I am super excited to share my latest project with you. Since we moved I have had throw pillows that don’t match the vibe of the new house. I’ve seen many awesome script pillows with inspirational phrases on them, and I knew I just had to have one. So I bought these plain linen pillow cases that you can find on Etsy and began to dabble in a little pillow decor.
I started out by picking one of my favorite poems, Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken. NOTE: This poem doesn’t look that long but this did take me some time to stencil onto the pillows. If you have a short attention span like I do I suggest picking a shorter poem, or phrase.
Fabric paint, pillow cases, small paint brush, and letter stencils! The stencils I used are actually sticky so you press right on the fabric and then you don’t have to worry about the paint running outside the boundary of the letter’s. You can find theses at A.C Moore.
Step One: Start writing out the poem. Make positively sure you spell the words correctly because there’s no eraser available! Then paint away. The paint dries quite fast so you can paint a few words and then spell a few more words.
Step Two: I decided to add a little flare and stenciled a bird onto the pillow to break up some of the words.
