Create DIY Winter Accent Pillows Using Snowflake Stencils
Good morning, my crafty friends. By now your holiday decor has been taken down and stashed away until next year. Does your living room feel like it’s missing something? Decorating your home with winter themed decor is an easy way to add pops of color and pattern to keep your space sparkling long after the holidays have sizzled. Today Cutting Edge Stencils is handing over the blog to our sister company, Paint-A-Pillow. Come see how one of our favorite bloggers used the Snowflakes Paint-A-Pillow kit to glam up her home for winter.
We’d like to welcome back Kerri, the creative sweetheart behind the blog Two of a Kind Working on A Full House. About a year ago, Kerri caught our eye when she shared her Anna Damask stenciled dining room.
Should we give you a minute to pick your jaw up off the ground? It’s gorgeous and memorable which is why we reached out to Kerri to see if she’d like to try Paint-A-Pillow. DIY accent pillows that can be created while the kiddos nap, of course she said yes! Kerri ordered the Snowflakes Paint-A-Pillow kit with a white pillow cover, Jacquard Paint in sky blue and neutral gray, rhinestones, and gray designer tassels. First, we’ll give you a quick glimpse of her pretty stenciled accent pillow and then we’ll fill you in on the details.
We love the winter blues and snowflake combination! Now let’s see how you can recreate it.
Kerri was so excited when her Paint-A-Pillow kit was delivered that she quickly opened it up on her counter.
After reading through the simple instructions that were included in the kit, she was ready to start painting.
For this project, Kerri chose to paint the snowflake design in neutral gray and sky blue using a dense foam roller. Here she is painting half the snowflakes in gray.
** 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, she peeled back the metal tabs holding the stencil in place to reveal her painted pillow!
Be sure to clean the stencil off in a sink so that it can be used again for another pillow. Kerri created two snowflake stenciled accent pillows.
When the pillow cover was dry, Kerri was ready to embellish it with rhinestones and tassels. She used clear glue to adhere the rhinestones to the snowflake pattern.
And there you have it! That’s how she created this super stylish, winter- themed accent pillow.
