If you’re a reader of this blog, you must know that I love pillows! I’ve made DIY placemat pillows and pillows out of cloth napkins for my home’s living room. So I was excited to try out the Paint a Pillow kits from Paint-A-Pillow. I have never stenciled a pillow before and thought it would be fun!
I picked out the Mermaid Paint-a-Pillow kit — I love the pattern! The kit came with everything I needed to stencil a pillow: a stenciling frame, a reusable pillow stencil, a 17”x 17” cotton pillow cover, a pillow insert: linen/down alternative, a mini roller and 1/2″ stencil brush, a paint tray and stirring stick, a free mini stencil and practice fabric swatch, full color instructions, and one fabric paint of my choice. Besides my kit, I also received a second paint color, some tassels and some antique silver round cone studs.
How to Stencil a Pillow
My DIY stenciled pillows were fun and easy to make! My stencil frame came with a pillow cover already inserted, so all I had to do was choose my work area — so I chose to paint outside on a small folding table. (I figure I could skip the clean up if I painted outside!) I laid some newspaper on top of my folding table and placed my stencil frame and pillow cover on top of the table and got to work!
I squirted some fabric paint on my paint tray, and rolled my mini roller until it was covered with paint, but not too saturated. I then simply rolled the paint over my stencil and pillow cover until I had completely filled in the stencil design!
This is another look at the pillows — this was a fun project!
