As a result, I’ve been trying to come up with more ways to incorporate it into my living space. Lots of beautiful mudcloth pillows have been appearing on my Instagram feed, but I’m not too fond of the hefty price tag they come with! At around $50-80 a pop, I wanted to come up with a cheaper alternative! This is why I decided to create my own DIY mudcloth pillows, and I’m going to show you how can make them too!
Step 1: The first step is to plan out what kind of mudcloth design you want to draw on your pillow cases. I highly recommend practicing on a piece of paper first, or drawing an outline in pencil that you can trace over. Trust me. I didn’t practice and I completely messed up on my first one.
Step 2: I continued drawing on my pattern until the whole pillow case was covered. A helpful tip is to work on a sturdy flat surface or place a piece of cardboard in between your pillow case. This way it will be easier to create crisp lines.
Step 3: After your pillow has been decorated with a beautiful mudcloth pattern, we want to make sure that it stays that way. I like using Scotchgard™ Fabric Protector to keep my pillows looking their best! I love the fact that it repels liquids and blocks icky stains, without changing the look or feel of the fabric. The application is super simple and you only have to reapply after every cleaning, or annually. You can also use it to protect your fabric couches, chairs, curtains, shoes, and clothes (basically everything).
Now that your pillows are properly protected, they are ready to beautify your home! I decided to place them on my bed, but I think they would look great anywhere you decide to place them 🙂
I hope you guys enjoyed this DIY tutorial! Do you guys love mudcloth as much as I do? What other fun DIY projects would you guys like to see with this pattern?
I picked up Scotchgard™ Fabric Protector on one of my weekly trips to Target! I even have a $2 off coupon for you, if you’d like to pick one up too (it’s in the same aisle as the carpet cleaners, under the multipurpose products section)!
