What you need


  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Saw
  • Staple gun
  • Laser level, optional


  • Drop cloth
  • Plywood
  • Scrap fleece fabric, we used an old sweatshirt
  • Paint
  • Scrap paper

How to do it

Step 1 Cut Plywood

Lay the drop cloth on the floor to catch any paint drips. Choose the desired shape for your stamp and draw it onto the plywood using a pencil and ruler. We chose a triangle. Use your saw to cut out the shape.

Step 2 Attach Fabric

Cover the wood shape with fleece material. Secure fabric with a staple gun so one side is taut and wrinkle-free. Extra fabric bunched on the back serves as a good handle to grab onto while you stamp.

Step 3 Stamp Pattern

Apply paint to the smooth side of the stamp. Wipe off excess paint on scrap paper. Press stamp onto wall in desired pattern. To achieve stamped columns like ours when painting accent walls, use a tape measure to mark evenly spaced columns. Using a pencil, lightly draw a straight line up the middle of each column. When you stamp, the middle point of the triangle should sit on the line. You can also use a laser level to make the straight line.
