And Free Stencils

Ready to start your Thanksgiving Crafts? Just right-click on the image and select print if you’re on a PC or drag it into a document if you are on a Mac. I hope you enjoy these free stenciling patterns.

Here are a couple of ideas for using these free stencils in your Thanksgiving Decorations:

Cut these patterns out of different colors of felt and glue them on a plain or colored tablecloth. Embellish them with trim, ribbons and lace.

Of course, if you're a quilter I'm guessing your mind is racing. You can use these designs to quilt some patterns for making tablecloths, napkins, table runners, seat cushions...Well, you get the idea.

These free stencils will look great painted on some colorful cloth napkins. For more about how that works, you should read this article on Homemade Christmas Crafts. After all Thanksgiving is all about the feast, right? Why not spruce up the table with some very unique hand painted art napkins?

Wait! Don’t just print your stencils from this page and leave. You need to check out the Holiday Crafts Section for many more fun projects.

Here's a quick stenciling tip: I like to cover the top side of paper stencils with a clear coat like clear shelf liner or contact paper before I cut out the openings. This way I can use them again and again. After painting with them, you can clean them with a damp cloth.

The First Thanksgiving in Stencils

Downloadable paper stencils have a few other advantages. You can adjust the size of your paper stencil to fit the size of your project. Just take the page to a copier and reduce or enlarge.

Open sections of a stencil are called islands. These are the areas that allow color to be applied on the surface under the stencil. Bridges are the stencil material that separates the islands and keeps the shape of a stencil. These areas block color or paint from reaching the surface.

Well, obviously, they are perfect for the little ones to color too! Well, enjoy these free Thanksgiving Crafts stencils! I hope they have inspired you to get started right away making art with stencils.
