pens project. It actually turned out to be a great discovery to transform plain T-shirts into something beautiful and exotic! See how easy it is to make simple tee's look great through this DIY.
