Painting walls using a stencils is in fact a very old tradition, one that has been revived recently with the new types of stencils that are a far cry from the old paper types. These don't tear, are durable and can be reused over and over again, since after usage you simply clean them.

And let's face it wall stenciling 'the old way' is fun.

I love wall stencils by Cutting Edge. They have many designs and shapes which can truly change the look of your walls. Here I hope to display a few interesting ones that caught my attention.

The first is Morrocan Dreams. Check out the images above, don't they make gorgeous wall decorations? All you need is a paint color of your choice and a bit of time to do the stenciling work - which personally I find it's fun. And then the result will be really worth it. And let's face it, these stencils are not expensive at all, and considering that they are reusable, you do get a real bargain there.

The stencils are made of hard plastic that don't break or frail, are very easy to clean afterwards and you also get two small stencils for the top and bottom of your walls that fit just perfectly. Recommended.

I love this stencil above all, I think it says 'Oriental' quite strongly at a first glance. Add a gorgeous Oriental decorative mirror on an elegant small table and you're set for a very exclusive design in your room or foyer. The seamless patterns are truly beautiful making a very pleasing to the eye design.

The stencil comes with two smaller ones (for the top and bottom area of the wall) and each is made of hard plastic that will last you for a long time. Durable, easy to use and easy to wash, it's also very cheap (currently at less than $50). Really beautiful for giving a modern look to a room.

Here is another Morrocan style stencil for home walls from Cutting Edge that I love. It's simple and gives a modern yet classic look to the walls - also depending on which color you're using to paint the walls with.

The stencil comes with the usual 2 smaller ones for top and bottom, they're all hard plactic that will last long, easy to use and clean and at a very reasonable price. It's great not only for painting the entire wall, but also for accents and even painting furniture (now that's an interesting idea!)

Now for something a bit different. This flower stencil is adorable not only in the parents room but also in the nursery room. Just change the color to pink and you're all set for the baby room. It is a rather run and playful stencil that makes the room look not only modern but one that doesn't take itself too serious. Modern, fresh and airy homes will enjoy this type of stencil more than the traditional, classic and austere style houses.

The stencils are made of hard plastic that will not break with ease. Reusable, easy to use and clean, it's also great at the price offered.

Arabesque style wall stencils are nothing new, and they've been popular from the first one made available years ago. There is just something to this curvy and modern style that gives an elegant, playful and lovely look to any room. Many teen girls love this as well and they make it the design of choice for their own walls.

Easy to use, clean and re-use over and over again, these stencils only need a quick wash with water and soap to be ready for a next application.

Lovely and delicate, they make beautiful painted walls for a romantic and cottage style décor. They are very soft looking, nothing overpowering, yet elegant enough to warrant a special mention. Easy to use, can be washed for later use. Also if you don't want to use the whole stencil, you can easily cover that part an use only the bits you want.

      Fun for me especially to see the Marrakech wall. I once carved a lino block with that design and put it on fabric.

      Paint stencils for walls are pretty cool alternative to wall papers.

      And they do look much more classy than decoration made by kids with their color pencils;)
