DIY splatter pillow cover

Hey everyone! It’s Angela from Number Fifty-Three and I have a super easy and inexpensive project to share with you all this month.
I’m kind of in love with the whole popularity of tie dye in home décor. Additionally, my boys and I have been a bit obsessed with the artist Jackson Pollack for a few years now. I love both because they are just such free expressions of art and I wanted to incorporate this into our home in an unusual way in a DIY splatter pillow cover.

This project is so quick, takes just a few supplies and makes a big impact. It’s a perfect project to do with children of all ages, too.

 You will need: Plain pillow cover (I used the Gurli Cover from IKEA), Liquid Rit Dye in various shades, spray bottle, cardboard and a pillow form).
 spray bottle splatter pillow
I very simply cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside the pillow form to protect against bleed through.
I then mixed my dye in the spray bottle, one color at a time. I didn’t really measure, but just added one part dye to approximately six parts of very hot water and shook well.
Do a few test sprays to get out any of the unmixed water and then you are ready to begin.
Make an easy DIY splatter pillow
I sprayed both sides of the pillow with the dye, varying drips and blotchiness by how firmly I depressed the trigger.
Once I was satisfied with the first color I thoroughly cleaned the bottle and began the process again with my second color.
I let the entire pillow cover dry and then added in my pillow form.
