Mr. Biddlebits and I were married on June 4, 2011 - we had lovely homemade burlap table runners for our indoor/outdoor reception, so after our Wedding,we had
The pillow looked awesome...from a distance...until you picked it up and turned it over. However, I kept it tucked carefully on our rarely-used living room couch until this last weekend.
...when I decided it was TIME to do right by this poor DIY project!
Step #1: I created a new burlap pillow cover (leave me a comment if you'd like instructions on how to do that)
Step #2: ...stuffed the (de-burlaped/hot glued) pillow inside
Step #3: ...and created a new stencil using our Silhouette cutter and vinyl-sticker. For those of you with a silhouette, or similar cutter, I set my font size to 600, and I believe I used the Times New Roman font. If you don't have a silhouette, you can use the Microsoft word version I mentioned above. It works JUST as well!
Step #4: I centered, then stuck the vinyl stencil to the burlap, grabbed my sharpie pen, and colored in the numbers.
The final project is something I'm proud of! It's a simple pillow, but personalized for the Hubs and me - reminding us of one of the best days of our lives...6.4.2011!
