A DIY project for my dining room wall

step 1: designing and choosing the motif for the wall
step 2: a homemade stencil, a dishwash sponge and some poster paint got me started 
step 3: voila! a pattern's created across the wall.

  4. Shahana,

    hi there. I am doing up my balcony wall and thought of stencilling them. Remembered this post so am here to clarify a doubt. What kind of paper shall I use to draw the stencil pattern on? Do you think butter paper would work because I am thinking normal paper would get wet and soggy. Or did you use a plastic laminate sheet? Any tips would be a great help. Thanks a bunch.

    1. Hey Harshika, use plastic sheets...I recycled covers of presentation dockets.
