Modern and Chic Stenciled Pillow

Have you noticed the decorating trend that uses arrows as the main focus? Chelsea from makinghomebase offers a tutorial on how to create a stenciled throw pillow using arrows as the theme.


Drop cloth canvas was the fabric she chose to create her pillow because it has a weight and density that will be the perfect background for the paint. Chelsea used freezer paper on which to print her design and she explains just how to do this. Once the stencil is cut out, the freezer paper can be ironed onto the fabric where it will stay firmly until the painting is finished. Fabric paint is applied using a small foam brush. The paint should be lightly dabbed onto the fabric. If the color isn’t intense enough, more light coats of paint can be applied.


Once the paint has completely dried, the freezer paper can be peeled off leaving a perfect painted arrow.
