Yes. Yes. You can.
You can stencil a wall with a Whiteboard Crayon.
I did. And I love it. When people come over, it’s the first thing they notice… next to the wallpapered stairs.
How to stencil a wall using a dry erase crayon:
First, you need a template.
For my stenciled crayon wall, I used this template from Jones Design Company.
Next, you have to have a Crayola Whiteboard Crayon. I bought a pack of 8 and used the white one. According to Crayola, the Bright Colors Assorted pack does have a white crayon, but I’ll add a disclaimer and say you might want to find one in person somewhere to double check.
I started at left edge on the top of the wall and traced the stencil straight down the wall. For this little nook, I used an entire crayon. It was a close run at the end, but I made it last!
And let me tell you, if you need to practice patience…
Stencil a wall.
And as you practice paitience…
And practice some more…
You’ll get REALLY good at stenciling…
or you won’t… no guarantees.
It taught me so much more than just making a pretty wall.
It taught me I don’t ever want to stencil a wall again.
Are you seriously patient? I mean… have you stenciled a wall before?
If you ever wondered how to stencil a wall using a dry erase crayon, now you know!
UPDATE: Umm… well, I guess I didn’t really learn anything because I stenciled a wall here and here… And I realized how spankin’ easy it is to stencil with a Crayon instead of paint!!! So freaking easy.
UPDATE #2: This wall has held up incredibly well. None of the stenciling has come off! I’ve even tested a small patch to see if I could wash it off, and it came off beautifully. Now if I could get Crayola to make some Whiteboard crayons with Glitter…
UPDATE #3: I made some changes recently and painted this wall black. Well, first I painted it a very dark blue (Cyberspace by Sherwin Williams) then realized it looks weird with my granite countertops and decided to paint it again Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams. Change is good, but sometimes I miss my Crayon Stenciled Wall!
