Paint Some Bling On A Pillow

As I showed you when I took you on a shopping spree, I am going to do Tartan Plaid-Cable Knit and Fur for a Elegant/Chic/Rustic Christmas in the family room.  With that all decided it was time to figure out what I was going to do for the Living/Dining Room.  

I had one yard of this fabulous Malachite fabric and I also have some Malachite wrapping paper.  I thought that called for a White-Silver-Gold-Malachite Glitzy Christmas for the living room.

This fabric is amazing, but it doesn't have any bling.  I want to up the anti, so I started playing.


 I got out my favorite gold leaf metallic paint and started playing with a scap of fabric.



I just did a bunch of random strokes and I have instant bling.


I love the sparkle and shine - and this was totally free.  I already had the paint.



I had just enough for two pillow fronts, so I used some dark green fabric for the back and I piped them in some gold glitzy fabric that I had.


It's a cloudy day so I can't get a good picture, but here in person, this pillow is just sparkling.  Love that.

  Take any pillow you have, even a plain one and paint a little bling on it.  A wider brush and heavier with the paint on white canvas creates a really dramatic effect.  


  It's amazing how it transforms a pillow.

If you want some bling this Christmas, just paint it on.

I think crafting runs in the family.  I just have to show you this really cute horseshoe pumpkin my son made for his girlfriend.  Is this cute or what? I love it.


So how about you, have you got your craft creating bling or are you more creative?

  1. How cute that pumkpin is! And the gold paint is a great idea! I'm going to have to try that. How long does it take to dry? Can the pillow covers go in the washer and dryer?

    1. Depending on how thick you paint the gold, it dries really fast. I sewed with mine in an hour. Not sure about the washer and dryer.

  4. I LOVE this!! I enjoy using Martha's metallic paints but never looked to see if they could be used on fabric. Is it washable? I'm guessing yes since they're acrylic, right? Which gold color did you use? It looks just fabulous! Of course, this is right up my alley since I have a tendency to walk around my house with gold paint and a brush and 'if it ain't nailed down, it's turning to gold'... ;-) Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. Marty, you and I have the same pillow for Christmas this year, but mine won't have the sparkle or glitz. I posted it in the chatroom today. I will enjoy seeing yours come to fruition!! Do you mind sharing your source of the malachite gift wrapping paper? Enjoy your decking the halls, Falalala!!
