DIY: Watercolor Throw Pillow


Welcome spring with a decor accent that highlights the colors of the season! We’ve made a pillow cover that’s perfectly pastel, and just the thing to brighten up your space after a chilly winter.

Plain canvas pillow case

Rit Dye powder (Fuchsia and Royal Blue)

Paint brush
