Measure the back of your chair to determine the length required for the pillow case.
Add an inch for hemming and then cut off all excess.
Using iron-on hemming tape, fold a 1” bottom hem of the pillow case over the hemming tape and iron on high heat.
Iron on a row of trim pom-poms using the same hemming tape to the bottom edge.
Next, select a silhouette clip art image from online, print, and then trace it onto the clear mylar paper.
Cut the image out and apply a light spray of low tack adhesive to the stencil template.
Affix the stencil onto the center of the pillow case back.
Insert a piece of cardboard or a plastic place mat inside the pillow case before painting so the paint won’t seep through.
Apply a coat of paint to the stencil pattern using a dabbing motion with a foam brush.
Carefully remove the mylar stencil and allow the paint to dry thoroughly.
