Turn a plain pillowcase into a special custom stencil pillowcase for your child's room. Design and paint your own floral border!
What You'll Need:
- Plastic coffee can lids
- Plain pillowcase
- Plastic garbage bag
- Binder clips
- Acrylic paints
- Paper plates
- Stencil brush
How to Make a Custom Stencil Pillowcase:
Step 1: Draw a flower shape on one plastic coffee can lid. Draw leaf shapes on another coffee can lid. Help kids cut the shapes out to create a flower stencil and a leaf stencil.
Step 2: Put the plain pillowcase flat on your work surface, and place a plastic garbage bag inside the pillowcase. Place the flower stencil on the edge of the pillowcase, and secure it with a binder clip.
Step 3: Pour some acrylic paint on a paper plate. Dip a stencil brush in the paint, and dab off the excess paint on a piece of paper. Dab the brush inside the stencil shape until it is filled in.
Step 4: Continue stenciling the flower design along the edge of the pillowcase to make a border.
Step 5: Once the paint has dried, repeat the stenciling process using the leaf stencil and a different color paint. Let the paint dry.
If you want, stencil the same border on the bed's dust ruffle or curtains to match your child's bedroom.
