Cotton is a wonder material, produced by nature and used by us in so many different ways. The biggest use of cotton is in our clothes and bedding, but we also use cotton in our furniture and there are many industrial uses. Think book bindings, medical supplies, and zipper tapes. And all of this from the soft puffy white stuff that grows on a plant. Cotton is truly amazing and quite beautiful in its natural setting. To bring that natural cotton to you, we have created our Cotton stencil.
This stencil design shows cotton growing on the plant, in its fullness and ready to be picked. It's beautiful and simple and can bring life to many DIY projects. With our range of stencil sizes, you can easily find the right size for your needs.
Use our smallest stencil size to make handmade greeting cards or create a wall border. Go a little bigger and create stunning stencil art on canvas, wood, or metal. You can even paint it large on a wall or window to make it the centerpiece of a room's decor. And you can combine this design with any of our other Nature stencils, such as our Lavender stencil. We laser cut the Cotton stencil in the following sizes:
- 5” x 6”
- 5” x 11”
- 18” x 12”
- 24” x 18”
- 36” x 24”
- 48” x 32”
- 55” x 35”
Besides the right stencil size, you do need one other thing to paint this design anywhere you want – the right paint for the medium. Once you have this, any surface is fair game. Get a soft off-white for the cotton balls and a nice brown for the stem and you are ready to rock and roll.
Plus, painting is so easy, it will take just a few minutes from setup to cleanup. Simply secure the stencil, paint, and remove it for a perfect image. Then clean the stencil with warm, soapy water and you can tuck it away until you need it again.
