Painted Snowman Pillow
Vanessa @ DIY 180 gave me inspiration to get out my paints
when I dropped by and had seen her painted pillow knock off....
I fell in love with it!!
For the past three years I have made
Pottery Barn (copy cat) pillows....
So why not give it a try......
White Weathered Hutch
I gathered my $ store paints..and washed burlap
and a piece of cardboard ....
I wrapped the burlap around the cardboard
and started painting....
I'm one of those people who fly
by the seat of their pants...
(if you know that expression)
At this point I just wanted to start painting not
knowing what size of pillow form I had or
how large this snowman would turn out...
here it is all painted and hanging to dry..
The only pillow insert I had was a 24 x 24
that's too large so I
did the next best ....and covered a summer
pillow that was 15 1/2 x 15 1/2.
I cut my burlap at 16 x16 and used
painters drop cloth as my backing.
I made a envelope style for easy
removal , so come next summer
I'll use this again.
I cut my drop cloth 16 x 22 and cut it right down the
middle then sewed a 1/2 seam on both sides.
then right sides facing sew all around the edge
1/2 inch seam and then turn it inside out..
Last year was the Jingle Pillow
Pottery Barn Inspiration
Until next time!
