Hi. It’s Jeanetta and I am back with part 3 of Pattern Play on “Symbols”. In Part 1 we discussed the origins and significance of symbols and in Part 2 we made a pattern based on the theme of “Symbols” which we used to create pillowcases with a print-on-demand company. We love how they came out and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day we put a fun DIY spin on our pillows, that puts the magic of glow-in-the-dark paint to work!

Materials:
– Glow-in-the-dark paint  (clear or multicolor)
– Paint brush & water
– Pillowcases (or your choice of fabric)

1. Using a brush, paint heart shapes all over the front panel of your fabric.
Tip: If the paint is too thick dilute with a little water.

2. Let dry and place pillows into the cases

3. Turn off the lights and see the big reveal. This magical DIY makes the perfect little surprise for your Valentine!

      Thank you. Yes! It makes a fun activity for kids. They can use the washable glow-in-the-dark paint on fabrics and there’s endless things you can do with it.
