Diy projects out of drop cloths
Hey,hey there! Today, I am sharing some projects I have done in the past out of drop cloths. At the end you can find all the supplies needed to create your own pillows, curtains and more.
Drop cloths are an inexpensive way to make curtains, pillows, tabletop and more projects. JUST one drop cloth can get you far. You can stencil them, paint them, and even embellish with a decorative trim. Make them your own and impress even yourself!
They are diy projects out of drop cloths you can do inexpensively and they look great! Did I mention they are NO-Sew?
You know how inexpensive drop clothes, better known as Painters tarps are?
You can get a lot of mileage out of one.
I will start with some of my most recent ones…
Then a kitchen stenciled drop cloth pillow from way back when
WOW,that was two years ago already!
These diy drop cloth curtains I did for my older boy Alex’s room a few years back
when I gave his Teenage bedroom a makeover
These drop cloth curtains were inspired from my
initial makeover of Jack’s tween bedroom makeover
These too as well, were painted and stenciled.
Both rooms pretty much remain the same.
No need for changing these drop cloth curtains out, as they go with everything!
I found another drop cloth project I did a few years back
an easy diy memo board facelift.
And my most recent diy placemats with drop cloths
Drop cloth curtains for the porch

You definitely got your monies worth out of your drop cloths, Debbie! I have some soft ones I picked up from Lowe’s. I’m hoping they will be even softer once I wash them. I’m going to make another set of chair slips for our dining chairs with them. I’m also hoping I have enough left over drop cloth from my master bedroom side table skirts to recover a little footstool.
Oh so cute!!! Really love the utensil holders with the rooster stamp. Why am I so drawn to roosters??!
Have a great day!
Me too Anne, I don’t know why I love them soo!
I love all your projects! So creative and talented. I was wondering……I bought a 9’x15′ drop cloth. I have a king size bed. Wonder if it would work as a bed skirt???? I haven’t washed it yet to even try it. But was just wondering if you had given that a try??
I have not done that, but I believe you absolutely can. I don’t see why not.

Debbie, such creative ideas!!! I love the kitchen pillow! I’m thinking about slip covering a little settee with a drop cloth. I just need the TIME!!!
You blog is so inspiring and so are you!
Love every single one of these. I do have a question if you can get around to answering. On your kitchen pillow (adorable!!) you say you used craft paint. I’m not sure what kind to get. Can you recommend one so that I’m sure to get the right thing? Thanks
Hi Holly, I used plaid craft paint. Now keep in mind, I won’t be washing this pillow. I know they sell washable crafts paints as well. But Plaid is always my big go to…great colors too.
Don’t mean to but in however I like getting helpful info from other crafters. There is a wide selection of fabric paints that are washable. I made a pillow cover several times like a pillow case and put ties on it so I could remove it easily to wash. Just a thought. God bless
I love these cute drop cloth ideas. I really love the utensil holders too also the memory board. That is too adorable. Rooster are habit forming!!!!!!

Debbie when do you sleep? I love it all. You are so clever but the rooster items are my faves.
I love anything and everything drop cloth! my favorite material! I look every time I go into home depot for their “special” deals…. they are so cheap when they do it that way.

I also want to know when do you sleep?? lol Love all of these. Pinning. 🙂
Sleep at night when y’all all do..a good solid 7 hours!
Hi Debbie. What a coincidence. I am headed to Lowe’s today for a new drop cloth. I want to put one up on the covered patio to finish off my outdoor room.
Love those things.

I love me some drop cloth projects! You have made some beautiful things, Debbie.
I love all of these ideas, Debbie! I never thought to paint drop cloth. I love the stenciling, too. I have a ton of this stuff…time to use it!!
Love, love, love!! I’ve been thinking lately to use drop cloths as curtains. Do you wash the drop cloths before painting and once painted, are they stiff? Love your ideas!!!~~Angela
I just love that wagon in your sons room…awesome
I love that little wagon in your boys room…awesome
I got rid of the dark ugly curtains in our kitchen, and made new ones using drop cloths. I love them! It’s so much brighter in there now. I have a lot of material left over, I love the pillows you did, I think that’s my next plan. Thanks Debbie! 🙂
Great ideas Debbie!
I have the drop cloth all ready!
Linda @ Itsy Bits And Piecesd
I love the look of drop cloths, too! I’ve recover chairs with them, and created backdrops for Junk Bonanza with them, too!

You are the reason painters are slopping paint all over the southeast. Naughty girl!
You are awesome as usual.
Love ya girl, Ginger
Ilove them too, I covered to chairs with them and made an area rug with one, I shellacked it after painting it, I made tote bags, a sewing machine cover and big sac to hold my kids soft balls and basket balls, I LOVE these drop cloths!!
hope I am looking at same drop cloth you guys are. says made out of canvas, 9 x 12 $20.00. Just wasn’t sure if that was good or canvas to heavy, but love the look of yours. The shelf said painters drop cloth, should there be something different that says tarp on pkg.?
Yep, that is the same:)
Deb…I wanted to see more of your drop cloth ideas but when i click your link it won’t display the page …Says the page can’t be found…I am pretty sure i am clicking it right..not sure what’s going on…am i the only one who can’t see…Cause I Really Want Too… 🙁
Hi hope all well my name is Tracy I am from South Africa, and follow your website
everday, would love to now where do you get the stencils with love on do you
make them yourself or do you buy, and is it just material paint you use.
Hi Tracy, nice to meet you. I get my stencils from any hobby shop, even Walmart has some stencils. People do make them as well, but that requires a special paper and printer which I find buying them much easier. Yes, any craft paint will do.
I may have missed this, but wondering if you wash the drop cloth first. I heard it shrinks really bad. Does it lose shape by washing before? I want to make some curtains and dont expect I will need to wash them a whole lot and I don’t want them to lose their shape.
Ideas on washing?
Beautiful I will have to find a drop cloth what some awesome and cute items
Awesome so many Creative Ideas
