Stenciled Welcome Pillow

Hi there lovelies!

Today let’s make a Stenciled Welcome Throw Pillow!

My living room is decorated in a western theme, mostly browns and tans.
I thought a team roping throw pillow would be fun, and it was, but the space was screaming for some more COLOR! Turquoise in fact. :)
{Remember talking about this here…?}

Materials needed:
Envelope pillow cover – I use this tutorial for all the pillow covers I sew.
Fabric paint or craft paint (the team roper pillow was done with craft paint!)
Stencil – I designed the Welcome and the cowboy boot (purchased through the Silhouette store) on my Silhouette software then cut it out with my Silhouette in vinyl to make my stencil.
Paint Brush

I sew the envelope pillow cover to make the face of the pillow, but stop before sewing up the sides.
This makes it WAY easier to stencil and paint!

Peel and layout your stencil on the face of the pillow.

Then fill the stencil in with the fabric/craft paint, very carefully, with the paint brush!
I leave mine to dry at least overnight before sewing up the sides of the envelope pillow cover.

Viola! Your very own stenciled throw pillow!
I could make these all day! So fun! :)

P.S. Hope you enjoyed this post! If so, we’d love if !


  1. These are cute!! And they look easy to make! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I do really love these pillows. I should probably just make one already.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Yep, you probably should! Especially since you just whipped out a skirt!! A pillow cover would be nothing! 😉

  3. Love it! I have a lot of browns and tan in our living room too, maybe I should give that a try!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Little pops of color in a neutral room are so fun! :) You should try it!

  4. I am totatly doing this!!!

  5. I love how a little bit of color can perk any room right up. I found that out in my living room :)
    Your pillows turned out really cute.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Agreed! Just a few pops here and there make everything so much brighter! :) Thanks girl! They were really fun to make!

  6. I’d really love to try this out! Yours looks so cute! But somehow I think I’d find a way to mess this up. lol.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      As long as you have a good stencil and stay in the lines, it’s fool proof! haha! Thanks girl!

  7. @kassy, your like a magician with that brush 😛 Great job with that trick and many thanks for sharing it with us :) I am off to put that to test right now… Wish me luck!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Why THANK YOU Ruth! 😉 Hope it works out for you!!! If you do try it, I’d love to see if you’d like to come back and share a photo or link! :)

  8. Super cute! I don’t have a silhouette, so I’d have to improvise on the stencil, but I love the way this turned out. Great color choice!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      You could definitely free hand a simpler one, or purchase a stencil from a craft store! Completely doable! And thank you! I love it!!

  9. I love the pillows, especially the colors. I’ve only made one stenciled pillow, but plan on making more. I don’t have a Silhouette, but my Cricut seems to do the job. Thanks for sharing.

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thanks Laurie!! :) I’ve heard the Cricut works like a charm! Would love to see the ones you make sometime!

  10. Those turned out great! Wonderful idea! P.S. I think I have the exact same furniture! :)

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thank you Michelle! :) I love those couches, don’t you!?! Just wipe them off if they get dirty!!!

  11. Amanda @ The Little Giggler says:

    Those are so cute! I love the boot!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Thanks Amanda! :) I created it from a shape I bought through the Silhouette store! So fun right?!

  12. That pillow is so darn cute!
    I found you over at MMB! I’ll def. be back!!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Why thank you miss Kristy!!! :) Thanks for stopping by today! Don’t you just love Jenny!

  13. What a fun project. Seriously, one can never have too many fun throw pillows :) Thanks so much for sharing this project over on Show and Tell Wednesday at SNAP! It’s so fun to see all of the great projects!
