Do you remember when I made Sharpie stenciled wall art with painters drop cloth? Well I finally got around to making Sharpie Marker Stenciled Pillows too!
Stenciling with Sharpie markers is quick and super easy. I made “covers” out of the painter’s drop cloth left over from my valances. Find a stencil you like that fits your pillow cover.
1. Take your pillow cover and put something inside so the marker doesn’t bleed through to the back. Something at least the same size as the stencil you are going to use–I used a large book, but a piece of cardboard will work well too.
2. Tape your stencil in place on your fabric.
3. Uncap your Sharpie marker of choice (I used black) and fill in the stencil. I like to use a wide tip marker and a light touch, being careful to press around the area you are filling in so it doesn’t bleed under the edges of the stencil. If you want it darker just go over it again.
4. Remove you stencil slowly to make sure you didn’t miss any areas.

5. Heat set with a dry iron and you are ready to insert the pillow form or an old pillow!
How’s that for a quick and easy project? You can use this stencil method on so many things. Stencil on paper, cardboard storage boxes, create your own art on canvas, towels, nearly any cotton fabric will work. If it can be stenciled on, you can probably use a marker.
Give it a try!
