When I’m changing up the decor of the front porch, I always like it to have a  touch of nature. I decided to try out Paint a Pillow, a DIY pillow stencil company, and I went with the Bermuda breeze design. I loved the big colorful leaf design of the pillow. I added some fuchsia crepe myrtle flowers in a vase to compliment. You can choose any color you want to paint the leaf. The pops of color looked great with an all-white background. This pillow is also displayed here (Curb Appeal). It a great pillow that I can use throughout my home.

  Check out the full tutorial:

  1. 3. For edges that are not covered, use a small paintbrush to fill those parts that are not covered by the paint. Wait until the pillow cover has dried completely before taking the stencil off. You can reuse the stencil kit for other pillow covers.

4. Heat set the pillow cover before putting the pillow form into the cover. I placed cotton fabric over the stencil and ironed over it carefully over the stencil. (directions are in the kit)
