My son's plain blue Bible cover fell apart. It was not repairable. So I saved…
What comes to your mind when you think of Fabric Spray Paint? Did you know that there is such a thing?
One of my most popular posts is the one I did showing how I made my son a personalized Bible cover with handles and a zipper. Well, that was several years ago and he has grown out of it.
When he recently turned 9, I wanted to get him a Bible that had some special features. I wanted him to be able to do some studying on his own, and to have a “thumb index” to easily find the different books. And it needed to have easy-to-read print. So many Bibles have such tiny print. Finally, I found this Bible which comes in several colors including blue.
Everything You Will Need to Make this Bible Cover
I have linked each item in the list below for your convenience.
- Bible cover with pockets
- Vinyl and Fabric Spray (I used about half a can)
- Frog Tape
- Wide Ribbon
- Flag tabs
Next, I wanted him to have a new Bible cover to go with his new Bible. I thought about making him another one. I searched in a local bookstore for a good one, but they seemed more geared towards women. I like pretty Bible covers, but I needed a special one for a young boy, not for me!
Eventually, I found one on Amazon that I thought he would like better than any of the other store bought ones or a homemade one. This cover is really cool with various pockets. It even came with a little compass! But there was a little problem…. it was green. Knowing that my boy prefers blue over green, I knew that I needed to make it blue for him to like it.

Just now I showed my son what I was writing about. His mouth dropped open. He had had no idea that I had painted his Bible cover! Did you realize that you can use Fabric Spray Paint to change the color of a Bible cover? People use it to change the color of outdoor pillows, or a fabric covered headboard. Now you know that it can also be used to change the color of a Bible cover!
I really want my son to develop a relationship with God through His Word. That is why I did everything I could think of to give him the opportunity to be successful with the highlighters; and I also gave him extra flag markers. The candy? Well, because of course you need peppermints in church to help you stay awake. : )
