Freezer Paper Stencil Tutorial
Using freezer paper as a stencil is easy as can be.
Use a freezer paper stencil on fabric to make your own customized pillows! Making these freezer stencils is super addictive. Make T-shirts, decor, and more once you get the hang of it! If you see a cute pillow at the store with a darling phrase on it, you can probably make it yourself for a fraction of the price. Same goes for T-shirts and other fabric crafts. These projects also make great gifts because they'll truly be one of a kind. Learn how to do this craft hack today.

- A canvas pillow cover
- Pillow form
- Fabric paint
- Kitchen sponges
- Freezer paper
- Scissors or a craft knife
Find a design or image and print it on a large sheet of paper, the size you want it on the pillow.
Lay the freezer paper shiny side down on the print and trace around the image.
Cut out the design, but don't forget about the pieces that comprise the insides of letters! Save those for later.
Lay the shiny side of the freezer paper on the pillow cover, along with the little pieces inside the letters, and lay the cotton cloth over the top. Iron it on. The shiny side becomes adhesive and sticks to your pillow cover.
Insert a magazine or something similar inside the pillowcase to prevent the paint from bleeding through.
Using a kitchen sponge, dab color inside the designs and onto the fabric.
Let dry for 24 hours.
Peel away the freezer paper and insert the pillow form. This project works great with canvas tote bags as well!
