I had to give this a shot. I pretty much have to have dark pillows, because we have a leather couch and most of the time they are on the floor. If they are not on the floor there are dirty little fingers touching them and bottles flown about. I would like to brighten the joint up with lighter color pillows, but darker looks better than dirty. Sooooo anywayyyy I went to Walmart to get some things for the project. I started with a black pillow $6.00.
I then printed out some numbers on card stock (a harder paper), and used an exacto knife to cut out the stencil for my numbers.
I pinned the numbers to the pillow, and painted white. It turned out fabulous, in fact I think I am going to do one more today.
