That's why I was so happy to find The Complete Book of Home Stenciling. There are 24 cards of stencils inside! There are also instructions to cut your own, as well as duplicate others. Most of the stencils are of flowers and leaves, but there are a few others, such as a duck and a rooster.
This is a book I'm looking forward to using. Do any of you have any stenciling in your home? I've read that wall paper is starting to make a comeback in home decorating and I've heard stenciling referred to as the 'poor man's wallpaper'. I can see that one would save a lot of money if you stenciled instead of put up wallpaper. And I'm thinking it might be a lot more fun than hanging those awkward rolls of paper~which I have done before. Also, you could stencil your own version of an expensive paper that is not in your current budget, or maybe duplicate an old pattern that is no longer available. Better yet, you can create your own.
