Hi Friends……I have a really fun project for you today. The Create and Share DIY Challenge is a monthly blogger challenge where Stephanie @casa watkins invites her blogging friends to create a new project using the same item. This month, Cutting Edge Stencils has partnered in the challenge.
Cutting Edge Stencils supplied each of us (16 Bloggers) with one of their stencil pillow kits. The only rule was that we were to use the stencil and the rest was up to us. Cutting Edge Stencils and Paint-A-Pillow have this amazing line of Halloween/Fall stencils that you can use to design your own tote or pillow.
I picked the Scared Black Cat stencil and when it arrived I was so impressed with the packaging and that it had everything you need.
Here is how I made my pillow:
This DIY Designer Pillow from Cutting Edge Stencils comes assembled and ready to paint.
The kit contains a paint roller, fabric paint, stencil brush, paint tray, and accessories.
Also included in the kit is a sample piece of fabric and a small stencil so you can practice before you begin painting.
I started with just a little paint on the roller. A drier roller or brush works best. Just keep adding additional layers until you get the desired color.
Let the paint dry completely. Once the black paint was dry I then stenciled the eyes and mouth of the cat.I decided to use a brown burlap type ribbon to make a fence. I cut strips to the correct length and pinned in place, and hot glued to the pillow.
After you have completed your pillow you remove from frame and the middle cardboard section folds and you can remove the pillow cover. Open the pillow insert that is included in the kit and insert into the pillow. I love the quality of the pillow insert also.
Step back and admire your creation. This is a fabulous stencil kit. It is great that you can reuse the stencil later for another project if you like. Just clean the paint off the stencil with water and store until you are ready to use again.
Cutting Edge Stencils have lots of stencil patterns to choose from. The Paint A Pillow selection has so many beautiful styles to select from. Be sure to check out all that Cutting Edge Stencils have to offer. I really enjoyed this project and can’t wait to work with Cutting Edge Stencils again.
Thanks for stopping by. Now its time to check out all the other fabulous pillow designs. You will love all of them.
