I’ve said it before but I absolutely love watching home design shows. One of the tips that I’ve learned from home design shows is that changing out your pillows can be a quick and easy way to spruce up a room. I’ve made a number of pillowcases in the past using different colored fabrics and iron on letters, but this weekend I made my first painted pillowcase using Tulip for Your Home stencils. And I loved it!
Make Your Own Painted Pillow
- Large Tulip background stencil
- Small Tulip motif stencil
- Tulip stencil spray adhesive
- Tulip fabric paints, one color for your background and one for your statement stencil
- Small Tulip paint roller
- Wax paper (not pictured)
- Masking or blue painter’s tape (optional)
Step 3 – Once you’ve sprayed on the adhesive, press the large stencil, sticky side down, onto the pillowcase. Make sure to line it up correctly where you want it on the pillowcase then press down more firmly.
Step 4 – Paint your chosen color on the stencil. If you are nervous about going outside of the stencil, you can add masking tape or blue painter’s tape to the edges of the stencil to protect the edges of the pillowcase. Make sure when you are getting paint on the roller that you just use a little paint at a time so you don’t saturate the roller and get blobs of paint.
Step 5 – Once you’re done painting, let the paint dry for a few minutes then gently peel the stencil back from the pillowcase. Let your background dry completely before moving on to step 6.
Step 6 – Once your background paint has dried completely, spray the smaller statement stencil with adhesive and adhere it to the background, lined up where you want it. Since I knew I was using a crown, which is a horizontal object, I decided to make my stripes go vertical for contrast.
Step 7 – Paint your smaller stencil using the contrasting Tulip fabric paint color. Let it dry for a few minutes then remove the stencil gently and admire your handiwork.
See how easy that was? And with so many different colors and designs available with Tulip’s new At Home collection, the possibilities for painted pillowcases are endless. I’m already coming up with ideas for new pillowcases for our master bedroom.
