We’ve shown you how to stencil on fabric before, it’s a really fun and easy way to make customized pillows, runners, napkins…whatever! Now we’re going to take stenciling to the next level, and put it on repeat.
Many of the stencils we carry have a repeating pattern, which is usually symmetrical and can be continued seamlessly. This is great for when you’re trying to cover a large area, like a table top, dresser drawers, or a wall. We chose the Annie Sloan Tallulah stencil to make our white pillow cases take on a Swedish vibe.
Some others that have a repeating pattern are Petrushka, Bell Flowers, Flower String, Oak Leaves, and Roses. But you can always be creative! Try mixing and matching different stencils to create your own patterns.
The finished product, painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Primer Red made a simply stunning effect on a plain white case.
See how the original design took on completely different look when repeated over the surface? We can just imagine doing this as a border around a rectangular table, or across dresser drawers. The white and red combo is especially sharp.
What will you stencil on repeat? What colors would you choose instead of red?
