DIY Pillowcase Wall Art


Good evening, everyone! I hope you are all having a great night! I have a quick, easy and inexpensive project to share with you tonight!

It all started with this…pcase5

You might be wondering, “what exactly am I looking at?”. Well I will tell you… that is a tiny little tear in a canvas. I don’t know how it happened, but I bought a 5 pack of 16″ x 20″ canvases from Michael’s and by the time I got around to opening them, one of the canvases in the middle of the pack had this tear. Since it was in the middle, I knew there was no way that I could have done it, so I was kind of mad, but I also HATE returning things, so … oh, well. I was going to just toss it, but thankfully my smarts kicked in. (Come on, Holly — get it together!) First rule in DIY — Never, ever just toss something out with out thinking about it. You never know when you could use it!

Tonight, I finally found a use for this canvas!

I had this pillowcase that I had picked up from the dollar store…yes, the dollar store. I have never used it. I bought it simply because I loved the design on it, and I knew that one day I could do a DIY with it! We won’t mention that it took me over six months to find a way to use this pillowcase (oops). pcase4.jpgCan I just say that the dollar store has seriously stepped up their game!

This project is so easy, and it took me about 20 minutes to make this! 20 minutes and I know have a beautiful piece of art.

Give this video a watch to see how I did it, and feel free to share this video with all your DIY lovin’ friends.

I did add a little extra piece to my art, though. I cut out a pretty quote with my Cricut cutting machine on some heat transfer vinyl and then used my press to seal it on.14455805_10154589672999851_1479007823_o If you don’t have these pieces of equipment available to you. You could always use a stencil and some fabric paint, or see what other creative ideas you can come up with. Share your ideas with me. I would love to hear them!

Let me know what you think of this project! Give this a like and share with your family and friends!

Have a good night everybody! I am off  to bed! 🙂

  1. Well isn’t this fun – and simple and creative and gorgeous! All things I love <3
    I'm not sure my local dollar store is quite up to the same caliber, but I have a collection of memorabilia t-shirts that I don't want to get rid of that will probably work PERFECTLY just like your pillowcase!
