How to Upcycle Using Tropical Stencils

Stencil it special. Here's how to add pattern to anything.

Set a stylish summer scene with tropical stencils that upstyle items that were destined for donation.


Buy a stencil or create one using mylar or contact paper. Make polka dots from a few different-sized irregular shapes cut from contact paper.

Tropical Stencils Wall Screen


Attach the stencil to furnishing with painter's tape or low tack spray adhesive. A wall screen makes for a quick change by the pool or at the beach.


Fill your Wagner Paint Sprayer with paint and spray evenly over the stencil until covered with color.

Tropical Stencil Bins


Remove the stencil and reveal your pattern instantly. Works great on beach totes, towels, and hats. An old dressing screen brings to mind a polka dot bikini.
