Our Gato Muerto cat stencil is the purrrfect decor for the Day of the Dead and Halloween! According to ancient Mexican tradition, ornate sugar skulls or Calaveras were used to honor the deceased loved ones and to celebrate family connections. It is believed that the deceased ancestors would offer protection, good luck, health and wisdom to the family members. Usually you’d see human sugar skull ornaments displayed for Day of the Dead, but we thought that a sugar skull cat stencil is just as decorative and relevant! Our cute Halloween-themed stencils
are a fun way to decorate your home! Check out the entire Halloween stencil collection for pumpkin stencils, skull stencils, and many other Halloween designs!

Yes, you can stencil your own fabric
and use it for curtains,
tablecloths, pillows, and what not! When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive
is very helpful. First, tape your ironed fabric to a flat surface so it
move around while you stencil. Use stencil brushes, or a dense foam roller, and add
some textile medium ( sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You
can also get a special fabric paint, but, good craft acrylics
with a dollop of textile medium work just as well, and cost way less,
Textile medium is optional - it only makes the acrylic paint
more flexible when it dries, which is important for wearables like
t-shirts, but not so much for pillows and curtains. Complete the
stenciling and let it dry fully (24 hours is best), then
heat-set it by ironing the fabric for approximately 20 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. I've stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics
with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too
You'll need some stencil brushes and/or a dense foam roller for your stenciling project.
