Being cosy has got to be one of the homiest touches in my book. Having things you love around you are what makes your house a home. I find that one thing that makes our home nice and cosy is lots of pillows. Trust me. They don’t always stay in the same position or spot looking all pretty and fluffed up!  They end up where ever they end up and will be sure to make your stay at our house a welcoming one. Sharing how to make a cosy Farmhouse Stenciled Pillow and add to your pillow stash!

Supplies needed:

Step 1 – Cut out your pillow template. Mix together your black paint and fabric medium ratio 2:1 on old plate or tile. You don’t need a lot of paint. It goes a long way.
Center your stencil on the large square piece of drop cloth and secure. If you’re not using a vinyl stencil, tape the stencil in place to prevent it from moving while you’re painting.

Step 2 – Load up your spouncer with paint. Then dab a few times away from your puddle of paint on your tile and get rid of most of the paint. You don’t want to much paint otherwise this tends to bleed under the stencil. It’s almost like dry brushing. Let the paint completely dry.

Step 3 – Remove your stencil and then sew the remaining 2 backing pieces following these instructions.

Once you have sewed your pillow together, turn in the right way and pop in your pillow insert.

  1. Sam,

    Your pillow is so adorable! You are a master with type written on material and other things! Love your post and I’m so happy you joined this month, I’m always amazed at all your projects!

  2. That is such a lovely pillow Sam. I need to get a hold of some stencils and start doing my own they look so great. And that brush you are using seems to be perfect for stenciling since it will stop the bleed through. The whole space looks so cozy!

    1. Thank you so much, Mary! The trick I think is to have minimal paint on your spouncer to stop the bleed through. You can always go over it a second time if you think the paint is too light rather than starting off with too much paint 🙂

  3. Sam! You have done it again! This is so awesome!! I want one of those machines, that would be so much fun and addicting! I have a pillow addiction and I’m sure my husband would appreciate if I would learn to make my own!!

    1. Thank you so much, Michelle! The trick I think is to keep your paint to a minimum to stop the bleeding under the stencil. And definitely using the vinyl stencil helps too! 🙂
