, 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!
We fell in love with these so-chic throw pillows from
What you’ll need:
A pillowcase (throw pillow size or a sham) and insert (or
make your own and stuff!)
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.
