Love the organic shape of leaves? Choose a few of your favorites and use fabric paint to capture their images forever with this simple painted pillow project. I find white sheets at the thrift shop for almost nothing and make great pillow covers. This makes a great gift!
Fabric paints (available at craft stores)
Old throw pillow
Fill the pillow cover with folded sheets of newspaper.
Dab paint on each leaf and press individually onto one side of the pillow cover. Allow the paint to dry. Repeat on the other side.
Remove newspaper only when both sides are completely dry to keep paint from bleeding through. Insert an old throw pillow and admire your handiwork! See how easy that is? Have fun!
