Hung Up on Stenciling: Wonderful Wall Art Ideas

What better way to personalize a room than with custom, creative wall art that comes from your own hands. Stencils make it so easy to create eye-catching wall art to accessorize your mantel, hang on a gallery wall or simple prop prettily on a tabletop to create a backdrop for a colorful vignette. What’s even better is that wall art is easily movable, so you can change up your style whenever you’d like! If you are looking for some original ideas that you can create at home, take a look at these 7 stenciled wall art projects that can easily add style to any space:

Instead of using an allover wall stencil directly on the wall, House of Rumours decided to mix it up with a variety of complimentary colors and interesting techniques over 3 unique craft projects. The Mughal Trellis Moroccan Stencil gets transformed over a grouping of fun and funky decorative pieces such as canvas art, hanging décor and picture frames.All the same stencil . . . but completely different looks. We can think of a better way to showcase he diversity that is possibly with stencils!

A beautiful white wall hanging is an elegant way to decorate your walls without painting directly on them! For our DIY wall hanging, we were inspired by a Moroccan Wedding Blanket and used Moroccan Stencils, canvas, and ribbon. What’s great about this project is that you can use any of our stencils and any paint colors to create a wall art that coordinates with your home décor.

When we spotted this grand stenciled canvas wall art on our Instagram feed, it stopped us in our tracks. It’s the result of a fantastic creative collaboration between talented decorative artist and set stylist Tobey Renee Sanders (LaLa’s Full Court LifeWhy Did I Get Married?) and award-winning actress and budding home fashionista Keshia Knight Pulliam (The Cosby Show, House of Payne). Our Fabric Damask Wall Stencil repeated over a large grouping of canvass creates a glamorous focal point in a contemporary space.

Here's a fun DIY project to do with the kids: Sarwat Jafri and her 5 year old daughter made these colorful pieces of Moroccan wall art with help from our Moroccan Stencils collectionand our quick and easy tutorial: Stencil How-to: Colorful Moroccan Canvas Art. Whether you prefer pinks and oranges, or blues and greens, stencils give you the opportunity to customize your wall art with the paint colors that work best for you.

The Handmade Home created a bold graphic statement in her bedroom with stenciled wall art. She paired our Moroccan Arches Allover Wall Stencil with “weathered’ pine planks. We love the rustic charm! This DIY project is a great way to add drama to a wall when you can’t paint directly on it – like if you’re renting. It’s a keeper – she can take it on to her next home, too!

Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky wanted to decorate her hallway with something different and brighten up the space. Instead of hanging wall art, she opted for a large piece of wood that she could stand up and eventually remove when it pleased her. For a temporary and colorful fix to this dull space, she used our Triangulations Wall Stencil that features a playful take on a timeless geometric shape.

When Debbie came across the Chrysanthemum Allover stencil, she knew it would be a great compliment to her living room décor. It is a wonderful large-scale, Japenese floral pattern and blends beautifully with the stenciled loveseat from another post. Her goal was to create an artwork that looks almost like it was drawn with chalk on a board, and then mount it inside the huge painted frame to make it easily blend with the room. Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and our intricate flower stencil was the perfect pairing for this DIY.

A New Found Treasure Blog created some gorgeous stenciled canvas wall art with the Moroccan Scallops Stencil. The bold black and white color scheme sets a modern tone and the canvas art is portable so it can be moved from room to room, or house to house!

We love Hello Lovely ‘s latest projects using large stencils on small canvases. “For an even speedier project, use a discarded book as your canvas. Simply remove the pages from an old book, paste a few inside the cover, layer on images (or linen like I did), and stencil as imperfectly as you desire. Mine was hung on the wall with a bit of silk casually wrapped around the book cover.” She used our Florentine Damask Stencil to create this beautifully coordinated wall art pieces.


Now that you’re inspired, you can make your own Pinterest-worthy décor that’s ready to be shown off in only an afternoon! Better yet, make different styles of stenciled wall art that you can easily remove and replace depending on the season, style, or mood! If you’ve used our stencils to add pretty pattern to your DIY wall art projects, we’d love to see your results. Email us at or post to our Facebook Page. We love to share your beautiful stencil projects with our readers!
