Love is in the air…and Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it. I’ve been thinking it would be Love (ly) to add sweet decor touches to our home in honor of the cupids & candy holiday but I want rich & chocolate-y. Not cheesy. So let’s start with this elegant, edgy, super Easy DIY Valentine Pillow.
Over the weekend, it hit me. Cute pillows for the only holiday of the year I don’t like to get flowers delivered; that should sweeten things up around here.
So, several our pillows got a much need makeover yesterday. It was quick, easy and super inexpensive.
If you have any out-of-style or less-than-desirable pillows laying around (like I did) they work great. Don’t go for flat & old. Think fluffy.
And, if you don’t have any f-uglies (yay! you) any pillow you pick up on the cheap will do the trick,too.
Whatever the shape or size, this easy makeover with have you saying…
For today’s Easy DIY Valentine Pillow, here’s what you will need:
Step 1: Free hand the word you want to sweeten 😉 up your pillow project with onto the felt using a pencil or Sharpie.
I went with Love.
Short & Sweet.
Once you’ve sketched your letters, cut them out using good sharp scissors and tack them on by hand with a little needle and thread…
or you can take No-Sew route I did and use some Liquid Stitch to finish up your project, fast.
Of course, once I had the letters on my pillow, I was not feeling the love.
It needed something more to jazz it up. Texture, depth.
So I cut out some cute hearts from a hot pink zebra print fabric I had in hiding in my craft room– stash.
Truth be told, you could use a multitude of pretty things from around the house to add something sweet to your Valentine’s pillow. Like swatch from an dress or sweater you never wear anymore.
Or even sentimental old t-shirt you can’t bear to part with. The skies the limit on the creativity
Either way, make it yours and I know you’ll warm up to the idea of decorating for cupid in a sweet and stylish way all your own.
So, do you like to decorate your home for Valentine’s or not so much? I’d love to hear.
