DIY Stencils for Designer Home Decor
Stencils offer endless possibilities when it comes to DIY home decor projects. We recently purchased a drab sisal rug that needed some major attention, and decided on the Shipibo Allover stencil to give our rug a serious DIY makeover. If you are wanting to upgrade your home decor but don’t have the funds, this rug stenciling tutorial is a great place to start. You can find great deals on large sisal rugs and then buy a stencil to bring your decor to the next level instead of spending thousands on a designer rug. Below is the easy how-to tutorial on achieving our DIY stenciled rug:
This DIY home decor project doesn’t require much more than Benjamin Moore paints and your favorite stencil. We have hundreds of stencils to choose from so be sure to browse our website and pick out the perfect stencil for your space.
Here is what you’ll need for your sisal rug makeover:
- Stencil (we used the Shipibo Allover stencil)

Stenciling the Edges
Once you have stenciled the majority of your sisal rug, all you need to do is fill in the edges. Simply line up your stencil with the pattern on the rug and fill in any edges that have missing elements of the design and voila! Rug stenciled, check. Edges filled, check. Now remove the blue tape covering the binding and you are finished!
