Making your Own Mixed Media Décor Pillow

Standard

Mixed Media Decor PillowOur homes require a personal touch when it comes to décor. This is the simple reason that Melanie Statnick smiles back at herself whenever she visits home décor and craft stores on seeing an abundance of decor items. Some of them include Decor boxes, wall art, candle holders, garden and décor pillows.

With all the collections she would find, Melanie attempted to make a Décor pillow using a sewing machine, even though she had undertaken Home Studiesmany moons ago. However, instruction books and DVD’s that come with most machines today would give some relieve to her work.

Depending on the fabric you’ll want to play with, you will require 2 sheets of burlap and canvas squares each. The art will be on the canvas side though.

You can choose to use a stencil which you lay out on the section you want then use ink spray to give it the effect you want.

It is not necessary that you use the fine mist around the design if you don’t like it. It could probably look messy at some point. In this case cover your edges with scrap paper. To fame the design, a boarder of lace ribbon would do using fabric glue in addition to glued buttons on the corners.

To ascertain that your work is ready, allow it to dry for 24 hours before adding the stuffing and if you don’t want it to run off its ink, spray with a fabric sealer.
