Stencils are used to paint images on surfaces within your house.

They may be bought either pre-cut with an image, or you may buy a blank and use an existing object as a template to cut your own image into it. If you cut your own image, you will not be able to get as much detail as with shop-bought items, but you will be able to get a unique stencil.

To paint a stencil, you will need to buy a tin of paint.
