DIY Stenciled Boho Decor

If you think stenciling is difficult, I'm here today to show you how easy it is! 

Sometimes just one simple stenciled color on a piece makes all the difference.

Today I'm using one of my new favorite Boho stencils on several different projects.

You won't want to miss this!

First of all I began with this great stencil:

It is called "stitches" by Old Sign Stencils.

I couldn't wait to have a stencil with a small boho/tribal /mudcloth design like this one. 

I had several ideas so I am putting them all in one post to show you how easy it is to decorate something you already have. 

First up, a raised tray that I bought for $3 at Target.

All I did was to lay the stencil on top of the tray and pounce a light coat with a stencil brush.

It took 2 minutes! 

Secondly, I had made a bunch of footed trays a while back from repurposed cabinet doors. 

This black one was perfect for this same stencil in white.

Again, it took about 2 minutes.

Lastly, and my personal favorite... I stenciled the design onto a grey pillow cover using black paint and I couldn't love it more! 

I used the wrapper from the stencil to place inside the pillow cover so when I stenciled the paint wouldn't bleed through the layers.

That one took about 5 minutes!

You may notice that I cut this stencil apart to fit it on all kinds of shapes. 

When I need the whole stencil it easily tapes back together! 

So all in all I created a set of decorative items for my home in about 10 minutes.

This stencil is just my style and I can't wait to use it again!

I just love how this stenciled pillow looks with my other pillows in my living room! 

You can see how I made that no sew heart pillow cover here.
