  1. Place a small cardboard in between the pillow’s cover to avoid paint smears.
  2. Next, draft your chosen style using painter’s tape. Try creating different lines that intersect with each other to form quirky shapes.
  3. Using a paintbrush, carefully paint the spaces between the painter’s tape with your chosen color. Make sure you fill the spaces neatly by painting in one synchronized brush stroke.
  4. Let it dry then slowly peel the painter's tape once dry.
  5. Use your finished project in the living room or bedroom.

RL Tip: Feel free to experiment and be more creative with your designs. Draw patterns, write your name or favorite quote using a Sharpie pen or pentel pen to make your piece even more personal.
