Looking to spruce up your pillows a little? As winter begins to settle in, the warmth of a bed and duvet is a welcome treat. Why not add some simple details to make your bedroom a space that you want to spend time in, curled up with a good cup of coffee and your favourite book. Here’s a simple technique to make your own reusable stencils for a linen or pillowcase DIY. The exact same technique could be used for all sorts of DIYs around the house, tote bags and gifts. So get creative with it!
What you need:
Overhead transparencies / Acetate sheet (2xA4, 2xA3)
Print out the free template download and cut out your stencil using a craft knife. There is also a Silhouette Cut File included, if you have a Silhouette machine.
The template include 2 hand-drawn open eyes and 2 closed eyes. Cut the closed eyes from A4 and the open eyes from A3.
Lightly coat the back of the stencil with spray adhesive and place it on your ironed pillowcase. Gently sponge your paint where needed and leave to dry.
Remove the stencil and iron on the reverse of the design to fix the paint. Repeat this process with the open eye on the other side of the pillowcase.
Happy sleeping, reading and cuddling!
