DIY pillows: 5 minutes + $5

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a project that is DIY at its best.

You know what these are?


Lined ones...

Which happen to be on clearance right now at Target.

And thanks to the inspiration from the Lovely Etc. blog, I'm going to pass along the fantastic idea of making them into pillows!

Step 1: Find some inserts.

(I used a couple 14x14" pillows from around the house that I wasn't using - these are from thrift stores so they cost $3 each)

Step 2: Cut open one end of the placemat

Step 3: Stuff in your pillow

Step 4: Sew your open end shut

Step 5: Decorate!

Group shot!

Since I do not have a sewing machine it took me closer to 10 minutes to make each pillow. If you do this with a machine it would easily be a 5 minute project, (though 10 minutes for beautiful pillows at $5 is still awesome)!

And for some Merry and Bright pillows for the upcoming holidays...

Thank you for stopping by!
