How-to: Put a Pattern on Plain Pillows
HGTV Magazine has you everything you need!
- 18" x 18" pillow covers (we went with pink)
- fabric paint (any color)
Make a stencil: On the matte side of a sheet of freezer paper, draw or trace a design. Use a crafts knife to cut out the stencil, creating negative space where the paint will go. (Or buy a premade stencil.)
Iron the pillow cover and lay it flat on a protected surface. Put the stencil on top, shiny side down. Iron it on.
Using a foam pouncer, fill in the stencil with crafts paint. Remove the stencil while the paint is still slightly wet. Let dry, then repeat until the design is complete.
