How to stencil a Roller Blind

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Stencil
  • Stencil Brush
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paper Plate
  • Spray Mount or Masking Tape

Step 1

To start off, get your stencil and spray the back of it with spray mount. Let it dry before positioning the stencil onto the roller blind.

Don’t panic if you don’t have spray mount; masking tape will do just fine. Simply apply it to the stencil before positioning it on the blind.

Step 2

Pour a small amount of pain into the paper plate.

Now dab the stencil brush into the paint and swirl it, so the colour is evenly distributed between the bristles and to also remove excess paint.

Step 3

Start by swabbing the paint onto your gorgeous stencil and moving the brush in a circular motion. Continue stencilling but only apply the bare minimum of paint when needed.

Finally, mask off the stencil to confirm that you didn’t get pain on any unnecessary areas.

When you’re done painting, remove the stencil.

Step 4

Great work so far! Check if your roller blind is wider than the stencil pattern. If it is, you may have to wait till the stencil has dried entirely before repositioning the stencil again so that you can continue the pattern if you so desire.

Quick Tip– If you aren’t a very patient person, then you can speed up the drying with a hairdryer.

Step 5

Hang and allow your guests to enjoy the view of your stunning Roller Blind artwork.

 

Don’t fret if you mess a few blobs disrupting your perfect pattern. It’s your work, be proud of it. It’s handmade after all.

Add a little colour and mess to your life with this fantastic Roller Blind DIY. It’s great fun!
