You can make art for your home that reflects the latest trends and it’s very affordable. Tropical leaves are also on-trend and our new Stencil1 2-in-1 Monstera Tropical Leaf stencil was great for this easy DIY. Tip: Save the stencil cut-outs! Keep reading and you’ll see why!

Start off with a few small, plain wood panels.

This powder pink color is everywhere right now, so that was our base color. We mixed the color and painted our panels.

For more variety, we added a strip of painter’s tape diagonally across on of the panels and painted one of sides pink.

Metallics are still trending, so we also added some lines of metallic using painters tape.

Using the new Monstera Tropical Leaf stencil, we painted the leaf a nice dark green for a interesting contrast to the powder pink base.

To create something a little less predictable, we painted half of the leaf by taping off a part of it.

Save the cut-out! Using the cut-out of the stencil, we placed it on the panel that we only painted half a leaf and added tape to keep it in place. We painted over the cut-out in order to get the negative image of the leaf!

Using a combination of the stencil and its cut-out calls for endless eclectic designs. Mix them up along with different colors and metallics. All you need is a little tape! The rest is in your control.
