This retro Santa Claus pillow DIY is a quick project. Use curtain panels from Goodwill San Antonio with stencils and paint to whip up this home decor! This is a sponsored post.
Here’s a quick project you can make to spruce up your living room or your guest room before visitors arrive for the holidays. My secret for finding bargain fabric is to shop at Goodwill San Antonio. Curtain panels make great upholstery project fabric, and they are a lot less expensive than buying fabric by the yard. I used a fun retro Santa stencil with some new textured fabric paints to make this quick project.
Supplies Used for the Santa Claus Pillow DIY:
- Curtain Panel from Goodwill
- Santa Claus Stencil by Stencil Revolution
- LaurDIY Fabric Paint in White, Red, Black
- Fabric Paint Sponge
- Sewing Machine
- Large Pillow Insert from Fairfield World
My pillow is going to be BIG so I am using a large stencil and a large pillow insert. Trim the fabric piece to fit the pillow. Place the Santa Stencil on the fabric and tape it in place if needed.
Use the various paints to fill in the image. I used the Texturrific paint which has a slightly raised texture when you iron it. I was “patchy” with the paint application because I want the image to look worn and vintage. I used red on the hat, white on the beard and hair, and black paint on the other features. Let the paint dry completely.
I ironed the dried paint on the back of the fabric to make the texture appear.
Pin two of the edges together and sew them closed. I am leaving one end longer and open so I can use the pillow cover like a pillowcase. This way I can slide it off and store it after the holidays.
Slide the massive and comfy pillow insert into the pillowcase and enjoy!
