Indian Inlay Stencil: Outdoor Persian Rug
First up is Rebecca from the blog You’re Talking Too Much. She’s the crafty gal behind this gorgeous Indian Inlay stenciled outdoor Persian rug. I absolutely love this, don’t you? Last summer, Rebecca redid her outdoor sitting area and while she thought it looked great; it was missing something. Rebecca put her thinking cap on and decided to try stenciling her own outdoor rug to match her sitting area. Following the simple stencil steps on the back of the package, she painted a gorgeous stenciled outdoor rug. She even says, “This was one of the EASIEST projects I have ever completed.” The color of her rug also really brings together our outdoor seating area and gives it a complete look. This rug is so stunning it’s kind of hard to stop staring at it, right? Make sure you enter her giveaway here.

Chevron Stencil: DIY Throw Pillow
Lets jump on over to visit Jessica, the fabulous frugalista and home decor enthusiast behind the blog Moms4Real. Jessica explains that through a series of bed swapping in their house, her daughter ended up with a full size bed that just appeared a little bare. While she wanted to give her daughters space that finishing touch, she didn’t want to spend the moohla on those designer throw pillows all over Pinterest. Her solution? Jessica created this adorable throw pillow using our Chevron Stencil in matching colors. She tells her readers, “I love the way this pillow turned out…stenciling pillows is so easy and inexpensive…it’s one of my absolute favorite things to do!” Don’t forget to enter her giveaway here.
