Free Butterfly Stencils.

This free outline for butterfly stencils is pretty much my own creation. I changed one that I found enough that it should pass any copy law. If you think that it resembles someone else's stencil design a little too closely, contact me and I'll be glad to defer to any pre-existing copyright once proven. You can resize it to work for as large a wall or mural as you want.

I chose to do a butterfly stencil design as part of the wall decor for a baby's butterfly nursery theme. The ones that I saw in the stores weren't sturdy and reusable and were certainly not free.

I thought I'd try my hand at making my own butterfly stencils to see if I could compete with the selection of butterfly patterns and designs from the discount store. The large butterfly outlines from the craft supply stores were blocky and unrealistic. I think that my stencil pattern turned out pretty well.

Follow basic stenciling procedures and instructions for drawing your stencils with a butterfly outline to the letter for the best chance of success. Then when applying the butterfly stencil to the wall, the best way to keep your paint in the right place will be to use a very gradual application of paint. After dipping into the craft paint, blot your stenciling brush until it's almost dry. Take special care to get really thick sheets of stenciling paper, stenciling plastic sheets or whatever they call the sheets you will use to trace your butterfly outline or design. They will know what you need at the craft store and advise you further.
