DIY Valentine’s Day Pillows

In Lifestyle, Living by Carrie Beth & JenLeave a Comment

We are self-proclaimed throw pillow addicts. We have them for every season, every holiday, and a multitude of colors. Our view is life is short, and you can never have too many throw pillows. February presents itself on the calendar, and we have so many throw pillow possibilities – the biggest being Valentine’s Day. Now this little addiction of ours can get expensive, but we’ve found the trick to keeping our habits satisfied without breaking the bank on all that fluffy cuteness. We created these adorable Valentine’s Day pillows for less than $5! That’s right – all your throw pillow dreams just came true.

This inexpesive DIY is super easy, and (bonus!) easy to store when done! What’s not to L-O-V-E?

How to create your own DIY Valentine’s Day Pillows

Needed supplies:
– 2 Pillow covers (Or however many you like! For the love of throw pillows – get a little crazy.  We found super inexpensive 18×18 ones at Hobby Lobby, Amazon, and even our local dollar store.)
– 4-5 packs of red poms
– Hot glue
– pencil


Instructions
:
1: Before you begin your project, iron your pillow covers. It’s easier to do this before you start the project than after you’ve adhered your design.
2: Plug in your hot glue gun and set aside approximately 3-4 extra glue sticks for use throughout the project.
3: While your glue is warming up use this time to trace the designs you desire on your pillows with a pencil. For this project we cut out a heart we printed online and free handed the word “love”. The possibilities are endless though!

4: Begin tracing along the lines of your designs with the hot glue. Go slowly and place down the red poms as you go. Repeat until complete.

5: Once cooled remove any extra glue.
6: Insert pillow into pillow cover. (With that little throw pillow addiction we know you have plenty of extra in storage. Just pop one in and no one will ever know last season’s Christmas pillow is this season’s Valentine’s Day pillow.)

7: Display and enjoy!

The best part about this little decor project, aside from it taking only about five minutes to complete, is that once the holiday has passed we can simply unzip the Valentine’s Day pillow cover and easily store it for next year!
