I found the perfect solution for matching pillows to your home decor, a Paint A Pillow Stencil Kit.
Are you tired of going to stores trying to find pillows with the right color tone or design to go with your chair, sofa or bedding? It does take a lot of time and trial and error. The solution is to stencil your pillows in the colors you need and the design you love.
If that happens to you or if you want a custom design to your pillows, you will love Cutting Edge Stencils Paint a Pillow Kit. Plus stenciling is a creative way to decorate on a budget.
Psst! I have a $50 stencil giveaway at the bottom of this post so don’t forget to enter!
I have never done a project like this before and was nervous, but so excited to be doing this pillow. I’ve been working on the front room for some time painting walls, building an entrance and I recently painted our dining room table. I also picked up this little blue chair for the front room.
My dark blue Pheasant pillow that I love needed a companion. Since I like birds, bird houses and bird cages this design was perfect.
The nice folks at Cutting Edge Stencils provided me with all the supplies for my pillow, but this is 100% my own opinion.
STENCIL PAINT-A-PILLOW KIT
The Paint A Pillow kit makes it easy peasy. Everything you need comes in the kit like it is shown above.
I chose to do a pillow, but Cutting Edge Stencils has a huge stencil supply to shop. They have “trendy wall patterns including Moroccan stencils, Craft and Furniture stencils, Damask stencils and nature-inspired Tree and Flower stencil designs. With so many beautiful designs to choose from, they’d love to see you inspired and tackle any DIY decorating project.”
The roller, tray and paint brush in the kit really were the perfect tools to do this DIY home decor pillow.
After picking out your pillow design then head over and choose your colors like I did with the Turquoise and Grey. You are only limited by your own creativity.
After you get your pillow kit or any other stencil, be sure read their How To Stencil articles and watch their videos.
Here is a great plus! All the stencils are reusable. I found the stencil to be very easy to work with. It is well secured to the thick cardboard frame and ready to go out of the box. Cutting Edge Stencil tips on how to stencil by rolling on the paint lightly from an almost dry roller and then adding a little paint at a time and rolling again until you get the desired effect to worked out perfectly.
Plus the paint brush is handy to fill in little areas of each stencil the roller did not get. I used the paint brush to lightly fill in the edges of the bird’s feathers and feet.
My design is called Bird Cage DIY Accent Pillow Stencil Kit.
Take a look at just some of the beautiful examples of the many “perfectly patterned pillow” designs Cutting Edge has to offer.
There are many designs and colors to choose. If you want to add tassels, rhinestones, flowers or other embellishments they have the supplies. What is also great is having custom pillows to match your home decor.
Check out all their Paint a Pillow designs. I am sure there is one or two or more there you will want to bring home too.
I have to say I really am impressed with the quality of the pillow, paint, stencil and thrilled with how my pillow turned out.
PIN IT For Later!I hope this how to stencil a pillow to match your home decor inspired you to get a stencil for yourself for a pillow, wall, ceiling, furniture or any surface. It was fast, easy and really a lot of fun.
