Paint-A-Pillow makes it easy to customize your accent pillows so you can get the color you want in the pattern you love. Oh, and it’s practically a fool proof craft! Come check out the latest pillow project featuring our popular Hourglass Paint-A-Pillow.
We’d like to introduce House on the Way. Leslie loves a good creative project so she instantly fell in love with our Paint-A-Pillow kit. She mentions, “One of my favorite things to share is a great product and when that product allows you to show your creativity and it’s easy.” Leslie browsed the site and chose the Hourglass Paint-A-Pillow kit with a natural pillow cover, Jacquard fabric paint, and black tassels. She wanted to create pillows that coordinated with her red damask couch. Here is a sneak peek at what she created:, the clever DIYer and decorating enthusiast behind the blog
We love her stenciled pillow, don’t you? Now let’s walk through the steps on how to recreate it. Leslie opened her Paint-A-Pillow box and was happy to see it came with all of the supplies she needed.
She placed her items in her crafting space and was ready to start her project. Leslie comments, “If you notice in the picture below, the pillow cover is placed inside the Paint-A-Pillow frame and the stencil is placed on top of it. Genius!”
Leslie poured her black fabric paint into a foam tray. Then she rolled the dense foam roller in the paint. She was careful to not overload the brush because this would cause the paint to bleed under the stencil.
As she was painting Leslie said, “The best tip I can give you is to follow their recommendation on how much paint to put on your roller (very little) and definitely use a light touch when rolling.”
Once her pillow was painted, she lifted the stencil to reveal her pretty pattern. Then she was ready to paint her second pillow.
Here are Leslie’s Hourglass painted pillows.
Leslie had this to say about her stencil project, “I love my new set of designer style pillows. It was such a fun, quick and easy project.”
