How do you adjust the design repeat of a stencil for the corner of a room?
To adjust a stencil design to fit the corners of your room, on one wall you might need to stretch and on the other to squeeze the design. Try to stretch or squeeze the motif when stenciling the final corner where the design is to meet. If that's not practical, another option is to add a less dominant design motif, such as an acorn, a leaf, or a twig, in the final corner to finish the design.
To stretch the design: To ease the design into the corner so a major design element fits on the adjoining wall, stretch the last 304 repeats by increasing the space between design elements 1/2" to 1" per repeat.
Squeezing the design: Decrease the spacing between design elements 1/4" to 1/2" so that the design element that would have gone into the corner is pulled back on the wall before the corner.
