Owl Stencil Painting Design for Pillow Cover



Before you start, please read: The stencil I am using is a large size, it is made for repeated use on a large wall or area, for a wallpaper-type look.

This is why I cut my stencil into sections using a rotary cutter and mat. Please skip this step if you are going to use the stencil to paint an entire wall. You could paint and/or stencil the wall first, then cut the stencil for use on smaller decor items.

Cut large stencil for small crafts

Iron your pillow cover and smooth out any creases from the packaging. Insert a piece of cardboard inside the pillow to make a flat smooth surface to work on.

You also need the cardboard or plastic so the markers {or paint} do not bleed through the fabric onto the other side of the pillow cover.

DIY Hand Drawn Pillow Cover using stencils and fabric pens

Lightly spray your stencil with Elmer’s adhesive and place it in the center of the pillow cover.

Tape the edges down with masking tape so they are secure.

Hand Draw on fabric with a stencil

With a black fabric pen hand draw lines at angles in the center of the cutout shapes of the stencil.

Remove the stencil, touch up any areas, add your insert, and enjoy!

How easy was that? Super cute and looks hand-drawn and store-bought!
