Home accessories can brighten a day and instantly freshen up a room; these DIY pillow projects are a personal way to add an artistic style to your home decor.

DIY projects are fun because you can add your personal touch to the things you create. Generally, projects you tackle turn out to be the things you need the most and get the most use out of. This paint-by-numbers DIY pillow project is a little more involved than other crafty projects, but the outcome is totally worth it.

Someone who dabbles in paint will already have the required supplies, but if this is your first time putting brush to canvas, you will need to pick up a few things. Paintbrushes, fabric markers, masking tape, paint-by-number guide and multi-surface craft paint should do the trick. Use a heavyweight cotton pillow back for the best results.
