My Old Kentucky Home Stenciled Burlap Pillow

Stenciled Burlap Pillow

I love, love, love the way a few pillows can totally change the look of a room.  The only problem?  Pillows can be pretty pricey!  That’s why I love to make my own and change them out often.  I recently saw a pillow like this one at one of my favorite shops, and decided to make my own with a Kentucky twist…so was born My Old Kentucky Home Stenciled Burlap Pillow!

How To Stencil BurlapI used my Silhouette and made a stencil.  I simply typed out My Old Kentucky Home, added a silhouette of my favorite state, and let the machine cut it out on some vinyl.  I then stuck it on a piece of burlap banding that I cut to fit around the chevron pillows I just made.

Stencil On Burlap

I used one of my stencil brushes and some black acrylic paint to stencil my design on.  As soon as I was finished stenciling, I immediately pulled up the vinyl so my design could dry.

Next, I hot glued the two ends of my band together and slipped it onto one of my pillows…

 Now I have my very own Kentucky pillow…these would look so cute in just about any state, but KY is definitely my fave!

 I made another cute stenciled pillow using a different kind of stencil to balance the other side of my now super happy couch!
