Bring in universal harmony with our Flower of Life mandala stencil. The Flower of Life is a symbol composed of overlapping circles and is considered to be the most important and sacred symbol in the Universe. We have taken this pattern and created a beautiful mandala stencil. Much better and versatile than a mandala decal, our Flower of Life mandala stencil can be painted on furniture, walls and ceilings in the colors of your choice. Using this large Flower of Life stencil in your home will not only add beauty, but also will bring in the healing energy of sacred geometry.
For the mandalas that are 12.5" to 36", you will be receiving a full medallion. For the 44" mandalas, you will receive half of the design and to complete the medallion, pick up the stencil after completing one side, flip it and line up the registration marks (see photo above), tape it and do it again.
Be creative: overlap the
design, use different colors, create your own allover flower stencil
pattern, add shading - possibilities are endless. You can even make it
somewhat 3D by troweling plaster through the stencil. You can stencil
latex paint, plaster, faux finish background or even wallpaper if it
is in decent condition.
This mandala stencil is so easy to use, virtually
anyone can do it. Simply tape it to the wall using BLUE
painter's tape, then load your foam roller with the paint of your choice
(latex or acrylic). Get rid of excess paint by rolling the foam roller over a folded paper towel.
Then, just roll it over the stencil applying medium pressure for an
instant fabulous result! Don't press on the roller too hard otherwise
you might get some bleed. Transform your room in less than 1 hour!

Although most of our stencils do not require the use of spray adhesive,
if your walls have a texture to them, it might be a good idea to use
spray adhesive to help minimize paint seepage (Elmer's spray adhesive
seems to be the best). Make sure you shake the can well and lightly mist
(not drench) the stencil, and let it dry for a moment before
positioning it on the wall. This step will prevent the adhesive residue
transferring to the wall. You'll need to re-mist the stencil after a few
repeats. Note: you
will still need to hold the stencil in place with a few pieces of blue
painters tape! Adhesive by itself is not enough to hold the stencil on
the wall. Clean-up tip:Spray
the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove adhesive residue and
let it sit for a while before cleaning with soap and water. Please note
that it is virtually impossible to get rid of all adhesive residue.
That's why we personally prefer not to use it and just stick with
About seepage and imperfections:
Even with a proper loaded roller and correct technique you might get
some minor paint seepage here and there. In most cases it's not
noticeable, especially from a couple of feet away and it can be easily
touched up with a small brush. Don't forget that you're creating a
"hand-painted wall finish". A few imperfections and some paint seepage
here and there are natural and inevitable for this type of work. To
avoid seepage, use spray adhesive and less paint on your roller and
Did you know you can stencil your own fabric
and use it for curtains, tablecloths, pillows, etc.? When stenciling on
fabric, please use stencil adhesive to ensure good results. First, tape
your ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't move around while you
stencil. You'll get better results with stencil brushes, but sometimes
roller can work too, depending on your fabric. Add some textile medium (
sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You can also get a
specially formulated fabric paint, but, frankly, good craft acrylic
paint with a dollop of textile medium mixed in works just as well, and
costs way less! :) Let the stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is
best, then heat-set it by ironing the fabric for about 20-30 seconds on a
LOW setting through the piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the
paint and will prevent it from being washed off in the washing machine.
Always experiment with a sample of your fabric first to ensure good
results. We have stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics
with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too
The stencil is made out of durable 12 mil clear plastic stencil material.
This material is strong but flexible, reusable and easy to clean. We
love it so much more than standard 5-8 mil Mylar! It's not brittle, user
friendly and just so easy to work with. In our many years of
professional stenciling this material has proven to be far superior
than any other stencil material we used. Our customers love it too, and
we are sure that you'll notice the difference! Our stencils will last a
long time and are a pleasure to use.SaveSaveSaveSave
