DIY Stenciled Fall Pillow!

When you're roaming the aisles of the store and you see a place mat that looks like a stencil and inspiration strikes....this is what happens.

I saw this place mat for $1.98 made of soft vinyl.  Hello ready made stencil, nice to meet you.

  • Mix two parts chalk paint with one part medium (totally eyeballed it) to create fabric paint. 
  • Tape place mat to pillow cover
  • Trace outside with a pencil
  • Stipple paint on to pillow cover
  • Remove stencil and paint the outline of the leaf
  • Heat set (I put a kitchen towel over it so I didn't heat the paint directly, just to be safe).
  • Insert pillow form
  • Done :) 

Please forgive the grainy photos, it was so hard to get good lighting and I was being impatient and wanted to share this project!  Enjoy your day friends!
