Chevron Stencil ‘D’ for decoration

Hello from Ideal Stencils! Stencils can be used to paint and add decoration to any surface. In this project we are using our Chevron stencil and transforming a rather bland, plain white wall letter initial into something with more colour and pattern. Chevron patterns are really on trend at the moment. They can be used in any room of the house and the pattern is bold, geometric and modern. Our stencils are great for wall decor and also smaller sizes can be used for other projects such as this one.

Hi, Stencil people. Ideal stencils are bringing you another useful stencil tutorial and today we are going to be showing you how to paint your stencil (in this example our star stencil) with a roller. When your stencil has large cut out areas or you have a large project in mind then it may be worth ditching the brush and getting yourself a stencilling roller to make easy work of the job.
