DIY Paint Patterns

Painting patterns has become one of my favourite things to do while watching movies. Its fun and literally the easiest thing to do. If you can hold a paintbrush you can do this.

  • Draw any kind of pattern you want. The one I am doing is based on a duvet cover I saw in IKEA.
  • Paint!

And voilà. You made a pattern. Don’t worry about it being perfect. I find the imperfections make the pattern more interesting to look at. You can also use decorative paper punches to make a stencil to trace around. Just like the ones I have done below.

  1. Yes, you inspire me too – the simplicity and the colour are deceptive. Not that easy to accomplish. I too might try making some patterns with paint. I wondered if the marbling could be done on fabric – but I think there are all sorts of other products that do that sort of thing.
