DIY Stamped pillow

As some of you may know, this last Sunday my husband and I had our birthday… Yes, you heard right, our birthday is the same day. It’s a bit weird, but at the same time it feels a bit like Christmas, it’s a gift exchange tradition.

I was able to buy this old leather armchair. He has always wanted one, but never has taken the step to buy one. (He is a total vintage -leather -industrial freak) And I could not resist buying this beautiful leather chair I found and sneak it home with a surprise party with all his family. He was so surprised! He loved it! At the same time I wanted to give the gift with a DIY touch, to make it a little more personalized. So I opt for making him a DIY stamped pillow for the chair, that says “El sillón de Jose Luis”  witch in spanish means “Jose Luis’s chair”

Here I will show you step by step how I did it. It’s a very simple tutorial and with this technique you can make very original pillows. Wan’t to try?

Process:

1a. First option: In word, power point, illustrator… write the message you want with the font you like. print it.

1b. Second option: If you don’t have a printer at home (like me) you can stick the sheet on your screen and trace the outline of the letters. As Veva from the blog  My white idea who showed us this idea in her colab with 2nd Funniest thing. Thank you Veva!!!

2. To create the template, cut with cutter and/or scissors the edges of the letters. You don’t have to be perfect. Remember we want a rustic touch.

3. Paste the template with masking tape on cushion cover.

4. With the sponge with some paint (not soaked) tap over the holes on the template. It dosn’t have to be very uniform. We want a rustic and vintage style, just a bit sloppy.

5. Remove the template careful to not stain the rest of the case. Let dry and ironing it to set the color.
