How to Stencil DIY Cement Cinder Block Planters

Aren’t cinder blocks used for keeping that old beat up car without wheels off the ground? Not anymore! Cinder blocks are CHEAP, but can look anything but if you put a little pretty pattern on them. Get creative with your outdoor gardening by turning these into stenciled succulent planters! With Royal Design Studio Stencils, you can show off your crafting and gardening skills in every corner.


Step 1: Place and secure the stencil onto one side of your cinder block with painter’s tape. If you are using multiple stencil designs for each side of the block, mask off the areas you don’t want to stencil.

Step 2: Load a stencil brush with paint and offload the excess onto a paper towel before stenciling.

Step 3: Stencil the design using a medium pressure circular motion.

Step 4: Either remove and reposition the stencil using the built in registration marks that help you align it perfectly every time, OR remove the stencil and start stenciling with the other stencil design in the previously masked off area.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 1 through 4 until each of your cinder block planters and each of their sides are stenciled.
