Basic Supplies

paper, pencil, scissors, freezer paper, iron

Directions

STEP 1

  • Iron freezer paper onto inside front of pillow to create stable painting surface.

STEP 2

  • Print out pattern onto white paper.

STEP 3

  • Apply thin line of Black 3D fabric paint, following pattern on white paper. See Photo 1.

STEP 4

  • Lay paper painted side down on center of pillow cover, pressing lightly. Carefully remove paper from pillow. Let dry. See Photo 2.

STEP 5

  • Use paintbrushes and soft fabric paints to accent skull design as desired. Let dry.

STEP 6

  • Cut strips of Peel & Stick Tape to fit edges of pillow. Cut pieces of lace to match length of edges of pillow. Apply black lace trim around edges of pillow. See Photo 3.

STEP 7

  • Insert pillow form into pillow cover.

Tip

  • 1. Apply the thinnest line possible of 3D paint to paper to avoid distorting design. Pressing too hard on the paper when applying design to pillow cover will cause 3-D paint to blur out excessively.
