To tie dye your pillow case-

2.Pinch the very center of your pillowcase and twist it.

3.Spray on your dye. If you want your colors blend in a bit more, try spraying on just a little bit of water. Let it dry completely. Once dry, place in dryer for approximately 20 minutes, as the instructions on the bottle says.
