Royal Design Studio is one of my go-to places for clients who want a wallpaper look without the hassle. They sent me their Cane Basketweave stencil to try out. It is such a classic, preppy pattern. I love how it looks on the walls, but I can't paint my rental walls. So I thought it would be fun to try it out on some holiday wrapping paper.
I used gold heavy-body acrylic paint and a foam brush. The stencil is nice and thick, so there wasn't much seepage. Simple, but much snazzier than my usual brown craft paper wrapping. I love the pattern.
Here are some of my other favorite RDS stencils:
Don't these look like high-end wallpaper? Stenciling is so much cheaper and customizable. And RDS has tons of different options, from totally traditional to modern.
Cheap and awesome. Love that!
