If you are artistically inclined, use a pillow as your canvas! Heather of Fake It Frugal seems to be a natural when it comes to Painting on Pillows. She used basic craft paint for her project.

A great Pillow Makeover at Tatertots and Jello. You have to see how this star(fish) pillow looked before it was painted!

painting pillow with bleach pen
And you'll never guess what was used to paint this Sand Dollar Pillow. A bleach pen! What a neat idea. The image is traced onto the fabric with a disappearing ink pen. Who would have thought that painting pillows can be magical! Painting pillows is a great solution if you can't find a design you love, or the exact color to match your decor!

Remember when painted everything was in? I went as far as painting sheets to jeans! It's nice to see it back in a softer way...Love the starfish pillow.
