DIY TIME: How To Make Your Own Dip Dyed Pillows
When you buy these dip-dyed pillows in the store, they can sometimes be $200+ so on the show, I decided to share two simple versions of creating your own custom pillows. The first involves holding your pillowcase in a bucket of dye and hot water and repeatedly dipping, submerging a bit more of the pillow case each time to create an ombre (fade) effect. The second part involves taking your dyed pillow cases and painting with bleach to remove the dye. You can use any color and paint any pattern you want. For this project we opt’d for a calming, natural indigo and created a tribal, bohemian splatter pattern to keep the pillows on-trend!
