How to Make your own Christmas Pillow

I used the Mittens Craft Stencil for my pillow.

You can easily paint the entire stencil one colour and it will look amazing. I opted to use two different fabric-friendly colours on my stencil. Since I didn’t have a second roller, I used a foam brush to dab on the gray layer first. It worked perfectly!

Once the gray was dry, I added the red paint using the roller for some parts, and a thinner foam brush for the more intricate parts of the design.

When I pulled the stencil off, it looked amazing! I was honestly a little bit shocked that none of the paint bled through the stencil. All of the edges were very crisp!

Add Embellishment to your Pillow

Cutting Edge Stencils also has a few great decorative items that you can add to your stenciled Christmas pillows to embellish them, such as rhinestones, studs, and tassels. I chose to use the large crystal rhinestones and add a little bit of glam to my warm, winter mittens.

When you are all done, you simply pull the cardboard out from inside the cover, and stick the pillow that came with the kit inside. Voilà! Your stenciled Christmas pillow is complete!

Now throw it on the couch with those other throw pillows, and enjoy! My daughter loves the rhinestones, and I love having a beautiful new seasonal piece.
