3/31 | DIY Galaxy Pillow

Hey, everyone! If you’re anything like me, then you love galaxy crafts! They seem to never go out of style, not to mention they’re so much fun to create! There’s no rule book on how to make the perfect galaxy pattern. Most of the time when you just paint with the flow, you end up with a beautiful design. Back in October, we made a DIY Galaxy Pumpkin that was a huge hit! So, today we’re making another one for you, some great DIY Galaxy Pillows! You’ll have a blast making them and you can use them for years to come. Check out how we made them down below!

Step 1:
Paint the entire pillowcase with Americana Multi-Surface Black Tie.

Step 2: With your sponge, blot your Extreme Sheen Sapphire around the pillow and then blot the Americana Multi-Surface Bird Blue over that.

Step 3: While the paint is still wet, blot all your other Extreme Sheen colors on the pillow around the blue base that you created. Be sure to lightly accent your blue pattern and to not overdo the blotting.

Step 4: Now with a paintbrush, splatter Americana Multi-Surface Cottonball all over the pillow to create starts. Then, paint little stars wherever you like.

Step 5: Once it’s all dried, fill pillowcase it with stuffing and display your amazing new galaxy pillow!
