Remember those super easy pillow covers I showed you how to make last month?
Take that how to, replace the shower curtain with canvas painters tarp and grab some stencils and chalk paint. I recommend Annie Sloan’s chalk paint. It has the best consistency out of the few different brands that I’ve tried.
Step 1 – Follow steps 1 thru 9 the last how to.
Step 2 – You’ll want to water down your chalk paint when you use it on fabrics. You can use any disposable container to make your paint mixture. If you use 2 tablespoons of paint, you’ll need about 1 tablespoon of water. This should help keep your fabric from becoming stiff and cracking. After you’re down it will feel kind of like a suede.
Step 3 – Layout your stencil template and brush on your paint mixture in short quick strokes. It’s ok if the paint bleeds a little.
Step 4 – Once you’re paint has dried (you can add another coat if you need to) take a fine sand paper and lightly brush over the painted area.
Step 5 – Lay out your stencils for the next layer. I used non-eraseable chalk marker for the lettering.
Step 6 – Stuff you’re pillows and let the haunting begin.
