I was a little afraid of making the pillows just yet, as I wanted to practice first on something a little simpler.
I had this big spot on the wall in the dining room/school room and had an idea. I took an old bulletin board (handmade by my mom years ago) decided to make a wall hanging with the process I will use on the pillows...check it out...
Finished product....see below for more picture on how I made this.
1st step - printed off the numbers on Microsoft Word, BIG. Then cut them out with my Exacto knife.
This is the old board...the kind with material and batting behind it. It had ribbon on it to hold pictures also. It is very well made (thanks mom).
Got out my drop cloth.
Cut a piece big enough to cover the board and have some room to hot glue. I also ironed all all the creases (as my mother reads this she is smiling, I hate to iron)
Taped down my handmade "stencils" (WHEN I make the pillows, I will use thicker paper so it's card like).
Used acrylic pant and used a small brush. You can see how the flimsy paper did not work the best and the lines were shaky.
Better view of the three not perfect by far.
Finished up the 1 and 2, easier and better.
Cut, hot glued the fabric to the bulletin board. I also went back with a black Sharpie marker and fixed the numbers up a little. Worked great.
The only thing I would change is the paper I printed the numbers on. Using the heavier card stock paper for sure!
