The snow is melting, the days are getting warmer and this can only mean one thing – it’s time for Spring Projects! Most of our blossoming gardens are abuzz with bees and we thought we’d honor these fashionable flyers with a few stencil ideas to bee inspired by. The bee motif has become a stylish décor pattern and Royal Design Studio has quite a few chic stencil designs to choose from. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite bee-inspired stenciling projects from our friends to show you what all the buzz is about!
Cupcakes & Crowbars used the Bee Sweet Bonnie Christine Removable Wallpaper to add color and pattern to the back of her kids school storage cabinets. You can also spy our Talk Block Chalkboard Vinyl Wall Decals so that messages can easily be left day in and day out. We think it’s the bee’s knees!
The Harvey Family used the French Bee Trellis Stencil as a stenciled accent wall pattern for their newly decorated guest room. If you’d like to see another example of this stencil bee-auty in action, check out the stenciled bedroom feature wall by So Much Better With Age, too.
The very creative Tisa from the Just My Little Mess blog wanted a fun and inspiring stenciled office wall and she got it using our Honeycomb Allover Wall Stencil, the Pearl Oyster Stencil Crème and a stencil brush.
Smaller projects, such as furniture and décor accents, are fantastic surfaces for a bee-inspired motif. The French Bee Trellis Stencil was paired with Chalk Paint® to paint and stencil the tall dresser while The Buzz All over Bee Stencil was used on a rustic, painterly tray.
The very creative Lisa Ard of Sweet South Cottage & Farms, used the bee motif that comes with the Honeycomb Allover Furniture Stencil to stencil an actual beehive. She and her husband have a few in progress – the bees themselves are settling in in a few weeks. We think they’ll love their new home!
The Buzz Alllover Bee Stencil features a classic Napoleonic Bee motif repeated in a grid pattern. It looks so fresh here – imagine it in a sweet nursery!
Spring parties and events are also a perfect time to incorporate stencils! Celebrating Everyday Life stenciled a table runner and napkins for their Queen Bee pattern luncheon table.
A bee pattern, including the honeycomb motif, attracts both traditional and contemporary design enthusiasts as it’s a design that can easily fit many design styles and color schemes. Its refined, classic and approachable, virtually perfect for any décor surface. If you enjoyed these Royal Design Studio stencil ideas, be sure not to forget pinning them to your boards and sharing them with your friends. Of course, if you have your own project you’d like to buzz about, send it in to us – we love to share!
