Okay, calming down now, so that I can actually type this post. ;0)

It was so much fun receiving this HUGE box and unpacking all of its contents!

I love how everything is so organized!

After reading through the directions, I jumped right into stenciling my pillow. One of my favorite things about the Paint-A-Pillow kit is that the pillow case and stencil are attached to the frame, ready to go the minute you open the kit!

I also love the essential details included, too, like the paint tray and paint stirrer {I can never find a paint tray or stirrer when I need one!}.

Originally, my plan was to stencil only the eyes and the mouth in green.

But then I decided I wanted two contrasting colors. I removed the inner pieces of the stencil and painted the entire skull a bright green {Apple Green}.

I then replaced the inner pieces of the stencils and rolled on a black fabric paint.

Make sure you don’t get too much paint on your roller or it can seep under the stencil. I got a little overzealous when I was adding my last coat of green on the teeth.

What to do next? I tried a couple of different embellishments, but nothing was really adding that extra special touch. I think my creativity decided to take the day off.

Thank goodness for my youngest daughter, The Bean. She jumped in, made a couple of suggestions, and even laid out the ribbon pattern we used in the end. Who says blogging isn’t a family affair?! ;0)

I trimmed out the ribbon that was crossing over the skull.

Because I’m not the most accomplished seamstress around, we decided to hot glue the ribbon in place. Plus, we were able to match the lines up more easily using the hot glue rather than having the pillow cover bunched up in a sewing machine.

We added the final details: the purple ribbon which coordinates with my Halloween decor, the rhinestone irises….

…And the tassels. Oh, how I love the tassels! They were so easy to attach to the pillow and were the perfect finishing touch!

That last thing to do was put the cover on the pillow and find a special place for it!

  3. Oh my gosh what a fun little pillow! I love that spooky green and black skull is made not so scary with the purple bow and ribbon. It is the perfect pillow for any girl (or boy) who loves Halloween. It made me think of a joke my boys’ friend told me the other day….Who did Frankenstein take to prom? His Ghoul-Friend. This looks like one cute ghoul-friend 🙂
