Pumpkins, potions and pillows, oh my! To get your couch and chairs wickedly festive for Halloween, here's an easy way to create pillows using paint and printable stencils. Spook up your décor and invite over the costumed gang before a ghoulish night of trick-or-treating.
In order to create painted pillows, you'll need: a pillow or pillowcase, a marking utensil, scissors, freezer paper, fabric paint, paint brushes or sponge pouncers, an iron and Halloween stencils printed out from eHow's site.
Choose Stencil Location
When your stencil is completely cut out, place it onto your pillow or pillowcase and test out the location where you want it to sit, be it right in the center, at the top corner, etc.
Iron down your stencil to the pillow or pillowcase. Press it for a few seconds in each section until the stencil sticks. Freezer paper is waxy on its shiny side so when you iron, it will adhere to the material because of the heat.
