Valentine’s Day may be over, but that doesn’t mean we have to pack up all the hearts. Jennifer from Endlessly Inspired created this heart-covered pillow that’s neutral enough to grace your space year round. Jennifer used two different shades of linen to make her pillow, and it still only cost her $9.50, which is a far cry from the $198 price tag of her inspiration. She did an amazing job achieving the beautifully frayed edges of her inspiration, and you won’t even believe how simple it was!

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, the last thing you want to dish out hundreds of dollars for is décor. Especially considering it will only be out a couple of weeks! Dena from Hearts & Sharts was in shock when she came across a heart pillow with an outrageous price tag of $198. She literally dropped everything and made the pillow in under an hour just to show how easily (an inexpensively) it can be done!

While I am not much of a seasonal decorator, I do have a soft spot for a pretty pillow. Lisa from Concord Cottage is always inspired by the beautiful pillows and bedding at Pottery Barn and replicated an appliqued heart pillow using fabric and craft paint from her stash. That means FREE my friends! Lisa says that even if you have to purchase the materials you are only looking at spending about $3, which is a far cry from $29!

Melissa of Two It Yourself created an adorable stenciled heart pillow for Valentine’s Day. While her inspiration wasn’t square or made of burlap, Melissa says that’s what’s so awesome about DIY. You can make your pillow cover to fit whatever pillow form you have at home! I love that this design has a pop of color without being over-the-top, in-your-face Valentine’s colors. And, if you like the non-traditional, you could always customize that stand-out heart to coordinate with your décor – just another perk of DIY!
