Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas Pillow
I have to thank my friend Kelly, from the Tattered Pew for inviting me on this DIY Christmas blog hop with a bunch of talented ladies. If you are stopping by from Chelsea’s beautiful blog,welcome! You will most definitely get inspired with all the creative projects shared in the two days of blog hops. See the links below before you head out today. I am sharing another Maker’s Studio project of mine that is with one of my absolute favorite stencils. This stencil I feel can be used almost anytime of the year but most definitely during the Fall and Christmas holidays. I decided to change my “deer” in a festive Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Christmas pillow. Now, I feel my taste has become more simple then ever. It may have to do with living in an RV this five months or maybe just looking back at previous Christmas tours and realizing how much “stuff” I used. Whatever the reason I have leaned towards simple decorating and simple projects. Ones that bring that afternoon hour some creativity while feeling accomplished and impressed with what you’ve created. This one is def one for the books of simple Christmas crafts. See the supplies below and be sure to grab a girlfriend to make together!

Supplies to create Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer pillow
Plain Pillow Cover (I bought mine at IKEA for $6)
Black Chalkart (permanent ink coming out November 20th)-You can use either one ink will last through washes.
.5″ red pom pom
Apply Deer Stencil
Start with a clean pillow cover, you can steam or press before if you desire. Then add cardboard or shopping bag something with a hard surface inside pillow cover to protect from bleeding through. Apply your deer stencil to center of pillow. I used chalkart for my print, but a Maker’s Studio is coming out as of November 20th with a permanent ink so you can always try that as well. These mesh stencil are incredibly easy to use, but be sure when peeling from back that you peel back slowly not to rip stencil. Once you have peeled back your stencil apply to your cover. Then from there start to apply a small amount of chalk paste onto your spreader and begin at top working your down and being sure to cover enire stencil. You don’t need a very heavy coat of the paste so don’t be too generous. Once in covered peel back your stencil and be sure to wash right away with soap and water. These stencils are reusable so you can wash them place them back onto backing and save them for another project or make more then one pillow.
Once you have your deer dried (you can also use blow dryer to dry it completely) then apply a red pom for it’s nose using hot glue or glue of choice and create a ribbon by tying two ribbons together and apply to collar of deer.
Then you have this cute Rudolph Christmas Pillow
