Wash and press the drop cloth, then cut the front of the cover 1 inch larger than your pillow and the back 1 inch wider and 4 inches longer than the pillow.
Cut the back into two equal pieces along its width. Where each piece was cut, double-fold and sew 1/4-in hems.
Cut out the design with a crafts knife, leaving "bridges" for sturdiness. Lightly spray the stencil with spray adhesive.
Roll the foam roller, saturated with paint, over the stencil until the desired effect is achieved.
Let dry, then place two small pieces of tape on the sides of each "bridge" area; stencil that area with the edge of the roller or with a small foam brush.
When dry, lay the two back pieces on the front piece with the hems, facing out, near the center. Sew together using 1/2-in seams. Turn the cover inside out to hide seams; insert pillow.
