instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Place the stencil in the center of the pillow cover and secure to the pillow underneath with tape.  The stencil is going to serve as a mask.
  2. To make thinner lines in the plaid, cut down the tape width to 1/2" with craft knife and ruler.  Or just use the tape as is and have a larger plaid.
  3. If you leave the tape as is, space the horizonal tape 3/4" apart and paint Engine Red stripes.  Remove the tape.
  4. Repeat step 3 but going vertical.
  5. Stencil HAPPY HOLIDAYS in Licorice, the trees in Bright Green and the stars in Engine Red.
