Of course, I chose to use gold (per usual).

But this is your chance to go wild with color in just the right amount.

How to Make a Gold DIY Ombre Pillowcase

First of all, how many people can say they actual have pillowcases covered in liquid gold?

Not many, so you’re welcome for that little bragging right.

Step 1 — To get started, insert a magazine inside the pillowcase so it doesn’t bleed.

And then tape down the pillowcase to make sure it won’t move about with your brush the paint on.

Step 2 — At the edge of the pillow, paint the gold inwards with a dry foam brush and lift the brush up a little bit as you paint so it gives it a faded look.

Do this all the way across the edge of the pillow and then let dry. Now, just insert your pillow and style!

  1. So pretty! I can’t get enough of gold accents. It looks especially great with the against the white simplicity of the room.

  2. Love this idea! But not a fan of the gold, maybe a brighter more vibrant color. But each to their own. :) Kind of reminds me of this scene… “That’s his sheet back there” http://youtu.be/CpkAsDrxk4Q
