10 Uses of Printable Stencil Letters
Stencils have so many uses and can be re-used time and again for multiple projects. Keep reading below for a list of 10 activities you can do using my printable stencil lettering!
1. Spray Painting
Spray painting is a fun pastime that can include a variety of elements, such as lettering.
If you want to add a message to a mural or sign your name, try printing and cutting out my stenciling sheets!
If your spray-paint project is going to be displayed in public, using lettering stencils ensures that the message you want to send can be easily read.
To use these stencils for painting, I recommend printing them onto thicker paper, such as card stock, to prevent the paper from getting too wet and ripping at the edges.
You could also trace the letters with a pencil or pen and then fill them in with paint, which may come in handy if you need to go over the stencils multiple times.
2. Wall Decor
Instead of purchasing stick-on quotes that can ruin your wall, use stencil lettering to paint the words you want to be featured in your home.
After printing off and cutting out my stencil sheets, decide what words, numbers, or quotes you want to be displayed, and either brush paint or spray paint them onto your wall.
As a tip: if you want to display a nice message at your home entrance, I recommend painting a quote about family or the comforts of home.
3. Sign Writing
Another great use for these stencil letters and numbers is for creating signs. If you’re making a sign with wood, I recommend using paint to go over the letters/numbers, as it will last much longer.
Listed below are sign ideas you can use my stencils for:
- Bedroom door sign with your or your kid’s name(s)
- “Welcome” sign for the front door or entryway
- Wedding date sign (e.g., The Anderson’s est. YEAR)
4. Party Decorations
Every party needs some decorations, and making them yourself is always a great way to add a personal touch to an event.
For example, if you’re throwing an anniversary party or wedding shower, you can write messages such as “Happy Anniversary,” “The Future Mrs.,” and so on.
You can also use my large letter stencil prints to add the party recipient’s initials to items such as party favor gift bags.
5. Work Signs
Purchasing signs for work can be expensive, and sometimes it can be difficult to locate the specific sign you require. In that case, you can save time and money by making your own.
My stencil sets would be great for this project as the letters are capitalized and easy to read, which serves to get certain rules and instructions across clearly to employees and customers.
Also, if you’re able to be more creative with the signs, such as chalkboard menus, you can fill in the stencil shapes with different colors, use add borders and drawings, and other fun elements!
Certain types of work signs you can use my stencils for are:
- Instruction boards
- Open/Closed signs
- Café menus
- Customer appreciation boards
- Out of Order signs
- Table Closed/Reserved signs
- Closed for maintenance signs
Scrapbooking is one of those activities where you can’t have too many materials, so why not add stencils to the mix?
If you want to add more diverse lettering and numbering to your scrapbook besides your own handwriting, my stencil sets are great for adding titles, names, locations, etc., to your page layout.
For more diverse lettering choices, I recommend using Style 1 of my stencil set, as the letters have a nice creative look to them!
7. Art Projects
If you want to add some lettering to your art projects, you can use my printable stencils to make the task much easier! There are plenty of projects you can use these letters for, such as:
- Custom book covers
- Sewing projects (tote bags, book slips, etc.)
- Mixed media (the letters would be great for adding quotes from books or films)
- Scrapbooking (mentioned above)
- Photo albums
- Wedding albums
- Woodworking projects
If you’re using these stencils on a flat surface like a canvas or notebook, I recommend setting a heavy object on each side of the paper to keep the stencil in place while you fill in the letters.
Because these stencils print onto paper, I would caution against taping them in place, as they could end up ripping.
8. DIY Home Decor
Another way you could use my printable stencils is when creating your own home decor pieces. The letters could be used for quotes, sayings, names, or titles.
Depending on the materials you’ll be using to make your decor, you may want to use a pencil to fill in the stencil letter first to prevent you from needing to start over again.
For instance, if you’re using wood and you make an accident with paint or ink, it may be difficult to remove the color.
Try using my stencils for decor, such as:
- Candle holders (write the name or ingredients of the candle scent)
- Recipe boxes
- Wall art
- Labeled tins and jars (cake, sugar, coffee, etc.)
- Chalk daily tasks board
9. Stationery and Invitations
When sending cards, letters, and invitations, it’s always fun to personalize them a bit, making for a great keepsake for the recipient.
So, if you have an occasion to send one of the above, add a nice message or put the recipient’s name on the envelope using my printable stencils!
I recommend tracing out these letters/numbers with a light pencil and then applying ink or paint afterward to avoid mistakes, especially if you’re adding this decal after you’ve filled out the card/letter.
10. Cake Decorating
One of the most fun aspects of baking a cake is decorating it.
If you have a special occasion coming up, such as a wedding or an anniversary, you could put a special message on the cake using my printable stencils!
To apply the stencil, you can use edible glitter after the cake has been frosted, or apply a different colored frosting over the stencil.
