Make and Stencil a Pillow Using Freezer Paper


After flipping through my latest Crate & Barrel catalog, I decided to try and knock-off one of their gorgeous throw pillows. Their ampersand pillow was my favorite, so I thought I would give it a try. I found a few different tutorials here and there, and decided to try it for myself. I have a Cricut cutting machine, so it was a bit easier, but not necessary. Basically, you cut a design into your freezer paper, then iron it on your fabric. Then you use a stenciling brush to dab on your paint. The freezer paper adheres to the fabric when you iron it on, but pulls off without leaving any residue...very easy to do!

    Do you have to put the freezer paper on a specific side, when ironing?
