The Chinese New Year starts on Saturday 28th January, this year it is the year of the Rooster so here at The Stencil Studio we thought we would put together a collection of stencil designs to celebrate this event.

It is one of the most colourful events in the calendar and people take to the streets both in China and across the world. With an explosion of light and sound involving bell ringing, firecrackers and traditional lion dances.

People decorate their houses with red paper cutouts, banners and special New Year paintings during the festive period. This year is also likely to see Rooster themed decorations, maybe even stencils!

Families gather together on New Year's Eve and clean their houses to sweep away bad fortune. On New Years Day it is traditional to give red envelopes stuffed with 'lucky money' to children. However, some teens now even have red envelope apps so the money can be given digitally.

Those born under the sign of the Roosters are described as active, amusing, popular, healthy, outspoken, honest, loyal, talkative and charming. They are also known to enjoy the spotlight - but can be vain and boastful.

Famous faces born in the Year of the Rooster include Prince Philip, Serena Williams, Beyonce and Roger Federer. 

Country Cockerel Stencil - Size XL

If you were born in the years 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993 and 2005 then you are also known as a Rooster. Maybe you should add a few Rooster inspired stencil designs to your home and join in with the Chinese New Year celebrations!

Happy New Year & Happy Stencilling!
