Melissa: maybe this will help
Our screen porch floor is somewhat uneven with board gaps and with some knots. While it could be stenciled I should think a careful choice of stencil might be considered due to the uneven nature of my flooring. Something to think about maybe yours is perfectly flat? In my situation I think a outdoor rug might be a better choice.
That’s a great project idea! Do you have questions about it?
Here's some god info about how to do it yourself.
He Melissa, hope this helps you stencil your floor.

Hi! After a good cleaning, I would use a product like Kilz to prime it (if you are going with a color, Lowe's and Home Depot will tint the Kilz to the color you are using). Then use a good quality floor paint. I like two coats of the floor paint. A quart of floor paint in your stencil color can then be started. Plan it out, to see how your stencil will work with your floor. I sketch the area out in sections. For example, your stencil is 12"x12". You have an 8'x10' floor. Do you want to center the design? Do it in rows? Are you going to cover the entire floor like tile? I actually put the design onto a piece of paper or cardboard the size of the stencil and move it around the floor to figure out what I am doing (I am very visual). If you start and don't like it, it's only paint, and you can use the base color to cover your oops. I 've done this, so I know. Personally, most of the time, I like to work out from the center, but, go with the look you want. I like to have more than one of the stencil, so I can keep going if I have to stop and clean a messy stencil. When you are done, and it has dried thoroughly (check your label, but, it's often a few hours or a day or so). Apply a clear drying sealer meant for floors. Time your coats of sealer. Check if it is recommended to sand lightly between coats. I like 4 coats or more on a floor because of the wear and tear. Plus all that work should be protected! Good luck and stay safe!
That would look nice but a real area rug would soften and warm up the area. The another big thing for me is how soft an area rug makes the space and no splinters from a wooden floor either.

Hi Melissa, hope this helps you out,
Very do-able. Just work slowly with the stencil to avoid bleeding.
