Hey y’all, and happy Saturday. I hope your week has been full of Christmas festivities and joy. I need this month to slow down, because Christmas is way too close. And, I’m just not ready for my beautiful tree to come down anytime soon.
I really just wanted to pop in here and let y’all know a quick DIY I did this week. With family coming to town, I wanted to spruce up the guest room with some simple Christmas decor.
I was super blessed this week when a good friend of mine gave me a bag of prelit garland. I mainly used it in the guest room, and specifically on my favorite vignette below.
I’m always so fond of Christmas pillows, but they can be a bit pricey and break the bank a little. So, I decided to shop around my house to look for something to recover a pillow I already had.
I came across the pillow below and figured the front would be easy to cover, because the back was line in white. Then I rummaged through the Christmas leftovers that I didn’t use for decorating this year. Luckily, I was able to find the below table runner. I honestly cannot remember where I purchased the runner, but for this project I could easily make 3 to 4 pillows with the green houndstooth table runner. The fabric was thick, so it really helped to cover over the blue pattern on the pillow.
My motto with cooking and really projects in general, is “if it ain’t 6 steps or less, i ain’t doing it.” And my motto fits this project to a tee and it’s super easy.
You will need the following items to complete the DIY pillow:
- Glue stick for the hot glue gun
- Hot glue gun
- Fabric or repurposed fabric
- I used the pillow as a guide and it perfectly covered the front of the pillow. Literally all I had to do was cut one side of the runner to adhere to the pillow. I know that you may not get as lucky with all sides covering without cutting, but I bet you will be surprised what’s lying around your home.
After you cut the sides to fit your pillow, you will finish the final step. Hot glue the edges to the pillow all the way around.
After the edges are glued, you are ready to style the pillow in your home. I hope this inspires you to rummage through your home and create what is already there.
Enjoy your weekend everybody ❤️
