Linking up with DIY day with Kimba:
‘Tis the season for crafting…so I’ll be posting a few of my little projects this month)
I wanted new holiday pillows but I didn’t want to spend much of our limited time and money. This is what I came up with. They are simple, easy (10 minutes), and cheap ($5.50 each) and festive…feel free to copy the basic idea and tweak it to your color scheme/style.
The first part is the hardest. You have to go to Walmart. Sorry to send you to THAT place during the Christmas season! but if you know somewhere else you can get a red twill pillow for $5, go there. I can’t even find thrift store pillows that cheap! I looked at making the pillows but by the time you add up fabric, foam insert, and binding? It costs over $12! So to Walmart we go for Red Twill Pillows…
Then to Dollar Tree. Hey, you’ve already been to Walmart-don’t get fussy.
They have these thick felt snowflakes, 2 for $1. (They also have ornament and tree shapes in red and green-I like the snowflakes because they represent my flaky family well)
I had this, but if you need to buy it-it’s at Walmart too, around $3. It glues fabric REALLY well and is great for projects that are difficult to sew (or saggy hem rescues on the way out the door to church. just sayin’)
I liked it so much I did the opposite on the other side of the room! Then He-Who-Is-Twelve-and-Male ruined the festive mood by screeching “Cool! Bloody snowflakes!”
