Create drama on a simple accent pillow with Americana® Mixed Media Stencils and SoSoft Fabric Paint..


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • plain white text paper
    • travel pillowcase
    • small and large brushes
    • tape or spray adhesive
    • buttons or adornments (optional)
    • cosmetic sponge


    1. Iron the pillowcase and lay it out on a flat surface, with plain paper or plastic inside to prevent paint from seeping through.
    2. Affix the tree stencil in place with tape or spray adhesive.
    3. Gently blot White on each stencil section using a cosmetic sponge until first coat is on fully. Set aside to dry overnight.
    4. Apply a second coat of White with a cosmetic sponge and allow to dry overnight again.
    5. Remove the stencil, touch up any spots, and apply decorations, if desired. (I used three buttons down the side.)
