Felt Leaf Tree Skirt

Remember that pretty felt wreath pillow from yesterday? Well, Jody from Homey Home Design loved it so much she decided to whip up a matching tree skirt this year. Jody sewed a simple tree skirt and then added her felt leaves and pom poms with fabric glue. If just the thought of making your own tree skirt wears you out, Jody encourages that it was much simpler and took less time than expected. Maybe she’ll add stockings to the collection next year!

Felt Wreath Pillow

Here is a beautiful, yet super simple, DIY holiday pillow from Jody at Homey Home Design that features a felt wreath with pom pom berries on a drop cloth pillow cover. I love how Jody shows that you don’t have to be a master seamstress to make a pretty pillow. A little fabric glue does the job quite nicely with this wreath!

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow

Pillows made from authentic feed sacks can cost a pretty penny, but Char from Crap I’ve Made shows it’s pretty simple to get the same look for less. Char created her pillow cover from drop cloth and then jollied it up with a stenciled Old Saint Nick. She scuffed up the image with sandpaper for a well-worn, vintage feel. No, it’s not made from a fifty-year-old grain sack, but, personally, I’d rather have a pillow customized with my choice of graphic, text, color, etc.!

Fabric and Ribbon Corkboards

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!

French Stripe Lampshade

Kathleen at Musings from a French Cottage has her pooch to thank for this project! It was he who destroyed both of her bedside lamps in a month, propelling her to buy new lamps and then refab her original drum shades with a drop cloth slip cover and some paint to achieve the look of […Read More]

Knife and Fork Curtains

Check out these fun and unique curtains made by Brooke from All Things Thrifty.  There’s not much that’s more appropriate for a dining or kitchen area than the utensils you chow down with! Of course, you know I love Brooke’s choice of drop cloth fabric for the curtains, and the stenciled knife and fork came […Read More]

Bar Stools with Numbered Fabric

Amy and Emily from Sisters of the Wild West were inspired by their love for typography to create barstools with numbered drop cloth cushions. The sisters actually created the fabric themselves using a template they had previously used to stencil a tabletop. The custom upholstery took the barstools from run-of-the-mill to one-of-a-kind. Amy and Emily […Read More]

Christmas Glitter Pillow

Here’s pillow number 3 from my Christmas pillowpalooza over at Infarrantly Creative. I cut the ornaments from glitter transfer paper with my Cameo and then ironed them onto my drop cloth fabric. I added some satin ribbon and sewed up an envelope closure pillow form. I am loving me some glitter lately so the sparkle […Read More]
