Stencil Patterns Make Crafting Botanical Accent Pillows Easy!
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends. If you are looking to craft custom accent pillows then you have come to the right place! Our accent pillow stencil kits make crafting custom accent pillows super easy. Today we are sharing how to craft botantical accent pillows using stencils.
We’d like to welcome back Maria, the clever crafter behind the blog Simple Nature Decor Blog. Maria admits she has an obsession with botanicals. Recently she participated in the One Room Challenge that is organized by Linda from Calling It Home. The purpose of the ORC is to have DIY bloggers put their creativity, perseverance and patience to test by completing a room makeover in six short weeks. Maria jumped at the chance to participate in this fun decorating challenge and chose to makeover her laundry room with a botanical-inspired look. She planned to use fresh white hues, natural wood, and botanical prints. What better way to incorporate botanical patterns into her home decor than with accent pillows!
The first thing she did was browse our accent pillow kits for the perfect botanical patterns. Maria fell in love with the Bermuda Breeze and Fern designs. Our accent pillow stencil kits come with everything needed to complete this easy DIY project including stencil tools. Maria simply selected a white pillow cover and Jacquard Fabric Paint in Apple Green and Emerald Green.
Maria set up her supplies and started stenciling. The stencil design fits securely on the frame so no tape is needed to hold it in place. Then paint the botanical stencil using a dense foam roller. Maria poured the paint onto a foam tray and then lightly coated the roller. 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 her pillow covers were painted, Maria placed the pillow inserts into the covers and decorated her laundry room. Are you ready to see how her crafty project turned out? Here it is!
Maria had this to say about her stencil project, “Created an oasis?in unexpected location…the laundry room!” We would love to spend loads of time in this laundry room!
