Bunny Silhouette Pillow for Easter
Welcome to this fun Spring blog hop, hosted by my friend Jen from Noting Grace! If you are joining me from my lovely friend Sarah’s home at She Hold’s Dearly, I’m so glad you stopped by. Sarah always has the best tips and DIY’s. Today I’m sharing a simple Easter/Spring craft that anyone can make! The best part you can make these over and over again as gifts or be inspired by this idea and create the same look to a napkin, tea towel, or Tshirt. With Easter being a bit later this year I’m holding off on Easter decor until April. I’m probably doing simple as simple seems to be what I’ve been going for a lot lately. I don’t want to over crowd the house with “stuff” yet be intentional with my decorating and have hints of Spring and hints of Easter. I wanted to create a simple bunny pillow silhouette to add to the house since I have a thing for silhouette style art work and my husband has a thing for bunnies lol. He’s too funny some how he always likes when I put bunny themed items out every Easter so this was another one of the little touches that he actually liked. I ordered this mesh stencil from my shop at A Maker’s Studio to create a few new things for Spring. I knew the large bunny would be perfect for a silhouette look to a pillow or dish or napkin and so I decided to test it out the other night.
If you remember back at Christmas I created this cute “Deer/Rudolph” pillow so I did a similar method with this one for Easter. Instead of using the IKEA pillow covers I picked up a few from Hobby Lobby the other day that were half off! Such a steal! This time around I used the ink for fabric so that it as more permanent to the fabric. The ink allows you to wash the item if you want rather then the chalk paste, but if you have chalk paste on hand that will still do the trick!
Hobby Lobby Pillow Cover
Apply mesh stencil to fabric and use a small amount of ink to a card or applicator. spread a thin and even layer to stencil avoiding going over the edge.
Remove stencil and wash immediately so you can use again.
Let dry and cut and hot glue bow to bunny, you could even apply a cotton ball tail or a colored/patterned bow.
Remember what I said about simple…this certainly turned out simple. Which I really like! it has that french simplistic touch to the pillow without feeling over-whelming. It’s a great way to pair with a few other neutral pillows and cute be really cute on a kid’s bed or outside on the porch too. You could even do this over maybe a ticking stripe fabric or combine it with the script stencil for more of a French feel. Be sure to check out all the other hops listed below this week. Next up on today’s tour is my friend Leslie who’s sharing some pretty placemats!
I styled it in a few places in the house like our hallways bench and in the mudroom room area.
