Everybody, irrespective of age and gender, enjoys participating in Halloween activities with full enthusiasm and zeal. One such extremely popular activity is face painting! With numerous festive activities, the best way to save time and yet enjoy the thrill of dressing up is to use stencils. What further adds to the popularity of stencils is that they can be customized to experiment with different costumes. We, at Buzzle, give you some interesting stencils that you can download and use to create your own Halloween look.

Do It Yourself

While using these stencils, make sure that you use sponge instead of a brush to paint the larger area. Outline the design to highlight the features, apply dark colors first and wait for the previous layer to dry before applying the next layer.

  • Acetate or polyester
  • Knife and scissors
  • Marker
  1. To begin with, place the stencil material (acetate or polyester) on the downloaded design. Draw the outline with a marker.
  2. Place this acetate paper on a hard surface to make the next step of cutting safe and easy.
  3. Cut the outline of the design (along the dotted lines), using a scissor or a sharp knife. While cutting stencils, keep in mind to cut only the area that you want to be painted on the face.
  4. Do not leave any sharp edges as it might hurt while painting. Once you are done with cutting the necessary parts, you have your stencils ready to use.
