Create Beautiful DIY Accent Pillows In a Snap With Paint-A- Pillow
Good morning, my crafty friends. That cold weather is creeping up on us in Northern NJ and if you’re in the same boat as the Moms at Cutting Edge Stencils then you are looking for crafty ideas to keep the kiddos entertained when they can’t go outside to play. We have the perfect DIY project for you! We’d like to introduce our sister company, Paint-A-Pillow. Crafting a pillow with Paint-A-Pillow is fun, easy, and kid proof. That means that Mom can pretty much sit back and relax while her little crafter paints away. Take a look at today’s pillow inspiration that was completed by a seven year old and her mom…
We’d like to welcome back Evey, the clever crafter behind the blog Sweet Song Bird by Evey’s Creations. Evey loves DIY projects and has worked with our stencils in the past so she jumped at the chance to try painting a pillow. She ordered the Charlotte Paint-A-Pillow kit along with an extra pillow cover, fabric paint in neutral gray, and rhinestones. We’re going to give you a quick glimpse at her stenciled accent pillows and then we’ll fill you in on how you can recreate the look!
So pretty, right? We love them too, so we’re going to spill the beans on how she crafted them. Evey ordered a Paint-A- Pillow kit which included everything she needed to make one accent pillow. She commented, “It all comes in one kit for you. You can order accessories, even a rhinestone heat gun right on their website!”
Evey opened up her box and was ready to go. She quickly realized this was a great project for her daughter. Evey helped her daughter pour the Jacquard fabric paint into a foam tray. She used a dense foam roller to paint the beautiful lace-like pattern.
** If you’re recreating this at home, be careful not to overload the roller with paint. Roll off the excess paint onto a folded paper towel until the roller looks almost dry. The key to stenciling is using as little paint as possible. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed and smudge.
Once the entire pillow cover was painted, Evey peeled back the metal tabs holding the stencil in place and cleaned off the stencil in the sink. Then she was ready for the fun part, embellishing! Evey warmed up her hot glue gun and adhered sparkly rhinestones to the pillow.
When the pillow covers were complete, she stuffed the inserts inside. Ready to see how it all turned out? Evey commented this about the stencil kit, “I am TRULY in love with it.” We’re happy to hear that she enjoyed making these.
