Jen of Migonis Home describes her decorating style as “classic with a touch of vintage.” She had long loved quilted bedding with pop pom fringe from Ballard and knew it would right in with her home’s décor. Thus, she was inspired to create a cover for a king-sized pillow on her bed using quilt backing [...Read More]
Nicole from Shabby Beach Nest was floored when she saw the price of a bunny pillow that her daughter wanted to get for Easter – $75! Nicole says, “I knew I could make this pillow on the cheap, and boy was I right. This pillow cost me a whopping $0.” I love Nicole’s resourcefulness in using the fabric from an old shirt and dress for her pillow. It cost her nothing and repurposed some items from her stash.
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!
Cupkateer Ananda knew as soon as she saw some felt pillows from PB Teen that she could replicate them for cheap. Pottery Barn charges a whopping $39 for one of their pretty pillows, but crafty ladies like Ananda know that felt’s hardly that expensive! The Cupkateer version? $5! Ananda even breaks it down for you step-by-step with patterns and all so you can make your own!
Rather than purchasing a $100+ pillow in genuine Kravet Windsor Smith Riad fabric, Virginia from LiveLoveDIY decided to make her own stencil and use a Sharpie to create the same look. I love the interest the bold design adds to the space, and a few bucks for a designer look-a-like pillow is definitely something to get excited about!
I can totally identify with Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict who just can’t seem to make enough pillows lately. They are such a quick and easy way to change up your décor for the seasons. Debbie had all the materials on hand to make this summery birdcage pillow. It only cost her $1.51 [...Read More]
Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict created the perfect pillow featuring a bunny to welcome in spring. I mean what says spring like furry little creatures? After finding just the right bunny for her pillow, Debbie used transfer paper to move him to his new home on her pillow cover. Doesn’t he look dignified [...Read More]
