This post and giveaway are sponsored by Paint-A-Pillow who supplied a pillow kit for me to review. As always, all opinions are truthful and my own.
Have you heard of Paint-A-Pillow? Using Paint-A-Pillow’s kit, you can make your own designer pillows. The kit includes a pillow cover and pillow, stencil, stencil brush, roller, tray, and a vial of paint. You can add on to the kit with other paint colors, tassels, studs, faux flowers and more.
It took a lot of deliberation for me to decide upon the stencil design and then the colors that I wanted to use for my pillow. In the end I chose the Tamara Trellis stencil and paints in yellow ochre, maroon, neutral gray, and turquoise.
I completed this project on a snowy February day and am just now sharing it with you. The pillow and the stencil fit into a stenciling frame. Note that clips hold the stencil in place.
I recommend watching Paint-A-Pillow’s how-to video before tackling this project. The kit includes a roller but I opted to only use the stenciling brush for more control over paint placement.
After the gray, turquoise, and maroon paints dried, I flipped the pillow over and stenciled the opposite side using gray, yellow ochre, and turquoise. Now my pillows are reversible, giving me two fun looks!
Tassels are an inexpensive add-on to the kit and I think are a fun addition to the pillows. For $1 you can also order a latch hook tool to help you easily add the tassel to each corner of the pillow. Put the tool inside the pillow, push it through a corner, pull the tassel through using the hook, tie a knot inside the pillow, and the tassel is on. If you get tired of the tassels, they can be easily removed.
These pillows looks great in just about any setting. Here they add a fun pop of color to this neutral sofa.
