DIY Painted Pillow Cover

Today is a fun day.  Today I have teamed up with four other amazing ladies with one simple challenge, #5WaystoDIY a pillow!  We all were tasked with taking the same pillow (we choose different colors) and putting our own design spin on it!  Today I am sharing my DIY Painted Pillow Cover.  And I’m so excited to say that we are doing a giveaway with a chance to win $250 to shop at AllModern!

First, I removed my pillow form from the case and put some folded wax paper inside so my paint would not seep through.

I, then, applied washi tape loosely 2″ apart to keep my brushstroke pattern straight.

I added fabric medium to my paint colors to keep the paint from cracking once dried.  And then it was time to paint the pillow.  I used free handed herringbone pattern.  I used the washi tape as a basic guideline for my negative space.

Once I was done painting the entire front, I removed the washi tape and set it aside to dry.

I was so pleased with the soft pastel brushstroke look and it was a perfect addition to my guest bedroom.

  1. Love this! It’s so simple and fabulous. I haven’t found the right pillows for my daughter’s nursery and I’m not particularly good at sewing so getting a premade pillow & painting is RIGHT up my alley. Awesome post, pinning. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Sam! Yes, even pillow sewing is kind of tricky for me… but painting pillows, totally do-able! Good luck.

  2. This is just too cute! I wanted to let you know that I’m featuring this post tonight at the Create & Share Link Party (7:00 PM MST)! Congratulations!!! Can’t wait to see what you share with us this week. 🙂

    1. Thanks Vida! I did use fabric medium but that was simply so the paint wouldn’t crack. I don’t think this particular paint is machine washable.

  3. 100% pinned and loving this simple, creative idea! Love love the colors you chose and how it all comes together on the bed! Saying hello the creative collection!

  4. Another fab easy project – love it! These are just the colours I’m thinking of for our living room so I am now forced to pin this idea!!

  5. Great colors, and the rough painted look makes it look so cute. I’d like to see more up-cycles and garden DIY!

  6. Love this idea and the colors you chose are so pretty! I’d like to share this project in my weekend features post, with a link back to you, if you’re ok with that. Seriously, the cutest pillow cover!

    1. Thanks so much, Sarah! It goes perfectly in our guest room. Thanks for including me on this fun DIY blog hop.
