(Disclosure: Paint-A-Pillow gave me a free pillow kit in exchange for this review. However, all opinions are my own.)
You guys know I'm all about an awesome stencil, right? I've created a paisley drum table, paisley cedar chest, stenciled bookshelf and more with the help of Cutting Edge Stencils. Now, they've created a sister company called Paint-A-Pillow, which combines their awesome reusable stencils with pillows! I've been looking for pillows for my living room for a long time, but couldn't find anything that I loved and went with the color theme. The concept of receiving a fluffy pillow insert, a lovely linen cover, choosing an incredible design, and choosing beautiful colors that match my decor perfectly -- um... am I in heaven? You can add more than one color at checkout and you can add embellishments like tassels, rhinestones, flowers, and studs, too!
I chose the Indian Arrows stencil with Ruby Red, Turquoise, and Black fabric paint. This isn't just any paint -- it dries soft and it's washable once you heat-set the paint, which is totally awesome if you have a crazy pup (like me) or kiddos.
Once I ordered my pillow, I received the cutest stencil kit! Even the packaging was impressive! I love it when companies care about the "little" details.
The cardboard frame around the pillow cover holds the stencil in place while you're painting away!
Follow the simple directions included in the kit and you'll have a custom pillow in no time. I did one red/black:
And the other one turquoise/black:
(Side note: a typical kit comes with one pillow cover, but you can order additional blank ones like I did to create multiple pillows.)
Don't they go beautifully with my embroidery hoop collage?
From start to finish (including the time it took for them to dry), I had new pillows in less than 2 hours! Yippee!
