Little Wild Poppies Stencil


NEW! Delicate wild poppy motifs
Small single sheet stencil

The Little Wild Poppies Stencil is a beautiful new addition to our poppy stencil collection. Inspired by wild Welsh Poppies that grow extensively in cottage gardens, along stone walls and between cracks in paving stones, that create a  warm bloom of yellow colour throughout the summer months. The Little Wild Poppies Stencil is the first to be released from our forthcoming new stencil range ‘Wild Botanicals – wild flowers of the hedgerow and woodland of the Brecon Beacons’.

This charming little wild flower stencil depicts 3 poppies swaying in the breeze, with 2 flower buds, a tapering seed pod and detailed foliage – all on one small stencil sheet. Perfect for stencilling on soft furnishings, clothing and home accessories, as well as greeting cards and wrapping paper for all occasions.

Stencil in natural wild poppy colours, or bright contemporary colours, or silhouette style for simple impact. Stencil as a single motif or repeated randomly or in rows or columns. Easy to use small one sheet stencil – see size and layout specifications below.
