Stamped and stenciled DIYs are easy to do, budget-friendly, and typically renter-friendly.
We have quite a few of these projects in our blog archives (and the colder months are a good time to do a little crafting), so we thought we’d share our favorites with you today.
We included a variety of projects depending on what you’re in the mood for.
Do you have a room that needs a quick makeover without spending a lot of time or money? Or, maybe you need a cute gift idea for a friend like this ring dish or these a set of cloth napkins. Keep scrolling for more ideas!
You can easily give a plain outdoor rug a makeover using any color of acrylic paint and our star template. Way cuter (and less expensive) than something you’d find online, in our opinion!
DIY Masked + Printed Geometric Shoes
This one might be a surprise to some of you, but you can add paint to a pair of boots, shoes, (or a handbag) using fabric paint. We included a video tutorial and tips in this post so you can get the same results.
Here’s another option using a gold star design on a pair of white boots. So cute!
Geometric Painted Wallpaper DIY
We love a good wallpaper hack. And just like our other stenciled DIYs, we included a template in the post so you can print the design at home. If you have a blank wall that needs some extra love, this is a great option.
Have you ever made your own stamp? We love the classic buffalo plaid design of this one, and you can add it to gift bags, cards, or a scrapbook. You can use this method to make any shape or style of stamp, too.
This is the easiest and most budget-friendly (under $10!) alternative to wallpaper. Simply cut out a design using craft foam and dip it in your favorite paint. You can listen to a podcast or a book while doing this one! How great is that?
Can you believe this is a faux tile floor? This is more of a weekend project, but 100% worth the effort. If you’re curious, you can see the rest of this amazing office makeover here.
Hand-Stamped Strawberry Crib Sheets
We love a fruit print on just about anything, and these crib sheets are no exception. These are handmade, but you could buy your own set and make the strawberry stamp. Adorable!
Curtains can be the “icing on the cake” as far as making a room feel complete. This project only requires a few things—plain curtains, fabric paint, and a paint brush.
You can do the same thing using a potato stamp. Click here to see how we made one!
Grab that extra paint and make a set of hand-stamped cloth napkins.
A ring dish is an easy craft to make for yourself or give as a gift. Elsie used wooden stamps like this to personalize her clay dish. You could do the same thing with our marbled clay ring dish DIY, too!
If you’re planning a party and can’t find a tablecloth that matches the theme, you can use fabric dye to get the perfect look. You can even add a stamped design like Mandi did here.
We can’t think of a cuter print for a kitchen wall. Elsie made her clementine stamps using craft foam and cardboard, but we’re thinking lemons would be equally good!
How to Update Planked Wood-Look Tile
If you’re not happy with your current flooring situation, remodeling doesn’t have to be the answer. As you can see from the before photo, this DIY made a huge difference in Keely’s bathroom. Here are steps to doing the same thing for your space.
We hope this gave you some DIY inspiration! Happy stenciling and stamping 🙂 -The ABM team
Those boots are fabulous!
fun to see how your styles evolved over time. still love that clementine wall! so bright and cheery. curious – did you paint that over before selling? don’t have my own walls yet but i love doing a polka dot pattern for recycled gift bags 🙂
