  • fabric
  • cotton cord
  • hot glue gun

Apply Weather Stripping

First, protect your rolling pin by covering it with a piece of cardstock — use tape to secure. Cut three equal pieces of adhesive weather stripping and stick them on the rolling pin, over the paper, in an evenly spaced stripe pattern. Start with one piece in the middle, then add one on each side. Cut off any excess.

Roll and Paint

Mix fabric medium with acrylic paint and pour onto a flat tray or work surface. Roll the pin through the paint, making sure to cover all of the weather stripping evenly. Lay towel flat and roll the pin over the towel to create flour sack-like stripes. 

Apply Cotton Cord

For a second set of smaller stripe detail, wrap the pin in a second piece of paper, secure with tape, then hot glue cotton cord or twine in three small stripes around the center.

Roll and Paint

Pour a second, complementary paint color with fabric medium onto your work surface, roll the pin in the paint, then roll onto the towel going the opposite direction of the first set of stripes.
