Deer Family Pillow by Infarrantly Creative!

Sharing is caring!

Hello Honeybear Lane fans. I am Beckie author of Infarrantly Creative, Roadkill Rescue and Knock Off Décor. Yes, I am busy. I have been obsessed with two things lately: making pillows and the Simply Screen Kit from Plaid. I saw this Holiday Deer Throw Family Pillow cover from Red Envelope that is not only $50 but is also sold out! Not that I would purchase it anyway but I sure would recreate it myself.red envelope pillow

Supplies:

Pillow cover (I got mine from Ikea: Aina Pillow Cover $6)

Simply Screen Kit

White Simply Screen paint

Design program

White printer paper

Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape

1. I designed a replica of the pillow I saw on Red Envelope making sure the images I wanted white were actually black in the design.holiday deer throw pillow

2. I printed out my design and then cut it down to fit the largest screen in the kit.

3. Then I peeled the backing from the screen and burnished my print out onto the sticky side of the screen.

4. Then I put a piece of glass over my image (image and screen side down) to really hold it down so the image would stay in tact when I exposed it.

5. Then I put it under the light box for exactly 25 minutes (SET A TIMER!).

6. I peeled back the paper and soaked my screen for 30 seconds. With my kitchen sprayer and a sponge I wiped away the emulsion until all of my image was a clear screen. Then I let my screen dry.

7. Next I marked the center of my pillow cover and then got my screen and taped it down with Scotch Blue painters tape.

8. I squirted two lines of Simply Screen paint and then drug it over my image pulling the paint into the screen. I used a thick coat and covered the entire image. I let it sit for two minutes and then I added another coat (since it was a lighter colored paint on a dark fabric).

9. Then I peeled off the tape. I pulled back the screen to reveal my print.

Woo-hoo! It is beautiful! Then I let it dry. Using a press cloth I ironed it to set the print. Then I popped a pillow in it and admired it on couch.
