How to Decorate a Pillowcase Step by Step

As an example, we will analyze in detail the very first idea from the pillow case designs we offered.

Preparatory stage. First you need to prepare the necessary art supplies, choose the desired option from the pillow cover ideas listed below, and prepare the pillowcase itself. Be sure to pre-wash, dry, and iron the pillowcase before starting work. Before applying the picture, secure the pillowcase to a flat surface with duct tape and place a piece of cardboard inside to prevent possible ink leakage. Regardless of which design you choose, the preparatory phase will be the same in all cases.

Stage 1. Draw a wreath of leaves and berries. Press the plate firmly against the pillowcase and use a pencil to trace around the rim to outline a circle. You will need a sketch of this figure to create a symmetrical circle, along the contour of which you will draw a wreath. Use green and blue markers to draw the leaves; and markers of red and burgundy to complement them with berries. Take a gold marker and draw stars as decoration. Draw the vine along the contour of the wreath with strokes of black color.

Stage 2. Draw a bird inside the wreath. To create such craft pillow cases, you need a pre-prepared stencil. Press the bird stencil firmly against the pillowcase and trace around it with a pencil. Tint the entire body of the bird with a white marker, and then tint the wing with a gray marker. Add details to the drawing: draw a red crest, add texture to the feathers on the belly in turquoise, draw the bird's eye and beak with a black marker, draw legs and outline its tail.

Stage 3. Add a gold lettering. Inside the wreath above the bird, create a graceful lettering with a motivating phrase or wish. Use a gold or glitter marker for this.

The final stage: Securing hand painted pillows. Wait a day for the drawing to dry well, then iron it through a cotton cloth at maximum mode for a couple of minutes. After that, the drawing can be washed.
