Easy Fall Decor with Decoart Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints!
Happy Labor Day! Even though we are experiencing a HEAT wave down here in southern California, I’m still dreaming of (and decorating for) FALL. I’m in love with fall. The cooler weather, boots, pumpkin anything… I love it all!
For my first project of fall I made this burlap houndstooth stenciled outdoor pillow!
Want to see how I did it? Well you’re in luck! I’ve got all the details for ya, right here!
I love burlap for fall decor! It’s just so cozy! Love it. And seriously, I am LOVING this houndstooth stencil!
Burlap (I used about a quarter of a yard)
Americana Mixed Media Stencil
Americana Paint (Birch White)
Canvas or another material for the backing
The first step is to cut your burlap piece to size. I used a 20×20 pillow form, so I used a 20×20 piece of burlap.
Stenciling the burlap was really simple! Using a form brush or a stencil brush dab brush into the paint, then dab brush onto a paper towel or some other dry surface to dab off a little excess paint. You don’t want a lot of paint on your brush. The start tapping your brush around to cover the stenciled area.
Once you’ve covered the stenciled area. Pick up the stencil (admire your beautiful work) and allow it to dry for several minutes before lining up and painting the next section.
Continue to stencil in sections until the whole piece is painted.
Once your stenciled piece of burlap is dry, you are ready to sew!
I used this awesome simple envelope pillow cover tutorial to complete my pillow! It’s definitely the easiest tutorial I’ve used, by far!
After stenciling, this pillow sewed right up in about 10 minutes!
My first fall decor project is complete! It’s happy on my front porch welcoming fall to our visitors.
