I was so excited to hear our theme was pastels….
Because in the spirit of keepin’ it real, ya’ll 
I just took down my Christmas decor (gasp)!
I needed this in the worst way.
Modern art is so fun this Spring! 
I knew right away that this was what I would make.
I needed some color in my life.

I chose some basic craft paint at Michaels that were 
.50 cents to $1 a piece and bought 
a giant canvas that happened to be “buy one get one free” that week 
(so I’ll be making something else soon!). 

All I did was start with one color, spread it on all over the canvas in random spots and then moved onto a different color.

There are several different styles of modern art, popular this Spring.

I decided to try a couple of them out on some old pillows! 
I promise, these pillows have seen better days. 
My husband felt like I was taking it a little too far… 
painting on pillows. But what does he know?

I also did a little updating of some other pillows. 
Scroll down for a quick how-to and some free templates.
This was some clearance scrap material from IKEA that I used to cover another old pillow. My sewing machine is currently being repaired. So I sat on the floor while watching TV one night and did this by hand. Cut out a piece of fabric using your pillow as a guide.

I sewed mine together right sides in, 
then took it off the pillow and  turned it right sides out.

I used this cute bunny template, cut it out of burlap 
and hot glued it to an old pillow.
