What’s In A Paint-A-Pillow Party Kit
Well the party pack includes everything you and your guests need to create 6 beautiful DIY designer accent pillows.
- 6 Paint-A-Pillow Stenciling Frames (pat pend.)
- 6 Reusable Pillow Stencils (your choice)
- 6 17″x17″ Cotton Pillow Covers with cardboard insert (white or natural)
- 6 premium pillow inserts (linen with down alternative)
- 6 Textile Color Paints (select your colors)
- 6 Dense Foam Mini Rollers
- 6 Professional 1/2″ Stencil Brushes
- 6 Paint Trays and Stirring Sticks
- 6 Free mini Stencils and practice fabric swatches
- Illustrated instructions
Here’s how you get started. First you have to get your besties on the phone and select a date. Once you have the date, each one of the attendees should visit the Paint-A-Pillow website (www.paintapillow.com) to pick their pillow stencil, type of cover, and paint color. Then place your order and your party pack will be on its way!
The directions are simple but if you want to be extra prepared, watch these videos before your guests arrive.
Next you’re going to have to set up a space for your crafting party. A large dining room table or multiple folding tables will do the trick.
The kits come with everything you need to complete the project including a stencil brush and roller. When painting the pillow a single color, a dense foam roller is preferred.
A small stencil brush is useful when painting multiple colors on a pillow. In this picture, we have several friends working together to finish up a pillow project.
Once the pillows are painted, the guest can undo the clasps that are holding the stencil in the frame to reveal the pretty painted design. This tends to be the fun part, as guests squeal in delight, as their stenciled patterns are revealed!
If you have the space, set up a mini drying section using a free standing fan. It doesn’t have to be glamorous but it will help speed up the drying process. While the pillows are drying, take a snack break and enjoy this extra time with your friends. When the pillow cover is dry, if you purchased embellishments, like rhinestones or studs, then you can add them now.
Finally, stuff your pillow inserts into your stenciled covers. Now count how many happy friends you have smiling around you. See we told you they would enjoy this craft session!
