Today is a fun day. Today I have teamed up with four other amazing ladies with one simple challenge, Five Ways to DIY a pillow! We all were tasked with taking the same pillow (we choose different colors) and putting our own design spin on it! And today I am sharing my DIY Herringbone pastel Painted Pillow Cover.
What supplies do I need to paint a pillow?

How to start a painted herringbone pattern
First, I removed my pillow form from the case and put some folded wax paper inside so my paint would not seep through.
Next, I applied washi tape line roughly 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. And once I was done painting the entire front, I removed the washi tape and set the pillow aside to dry.
I was so pleased with the soft pastel brushstroke look and it was a perfect addition to my guest bedroom.
