How To: Make a Typographic DIY Stencil Pillow!

created at: 01/25/2012

Stencils, linen, and a good quote might be the ultimate throw pillow trifecta!   

Amanda Wright, the lovely blogger and designer behind Wit & Whistle, created this typographic stencil pillow after spotting a similar (and expensive) design on Vivaterra.  Not thrilled with the price or the quote, she decided to make her own version–and share the process and materials with fellow DIY-minded decor lovers.  Thanks, Amanda!

To make your own, here’s what you’ll need:

  • a blank pillow cover (buy or make your own!)
  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • letter stencil
  • fabric marker
  • your favorite quote*
