Quick & Easy Stenciled Holiday Pillows

Add a little warmth and coziness to your home with Quick and Easy DIY Holiday pillows with a twist.
These pillow projects have a couple of unique twists to make these projects super easy.
For the “Believe” pillow I started with a .79 dish towel that I picked up at IKEA.
To give my towel a creamy vintage color… I soaked my towel in a tub of hot tea.

I wanted my towel to stay light so I only left it in a minute or two.

Leave towel in longer for a darker brown color.

Rinse the towel in hot water and then throw in the dryer to set.
•Iron the towel to make crisp and stencil the towel using the 12″ Word Xmas Tree stencil from Clear Scraps and dark red acrylic paint.

•Fold the towel in half, stenciled side in, stitched the towel together and fill with a soft stuffing.
The Snowflake pillow is a No Sew Pillow. (I really cheated with this pillow.)
•I used a plain 14″ x 20″ canvas placemat from Canvas Corp Brands which I stenciled with the Snowflake stencil from Stencil 1 using Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists. Make sure to cover and mask any areas that you wouldn’t want sprayed.

•Glue the ribbon, lace and buttons onto the placemat using Beacon Fabri-Tac Permanent Adhesive, 4-Ounce, tucking ends to backside of the placemat.

•Glue place mat together and fill with a soft stuffing.
•New Sewing Required. (for decorative use only)
