Stenciled Sparks Fly from these Fireplace and Mantel Décor Ideas
Good Morning, my home décor enthusiasts! It’s getting chilly outside so Cutting Edge Stencils would love to settle in near a charming fireplace. Wait, is your fireplace not looking so charming these days? No worries, my friend. We have some ideas on how you can give your fireplace a makeover and enjoy it through the wintery months. Better Homes and Gardens says that for an attention grabbing look, “The mantel and surrounding wall are integral to your fireplace design.” We couldn’t agree more! So are you ready to get toasty with stencils?
Take the lead from Stephanie and stencil some enchanting wall art to hang above your fireplace. After watching some of our stenciling videos, she selected acrylic craft paint in blue, pink and cream colors along with our Junior Mural Stencil Kit to paint her masterpiece. She says she “loves the outcome and can’t wait to complete the next project.” We love it too! We also think stenciling wall art is a great project for those who want to spruce up their fireplace without committing to painting a wall.

But if you are ready to take your fireplace makeover to the next level then here’s a project for you! Stacy the queen of DIY from the blog, Not Just a Housewife, painted this gorgeous nook above her brother’s fireplace. This space started out dull and dreary until Stacy dazzled it over. She used our Alessa Scroll Stencil and a warm butter hue to give this fireplace its toasty look!
Similar to Stacy’s project, our Pinterest pal The Staged Style also stenciled the space above the fireplace. The Staged Style used our Zamira Allover Stencil in a bold blue hue to create this fireplace accent. They believe a mantel is a great focal point within a living room and that a dramatic wall stencil in this small area can make a BIG difference. We think they might be onto something because this blue-tiful fireplace stencil is a total winner!
Andrea, one of our fab fans, designed this stunning fireplace. Rather than stencil the space above her fireplace, she chose to use our Casablanca Craft Stencil to stencil the surface surrounding her fireplace opening. You could easily replicate this look using a hue similar to Benjamin Moore’s revere pewter HC-166 and our Moroccan pattern. Awesome work, Andrea!
Sue, another one of our creative fans, stenciled an accent wall in her living room. She used our Rabat Allover Stencil and a creamy shade of beige like Benjamin Moore’s splendor AF-385. By placing the stenciled pattern on the same wall as the fireplace, she totally calls attention to its beauty. We think it looks absolutely fabulous!
