This bumper theme pack, with 22 different wisteria motifs is perfect for ‘growing your own design’ to fit all spaces – great for stunning decorative flourishes to walls and linens.
The Large Wisteria Theme Pack Stencil can also be used to add extra wisteria branches and details to our beautiful Wisteria Blossom Bough Stencil (see Wisteria Overview below). See techniques below if you are just starting out with this stencil.
Above top – the different motifs of the Large Wisteria Theme Pack Stencil clustered in a hanging group, stencilled on high quality linen panel in Motif Fabric Paints Bright Purple, Cobalt Blue, Leaf Green, Light Lime, Turquoise Green and Terracotta. This effect is stencilled with our Stencil Sponges.
Above – close up detail of the stencilled linen panel. Stencilling onto fabric is easy. Apply repositionable spray adhesive to the reverse of the stencil, lay the stencil onto your fabric with a protective sheet of paper in between the layers of cloth, and stencil with our Fabric Paints and Stencil Sponges. Iron on the reverse side so the paint becomes fast and you are ready to wear! (Fabric Paints come with full instructions.)
Above – the Large Wisteria Theme Pack is a dream for the experienced stenciller, as it can be adapted in so many ways to create a range of different effects. The different motifs can be used to create groupings of densely clustered flowers and leaves and more sparsely covered twigs and branches to emulate the natural growing patterns of the wisteria vine.
Wisteria Range Overview
For a large fixed flowering wisteria bough see the beautiful Wisteria Blossom Bough Stencil and for a simpler, easy to use wisteria stencil see Small Wisteria Theme Pack, both of which can be used in conjunction with this stencil. All three wisteria stencils can be used together. The flowers and leaves of all three wisteria designs are on the same scale, so can be intermixed. Small and Large Theme Packs refers to the size of the stencil sheets and number of motifs in each pack.
Above – the different motifs of the Large Wisteria Theme Pack stencilled around the oak beams of a barn conversion window, and on a linen blind, giving elegant interest to an otherwise plain space. The motifs of this theme pack lend themselves to being stencilled around doors and windows in this way, climbing in any chosen direction.
Above – this effect brings a little of the outside inside, echoing the colours of nature. Walls stencilled in French Lavender, Forget-me-not (flowers), Ash Green, Verbena, Woodland (leaves and tendrils), Mocha and Chocolat Stencil Paints (branches). Linen blind stencilled in Motif Fabric Paints Bright Purple, Cobalt Blue, Light Lime, Leaf Green and Turquoise Green.
Tips for stencilling this stencil. To create this effect with the Large Wisteria Theme Pack, create a framework of branches and twigs, stencilling these first in your chosen colours, then add the combined flower and leaf motifs a little above the branches. Then add the individual flower and leaf motifs, placing the flowers either on their own or in clusters around the other motifs to create the thick opulent flowering so common in climbing wisteria in bloom. Finally add the tendrils sporadically around the design to emulate new growth.
Above – when stencilling the wisteria flowers in this theme pack use Stencil Sponges to first stencil the stems and stalks in the centre of the flower bunches and then add the flowers, stencilling in two or three colours to add extra dimension. Use the same techniques for the leaves stencilling the stalks first in brown or a contrasting green and then the tapering leaf shapes in two shades – again to add extra depth to the design.

Use Stencil Sponges to blend the different colours in the flowers and leaves, using the same techniques as described above.

Stencil the branches, twigs, leaves and flowers in one or two colours each to create extra dimension to the design and a sense of light and dark.
