I figured since my last few stenciling projects turned out okay, I would try some more.
This time I chose a pillow. I am kind of into pillows lately, since I have done several of them in the past few months. :)
This was super easy, really.
I picked up a Martha Stewart Stencil kit, green paint & a roller from Michaels.
The stencil kit came with several other stencils, which I can't wait to use.
My friend Marissa @ Rae Gun Ramblings shared this awesome tutorial on how to recover a pillow, so I tried it out for myself.
First, I cut my fabric for the pillow cover.
I used the pillow I was recovering as my size guide.
I taped the stencil to the fabric, and lightly painted.
With stenciling, always remember that less is more. :)
After it dried, I ironed over the stencil to make it set.
Yep, it's really that easy. Why have I not stenciled more until now??
I stitched my fabric pieces together & created this cover.
And there you have it!
An easy way to freshen up an old pillow & add color to any space.
