I adore color and simple DIY projects so I combined the two to create some pretty painted throw pillows for my pink sofa. This is really one of those projects that anyone can do. Really! You don’t need to be an artist to create great throw pillows. Just layer painted shapes to create an interesting pattern. And if you don’t love your design, you can always let it dry and paint over it too!
The pillow covers and inserts are from Ikea which means each one was only $7. You really can’t beat that! Since so many pillows I see are over $100, these are cheap enough to swap out each season. Or just when you get bored and want to change your room decor every other month like I do!
After making the pillow shown in the video I grabbed the smallest foam pouncer and dipped it in the black paint to create the dot patterns. If you don’t already have them, I recommend you pick up a set! I find so many uses for them (like my polka dot wooden tray) and they really are the easiest way to paint small circles.
