Since we changed up our bedroom, the previous color scheme was not working anymore. I had several pillows that just no longer looked right on the bed, but that I kept because there HAD to be a use for them eventually. You know you do that too!
I like to change things up sort of frequently, so I was looking for a way use the pillows I had, but not change anything permanently. My mom had given me a little decorative throw....
and when she gave it to me, I thought, "What am I ever going to do with this?" But mom was changing up one of her rooms (it's gotta be genetic!) and insisted that I could use it somehow. So I put it away in my closet and never thought about it again until this morning.
I flipped over a champagne colored pillow that was embroidered on the back, cut a sash from the alternate side of the throw, and tied it around the pillow.
Totally and completely no-sew! I gathered and saftey pinned the center together,
and then took a trip to Hobby Lobby....that 40% off coupon was burning a hole in my purse.
Hobby Lobby was almost out of primary colored candy melts, which was the reason for the trip, but a few aisles over....a whole shopping basket FULL of red, blue, green, and yellow candy melts!!!
I actually let out a pretty loud, "YES!!!" No shame, my friend, no shame! Lego candy...but not today.
On the way to the checkout stand, I grabbed a couple squares of felt and cruised on to use my coupon.
Flower time. I wanted to make this felt flower with two different colors and was so happy with how it turned out. I cut out 12 large petals and 6 small petals, and started layering, gluing as I went.
Slap a little beaded accessory in the center and this bad boy is finished. I pinned the flower to the sash and put it on my bed.
It coordinates nicely with the lattice pillows on my bed already and I LOVE the texture difference between the velvet on the sash and the felt.
50 cents later, I have a totally updated pillow and next time I change up the room, I can take this all off and slip cover it again.
