We decided to make a stamp in the shape of Arlo that you can apply to anything! To start, you’ll need the Arlo stamp template, craft foam, a piece of cardboard, a pen, tacky glue, acrylic or fabric paint, a paint brush, and a pair of scissors. For our DIY, we decided to make a pillow, which means you’ll also need a plain removable pillowcase and a pillow insert.
First, print out the Arlo stamp template and select which size you’d like your stamp to be (for our pillow we chose the 3 inch version). Carefully, cut out the Arlo template you’ve chosen.
Next, cut a piece of craft foam that is slightly bigger than your template. Trace the template onto the craft foam using a pen, and cut it out.
Take your Arlo-shaped craft foam silhouette and glue it to a piece of cardboard that’s slightly larger. Then, your Arlo stamp is complete!
To customize a pillow like we did, prepare your workspace with the pillowcase, paints, and paintbrush. We mixed two greens together to create the perfect shade for our pillow.
Using your paintbrush, apply the paint to your stamp. If you get paint on the cardboard, use a paper towel to wipe it away.
Now it’s time to get stamping! Repeat the process of applying paint to your stamp each time.
When you’re done, let it dry and then decorate your space with your new Arlo-inspired pillow.
