I was given a Cutting Edge Stencils Paint-A-Pillow kit to review. All thoughts are my own!
It’s Fall and Halloween is at the end of the month! Yay! We just moved into our new house and I am SO excited to start decorating for the holidays! Before we moved out of our old house, I was sent some Halloween Cutting Edge Stencils to try out and review. These are their new line of stencils, so they want to get the word out about how awesome they are. I don’t blame them!
When I was asked to do this review by Cutting Edge Stencils, I thought they would send me a few tiny stencils with a pumpkin or simple little Halloween character and that I had to go out and buy all the rest of the products to make my Halloween craft. So, when the package arrived at my door, I was SHOCKED! It was huge!
Their Paint-A-Pillow kit box took up half of my large kitchen table, and it came with everything I needed to make my Halloween Pillow craft!
From the pillow cases, pillows, paint, stencils and all of the paint supplies, it was all there. I did not have to go to the store and get anything! I love that they send you all the things you need so you can just open the box and have fun!
They did end up sending a small stencil, but it was only for testing your painting techniques on a small piece of scrap fabric. It was nice to be able to practice using the paint tools and the stencil before decorating the big pillow cases.
And I do mean big! Each pillow case is the size of a regular decorative pillow, about 2’x2′ They definitely do not skimp on size or quality. Even the pillows are big and cushy! I love the Paint-A-Pillow kit because the case is secured in a cardboard stencil holder and the stencil is secured down by tabs. There is no having to secure or hold down the stencil yourself, the kit does it for you so you can have your hands free to paint!
In addition to the large stencils that are secured down by the tabbed pillow case holder, they also give you smaller stencils that allow you to add details on top of the parts that are already painted. I was able to paint some windows onto my black haunted house and a creepy pumpkin face to my pumpkin. I didn’t really care for the creepy pumpkin face, but I was able to make it a little more friendly by writing “Happy Halloween” on the pillow above and below it. Overall, I think they turned out so fun, and I can’t wait to display them this month in my new house!
All in all, I really was impressed with these Cutting Edge Stencils. They were super easy to use, the instructions were easy to follow, they came with everything needed to make a stenciled pillow, and they are a great quality! I would definitely use them again for future projects and I would definitely be interested in buying other stencils for other projects. I have checked out their websites and they have stencils for just about every project you can imagine. Can’t wait to see what my next stencil project is!
In the meantime, I would love for one of you to win a $50 credit to Cutting Edge Stencil so you can give them a try too! I really think you will enjoy the products they have to offer.
