Stenciling a Winter Pillow Cover

The more I learn about my vinyl cutter the more fun I have.

As an alternative to a red and green holiday season, I turned my mantel into a winter wonderland using my favorite decorations and my Mason Jar Collection.

Stenciling a Winter Pillow Cover for the Living room

The next step was to decorate the room with that pretty Mason Jar blue color by adding teal blue pillows and throws.

I used my Silhouette machine to cut winter themed vinyl stencils to add decorative pillow covers. 

The winter themed cut files can be found at the online Silhouette store.

I used a black and a teal blue chalky paint to stencil the design onto a blank pillow cover

Before I started painting I put a piece of parchment paper between the pillow layers so it wouldn't leak through.

I used a stencil brush and off-loaded the paint onto a scrap piece of wood so the brush wouldn't hold too much paint and leak under the vinyl.

I gently pounced the color inside the stencil. I created a lighter blue snowflake by using less paint.

When the paint was dry I peeled off the stencils and removed the parchment paper.
