Creating Scorpio Stencils

If you want to give your room an astrological slant, then you should think about stencils that match your star sign, or the start signs of the people in your family. Scorpio stencils are not difficult to come by, so if you would like to paint your room with a Scorpio design, then you can do that.

Some of these stencils will come with an astrological portion of the stencil that creates a little frame around the picture itself. You do not have to use that part of the stencil – just omit it when you are adding your paint or stencil paste to the wall. However, you might also find that part of the stencil is an addition to your design that you want to make – that will make the stencil look as though you have tiles.
