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!

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!
