Coco Chanel once said, “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” Now, what does style icon Coco Chanel have to do with throw pillows? It’s actually pretty easy – if you’ve got terrific ones, then anyone visiting your home simply admires the decor and thinks you have fabulous taste.
But if your throw pillows are meh, or “so-so” then that’s the thing they notice the most!!!
Fortunately, if you are a DIY-er, this is a super easy fix. We’ve found you 40 terrific projects, to help inspire you. Whether you are brand new to this type of project, or more experienced, there is something that will work just for you. DIY-ing your throw pillows also lets you get a 110% custom look, which makes any room look as if its been done by an interior decorator (or maybe you are BFFs with one!). You can choose the exact fabric, specific colors and patterns and what embellishments, such as embroidery or fringe to put on them – or not.
This project is one you can also be pretty much guaranteed will be completed by the end of a weekend. So you can buy the fabric and other items on your way home from work on Friday, and by Sunday afternoon, be cozily leaning against your brand newly DIY-ed throw pillows that you know everyone in the family will love!
If you are fairly new to DIYs, this is a project that may also help to boost your confidence. Because pillows and pillowcases don’t have a lot of steps to create them. Most of them can be done by a beginner with ease. Yes, there are a few in this collection we’ve pointed out would probably be best for an advanced DIY-er, but take a look at the tutorial to see if it works with your own skill level before deciding you can’t do it.
So, let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
