Hi and sorry for the lack of posts on my part. We just got back from two weeks away (5 days with two sick kiddos) and I am just now coming up for air! I have lots of stuff to show you from my thrifting and yard sale excursions - but I'll save those for next week. Today I thought I'd show you an easy way to update boring pillows, wrapping paper or even a wall!
Triangles seem to be the new chevron so when I was thinking about the kind of pillows I wanted for the two chairs at the girls' craft table in the basement playroom I thought those would look cute and modern stamped in black on these old Ikea pillow slipcovers.
All you need a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, craft paint (+ a fabric medium if you plan to wash the pillow) and scissors.
I traced a triangle shape onto the Magic Eraser and then cut it out - I had enough to make two triangles. Squirt a little paint onto a plate and then dab the shape into the paint. Make sure you test the shape on a piece of paper or paper towel to make sure you like the coverage.
I dipped my shape in a few times - I liked the way the coverage varied from triangle to triangle.
Below is how they look on the chairs...easy project that took about ten minutes!
I also tried stamping on paper (with a chevron-like shape!) with two colors of paint this time.
|Repeat the same steps as pillow stamping.|
This would be fun to do on craft paper for pretty DIY wrapping paper.
Have a lovely Thursday all!!
