No-Sew Antler Pillow

West-Elm-Knockoff-Antler-Pillow-ItsOverflowing

Aimee from It’s Overflowing shows it is possible to create a knock-off pillow without a needle and thread. Aimee let her Silhouette Cameo do almost all the work for this project! All she had to do was iron the perfectly cut deer head onto a ready-made pillow she snagged on clearance at Target. As Aimee asks, “how can something that simple be that cute!?!”

As Amanda from What Hopes and Dreams are Made of points out, glass lamps are a great fit for pretty much any color scheme or decorating style. It leaves little question to why they have soared in popularity! Amanda got in on the craze by making her own bottle lamp from an apple juice jug she already had. Amanda’s lamp came in at only $24.50, and that includes the shade!

I always know Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict won’t let me down when it comes to creating fabulous DIY pillows on a dime. The girl has out-pillowed even me! In preparation for Valentine’s Day, Debbie created this French telegram pillow using an iron-on transfer.  With tons of texture, Debbie’s pillow far surpasses her inspiration in my book!

Decoupage “LOVE” Canvas

Yesterday I shared a wooden “LOVE” sign to get your sweet and sappy Valentine’s creative juices flowing. Anna from My Life and Kids turned to her tried-and-true scrapbook paper and Mod Podge technique to create a wall canvas with a similar design. The piece of art found a permanent home in her baby’s nursery but would also make great holiday décor.

With Valentine’s Day just at a month away, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how to show your décor a little love. Cristina at Remodelando la Casa repurposed some ceiling beams and plywood into a wall plaque in honor of the day of love. I’m all about that pop of red Cristina added to spice up the monochromatic art!

Pam from Our Adventures in Home Improvement has been blessed with a husband who can build just about anything. Each Christmas he likes to make her a piece of furniture, and 2012 found them in need of table for behind the couch. Pam and her handy hubs modified the design for a buffet from Pottery Barn that provides plenty of storage for extra dishes and such. I can only dream of being able to build a piece of furniture like this!
