Spread glue on the outlined area
The glue is now completely dry
Tie ties around the pillowcase really tightly!
Here is how it should look after it is all tied up.
Now start adding the different paint colors!
It is finally time to snip off the ties with a scissor. Be careful :)
Now the ties are fully untied, let dry completely

    Do I peel the glue off or does it come off in the wash? I turned on English CC but I am still confused on that part. Thank you :)

      I see no one answered your question. It will just come off in the wash 👍🏼 No need to peel it off first or anything. Hope that helps,,
