I am forever on the hunt for quick and easy ways to decorate my home with inexpensive and unique designs. I recently created these painted DIY pillows for my home and got so excited because the technique is so simple that you can even let your kids in on the fun and let them create a design for their bedroom or create a few extra pillows and give them as gifts.
To create your own DIY Painted Pillow you will need:
An inexpensive cotton pillow (mine are from H&M)
Stamps, Paint Brushes, and Rulers Optional, depending on your design
Before you get started, make sure to fill your pillow with either a piece of cardboard or a plastic bag to keep the paint or ink from seeping onto the back.
You can free hand your design like I did with paint and a paint brush or here are a few more glimpses of what the ladies did with the technique at our recent Craftenhagen using fabric ink pads, stamps, and a ruler!
