We’re back with another addition of 5 Ways to DIY! A couple of months ago I teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you 5 Ways to DIY Wooden Trays, you might remember my DIY Triangle Patterned Tray. This time we are each taking a solid colored pillow and giving it a little DIY makeover to add personality to match each of our styles.
I teamed up the Delineate Your Dwelling, Sarah Hearts, Pars Caeli, and A Bubbly Life. We all started with a solid colored pillow from AllModern, that has a hidden zipper and removable cover. These pillows come in every color imaginable. If you have a specific color you are looking for, I bet you they have it.
I’m still playing with the color cobalt blue and I love it with pale pink, so I decided to do some simple cross stitching in a all over pattern. I think it has a sweet homemade look, but still feels modern and clean.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Solid Colored Pillow
- Large Darning Needle
Start by removing the pillow insert and then mark out a grid, spacing the dots 2 inches apart. I used a piece of chalk so that it could be brushed off once the pillow was finished.
Then using a large darning needle and some yarn, begin stitching the crosses on the pillow. I simple used the chalk dot as a guide for the center of each cross. They are not all exactly the same size, but I wanted it to look handmade and have some variation. Each cross is about 1 inch by 1 inch.
Now how simple was that? Be sure to check out all 5 Ways to DIY. Do you have a favorite? Oh, and don’t forget to enter to win the $250 gift card to AllModern!!!! Then you can buy enough pillows to try all 5 of the DIYs! Enter in the rafflecopter below.
