Wall Decor - Easy Stencil Art with Tutorial


After a long time, I am here with an easy wall decor, which I proudly display in my living room.

Doesn't it look classy? I tell you this is the easiest one to do! All you need are
1. Thick white cardstock - I've used 4 A4 sheets
2. Masking tape
3. Your favorite stencil - I've used the Daisy Cluster stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.
4. Colored Inks - I chose 4 Altenew inks - Ruby Red, Persian Blue, Bamboo and Mignight Violet
5. Ink blending tool (or) stencil brush

It was an experiment for me, sorry I don't have the pics but you can follow this easy tutorial to make one! I hope this drawing is clear enough to understand the steps below.

Step 1: Choose the size of your work, and decide on the square's side. I started by trimming the biggest square out of one A4 cardstock, which is 8.5x8.5. These sheets are a little glossy on one side and normal on the other. I use them mainly as the base notecards for all my cards.

Step 2: Score at 1 inch from each side. Fold along the score lines like you would make a simple box lid, but do not stick it yet. I kept the glossy side on the top of the lid, and folded the score lines on the opposite side.

Step 3: Open the cardstock and you should see a square of 6.5x6.5 inches scored.

Step 4: Measure about 3/4th of an inch inner to the 6.5inch square and draw the lines light using a pencil. The square within the pencil lines is the area for stencil work.

Step 5: Using masking tape, cover all the 4 sides along the pencil lines. This would make a crisp white border around the stencil work.

Step 6: Now place the stencil and tape it temporarily to lock in position.

Step 7: Using ink blending tool and your choice of colored ink, apply ink through the stencil until you get the desired effect.

Step 8: Once you are done with stenciling, remove the masking tapes and fold along the score lines. Your work would be highlighted with the white border effect.

Step 9: Apply adhesive on the corner flaps and complete the box. It is basically just a lid of a box but of a bigger size.

Step 10: Repeat the steps 1 to 9 to make 4 of different colors.

Step 11: Insert push pins or nails on the wall, and hang the lids to them. Position your pins according to the desired look and space them. Your wall art is ready :)

Oh I also added a pocket watch to hang in the same push pin as the green box for more interest :)

Here are some more close up pics!

All the 4 boxes evenly spaced and hanged on wall with push pins

Here is a quick video to show how it actually is.
