Step One: Using the large paint brush, paint the bottom left corner of the pillow with the dark pink fabric paint. Make the edges soft by brushing outwards with a pretty dry brush.
Step Two: Use the sponge with light pink paint on it and dab around the dark pink corner.
Step Three: Slightly overlapping the light pink area, dab on a layer of white fabric paint using the sponge. Be sure to clean the sponge out between colors.
Step Four: Dab on a layer of the light green fabric paint just slightly overlapping the white section.
Step Five: Using the large paint brush, go in with the dark green fabric paint. Make a solid rounded stroke all the way along the painted area.
Step Six: Using the small paint brush and black fabric paint, paint on the seeds in the dark pink area.
I think this project is so cute and it turned out great! Who wouldn’t love to add a pop of color to their space with this adorable pillow? This would also make a super cute and thoughtful homemade gift for a friend or family member who you know loves watermelon! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, happy crafting!
