Tutorial to make a stenciled outdoor pillow. I am so excited to share my latest addition in my front porch mini-makeover with you. A fun stenciled outdoor pillow can be super easy to make and save you a bundle as you fix up your porch and patio for summer.
You Will Need...
- Canvas fabric from JoAnn's (about 1/2 yard depending on pillow form)
- Alphabet stencil
- Plaid acrylic craft paint
- Sponge pouncer
- Pillow form
- Sewing machine if available
- Steam iron
Step by Step Instructions
I measured the pillow form and stayed well within those measurements
while I traced my wording out before I began to stencil.
Next I used my sponge paint pouncer to apply black acrylic paint to stencil
on the letters. As I moved from letter to letter, I placed a few sheets of blank
copy paper over each area I had just stenciled to protect it from smearing.
Once I was done I let the paint dry and stitched together the front and back
of my pillow with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Turning the cover right side out
and putting the pillow form in was next. The last step was to simply whip stitch
the last seam across the bottom shut and my y’all pillow was complete!
