I had seen a watercolored pillow somewhere on Pinterest awhile ago and thought it would be a fun activity for the girls to try. It didn't take much prep, just a few Martha Stewart craft paints (in colors I thought would best coordinate with both decors), paintbrushes, two 20" Ikea pillow covers and lots of drying time!
I had the girls start out painting with foam brushes (I thought it would distribute the paint better on the fabric) but Layla quickly asked for a regular paint brush. So they used both.
Layla created a color-block design, while Hadley opted for a more color-washed look: )
I had them each paint one side of each pillow that way Noni and Grandma would have piece of artwork from both of them!
I love how they turned out and can't wait for them to make one for our house!!
Noni and Grandma loved their gifts and now have a functional piece of art from both of their girls!!
