DIY Holiday Dining Chair Slipcover Instructions
Step 1: On a piece of clear stencil paper, draw a silhouette design with a permanent marker. Cut the shape out with scissors.
Step 2: Lay a pillowcase on a flat surface and place a piece of cardboard inside to prevent the paint from soaking through.
Step 3: Lay the stencil cut-out on top of the pillowcase and, using a foam pounce brush, lightly dab Rust-Oleum® Chalked paint onto the fabric to fill in the stencil design.
Step 4: Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet and then let the paint dry thoroughly.
Step 5: To protect the painted surface and pillowcase from food and drink spills, spray with NeverWet® Fabric spray.
Step 6: For added detail, add pom-pom trim to the bottom with no-sew iron-on tape.
