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!
I 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.
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!
I’m sharing this stenciling method and pillow over at one of my favorite blogs, Chase The Star! Be sure to drop by and tell Barbara I sent you!!
