Stenciled Number Pillows

If you follow me on Infarrantly Creative or have been around KOD for some time, you know I have a little (okay… a big) thing for making pillows. One of my favorite time savers is using ready-made covers from IKEA just like Erika from Retropolitan did to create these number pillows. Since the covers cost just a few dollars each, they are still cost-effective for the DIYer and provide a great starting point for stenciling and embellishing. In just an hour, Erika was able to make all four of these stenciled number pillows!

CONFESSIONS-OF-A-PLATE-ADDICT-Pottery-Barn-Inspired-Spring-Wreath-Square_thumb20.jpg

As the name of her blog implies, Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict has a little love affair with plates. And… if you read KOD regularly, you know Debbie has made a pillow or two in her time. Well, let’s also add wreaths to Debbie’s list of obsessions! Debbie couldn’t resist creating her second spring wreath, a combination of twigs, pussy willow, and sparkly eggs, since she had almost all the needed materials on hand. Debbie’s newest wreath addition cost her only $7.50 compared to $79 for the PB version!

Framed Burlap Bunny Silhouette

I thought I would squeeze one more Easter decorating idea before the big day tomorrow. This adorable bunny art by Jessie from Dream and Differ is quick and easy, requires no fancy tools, and can easily adapted for other holidays. All Jessie did was trace an image printed from her computer onto the burlap and then paint it in. Even after Easter tomorrow, the bunny will be a cute addition to Jessie’s spring vignette!

Bird’s Nest Cupcakes

What better way to dress up your table for Easter than with décor that looks good enough to eat… and actually is! It wasn’t the pretty flower arrangements or sparkling glassware that caught the eye of Jennifer from Jennifer’s Mentionables as she browsed through Pottery Barn’s Easter catalog but their tasty bird’s nest cupcakes that double as dessert and décor. How sweet is this?!?

Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage is loving herself some pom poms right now. So when she saw the adorable Crinkle Puff Quilts at PB Teen, Kelly had to have one for her daughter’s room and knew she could easily fashion one herself. Kelly got to work making her own pom poms out of yarn and then attached them to a white quilt she already had. Kelly says, “This project is so easy and no-sew! I’m so happy with how it turned out.”

Built-In Laundry Cabinet

When Tricia from The Little Cottage on the Pond moved into her new house, the small, empty laundry room was hardly an inviting space. A set of cabinets from Pottery Barn sparked her desire to create a room where she could actually be excited about doing laundry. (Hard to imagine, huh?) Tricia’s husband scaled down the plans for Pottery Barn’s cabinet and recreated their vintage style with inexpensive plywood. Don’t let the charming exterior deceive you… this cabinet is all business on the inside, providing tons of storage for cleaning supplies, mops, brooms, and even a vacuum!

Stenciled Burlap Lampshade

Traci from Beneath My Heart was flipping through her Pottery Barn Kids catalog when a burlap lampshade caught her eye. And… surprise! It wasn’t because it was exactly what she’d been looking for and knew she could make it for less. On the contrary, Traci had already created almost identical lampshades for her boys’ room three years prior! Pretty striking resemblance, eh? Traci can proudly say, “Pottery Barn copied me!” {Giggled}
