DIY Arrow Stenciled Pillow Tutorial
Welcome back, my craft friends. Cutting Edge Stencils is kicking off the week with some new accent pillows! We love how accent pillows can easily freshen up the home decor of any space. Let’s take a look at today’s inspirational arrow themed pillow project using Paint-A-Pillow.
We’d also like to welcome back Tiffany, the crafty queen behind the blog Making the World Cuter. Tiffany has used Cutting Edge Stencils for several of her home decor stencil projects so it made perfect sense to reach out to her about Paint-A-Pillow. She browsed the large collection of patterns on the site and chose the Archery Paint-A-Pillow kit with white pillow covers, Jacquard Fabric Paint, and metal studs. We’re going to give you a quick glimpse of the gorgeous arrow stenciled accent pillow and then spill the beans on how to recreate it.
Tiffany was super excited to receive her kit in the mail and said “I love getting giant boxes on my front porch. Especially when they are packaged cute like this!”
Once Tiffany had her kit, she opened it up and placed her items in her crafting space. Then she drafted this cutie as a painting assistant!
Tiffany poured her fabric paint into a foam tray. She chose to paint the arrow pattern in a turquoise and neutral gray. Then she rolled the dense foam roller in the paint.
Tiffany was careful to not overload the roller because this would cause the paint to bleed under the stencil.
When the pillow was completely painted, Tiffany lifted the metal tabs to release the stencil and reveal the pretty pattern.
Tiffany didn’t stop there! She chose to embellish the pillows with square metal studs placed on the bottom of the gray arrows. Tiffany comment, “I LOVE the little added fun this adds to the pillow. A little extra texture and style.”
Tiffany had this to say about her painted pillows, “I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out, it looks so professional and cute! If you are interested in making some beautiful designer pillows I would highly recommend this fun company! ”
Here is a close-up of her pretty pillow!
