We made this pattern in 2 sizes: using 6" tiles and 8" tiles. Larger tiles are best for the stenciled floors, but will look great on a wall too.
Along with the stencil, we also include a free Single Tile stencil so you can get into all the tight places when finishing your wall or floor pattern.
alignment please refer to the pics. Stencil aligns easily vertically
and horizontally for a seamless wallpaper effect by slightly overlapping
and locking in with previously painted parts.
We recommend using any allover stencil with our Clip-on Stencil Level,
(sold separately). Discover how easy it is to achieve perfectly level
results without dealing with all those bulky heavy bubble levels and
expensive laser levels. We cannot recommend the Level enough, it's a
real time-saver and is so handy!

find them extremely helpful for your stenciling project. While prior
experience is helpful when working with repeat interlocking stencils,
even beginners get great results!
Most of our stencils do
not require the use of spray adhesive, however for this stencil pattern
we strongly recommend you use it. The nature of this design makes it
less sturdy, so if you want to minimize paint seepage or are using high
contrasting colors, spray adhesive is very helpful (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. Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green
to help to remove adhesive residue.
Stenciling on rough or textured walls may contribute to increased paint bleed. For more information on stenciling on textured walls, see our F.A.Q. section.
