DIY Watercolor Pillowcases


Watercolor paints
Fabric painting medium
Plastic bag or tarp to cover work surface
Paint brush


1. Get pillowcase wet and wring it out.
2. Place the pillowcase on a plastic-covered surface.
3. Wet the watercolor paints to soften them and paint the pillowcase. The paint will transfer to both sides, so there is no need to paint the back separately.
4. Mix 2 parts of water and 1 part of fabric painting medium in a cup.
5. Coat the pillowcase with the fabric painting mixture.
6. Allow to dry flat. Speed up the drying process with a hair dryer. Iron the pillowcase to set the color, or dry it on high heat in a dryer.
