Below you’ll find a number of templates for stencils depicting common symbols of some of the world’s religions: The Bahá’í Faith, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Shinto, and Sikhism. Print out the templates at the desired proportions and cut them out onto heavy paper such as bristol board. Some of the more complicated symbols may be better suited to cutting out with a pen-knife or utility knife instead of scissors.
In our class, we prepared nine-pointed stars to apply the stencils to; these were then applied to the wall with tape to create a colourful display in the classroom. They could also be used as decorations on walls or windows, or as part of mobiles.
