DIY gift guide: Sparkle 'n' shine pillow shams

 
We fell in love with these so-chic throw pillows from Pottery Barn Teen, but at $29 a pop for just the pillow cover, they’re out of our price range for ourselves, let alone the girlies we wanna gift! So what’d we do? Come up with a way-easy (and affordable) DIY!

 

What you’ll need:

A pillowcase (throw pillow size or a sham) and insert (or make your own and stuff!)

Sequins

Needle and neutral thread (or hot glue gun and glue)

 

What you’ll do:

Ever-so-lightly, sketch your design onto the pillow case using pencil. We love "XO", initials and cute phrases. Then, using either hand-sewing or using a hot glue gun, begin attaching the sequins. You want the edges to overlap, so start at one end of your design and continue in as straight and uniform a line as possible. When your finished, tie off thread (or set aside to dry completely), then stuff  the pillow (or zip-in the insert), wrap in tissue paper and gift!

 

Snag the original at pbteen.com and do a good deed--$14.50 of every purchase goes to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

 

Want more ideas? Try using the same technique on a canvas tote bag (find them at any craft store) or a t-shirt.
