Then Use the Pen Tool (P) to draw a series of anchor points that trace the outermost line of the image. If you hold down Alt as you click, you can add extra anchor points to fine-tune your trace. With the image selected, go to Object > Path > Outline Stroke to turn it into a solid shape.

The next step is to apply a blur effect

After you have your basic shape, it’s time to give it some style. Go to Effect > Blur > Gaussian Blur and apply a radius of your choice. I used a setting of 12px. Make sure the Preview box is checked so you can see what the effect will look like before you apply it. When you’re happy with the result, click OK.

Finally, you can add your stencil to any wall in Photoshop or Illustrator; just add it as a layer with a transparency set to Multiply. That’s it, you’re done with turning your image into stencil!
