Make Seasonal Pillows from Placemats!

I love this idea from Danielle at My EnRoute Life for getting Pottery Barn quality without the expense! While shopping for pillows at an outlet store, Danielle came up with the clever idea to turn $6 fabric placemats into pillows by pulling out a seam and filling them. Her pillows came out beautifully and were seriously so easy. Pure brilliance!

Danielle was inspired by Pottery Barn’s fall pillow covers like the Pumpkin Embroidered Lumbar Pillow Cover.

  1. Brilliant does not even begin to describe this idea! I love it!

  2. Seriously BRILLIANT! I especially love that you can buy cute placemats in ANY color scheme… and they’re usually wayyyyy cheaper than pillows! Love me a good PB knockoff! πŸ˜‰

  3. I’ve done this in the past by using placemats from Target!!!! It really is super easy. πŸ™‚
