A stenciled design takes this plain accent pillow to a new, nautical level.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • wax paper or freezer paper
    • 1" painter's tape
    • cosmetic sponge
    • fabric pillow



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Remove from the pillow from its pillowcase, if applicable. (If you are using a pillowcase, be sure to put wax or freezer paper in between the layers so paint does seep through to the back.)
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Place the Americana Decor Nautical Knot Stencil over the pillow or pillowcase where you want it and use painter's tape to hold it in place.
    4. Load a cosmetic sponge with Steel Grey. Lightly pounce the entire stencil angled on one side; then turn to the other side and repeat the rope for borders.
