Halloween Burlap Pillows

With Halloween right around the corner I think it's time for us to start decorating our home! I am madly in love with burlap so when I love to Create came out with these burlap pillows my heart dropped to the bottom of the earth. Literally. OK, fine not literally but you get it right! There is something about a prickly pillow that makes me feel all warm and cozy. Maybe it's the fact that burlap kinda smells like a barn or feed store. I may be crazy but what can I say burlap is the bomb. Today we are making some fun and quick Halloween pillows so let's get started. 

You will need:
*Burlap Pillows from Michael's Craft Stores
*Tulip Black Fabric Paint 
*Brush (anyone you can get your hands on)
* Reusable Fabric Stencils from Michaels (Number 2)

Step 1: Lay out your burlap pillow on a flat surface. This will help get the creases out.  If you want NO creases then iron it. 
Step 2: Get out your stencil. I am using a Halloween stencil. I love that they look like bloody letters!
Step 3: Spray the backside of your stencil with Tacky Spray. This will keep it secure to your surface you are working with. Make sure you press down the stencil well before you paint. 
Step 4: Start painting the inside of your stencil. Take your time!
Step 5: Once you are done filling in your stencil it's time to let them dry! 
I love burlap. Did I mention that already? 
Step 6: When your letters are dry grab your white spray paint and squirt it on top of your pillow. This is so much fun! Let it dry good before you put a pillow in it. 
I am very pleased with the way they turned out. They add just a little bit of Halloween in your space. What word would you write out on the pillow? 
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I can't wait to see what you create for Halloween! Don't forget to tag us with #ilovetocreate on any social media site!
