I wanted to show you a quick and inexpensive way to add cute Valentine’s Day decor to your home, by making this no sew Valentine pillow.
I’m not much of a seamstress so, I love it when I can throw together a cute pillow without busting out my sewing machine.
Hobby Lobby has some great pillowcases that come in a bag and they can range in price depending on the material. I like the plain linen one, because it gives me a blank canvas to work with. You can decorate these pillowcases easily with paint using stencils, iron ons and you could even sew on your own design.
Here are my Supplies:
- 18×18 pillow (JoAnn’s $14.99 after using a 40% coupon)
- 18×18 pillow case ( Hobby Lobby $3.00 after using a 40% coupon)
- Polka dot burlap (JoAnn’s $9.99 yard)
- Circuit iron on for lettering ( JoAnn’s $9.99)
- Red embroidery thread and needles ( Michaels $1.29 & $2.99)
- Heat-n-Bond iron on adhesive (Michaels $2.99)
*Keep in mind you have plenty of burlap for other projects. You really don’t need a yard if your just doing a little design.
With this particular pillow I took a piece of polka dot burlap I found at JoAnn’s and cut out a heart shape. I fused it to the pillow with the heat-n-bond. Next, I cut out the letters with my Cricut machine. Don’t worry if you don’t have a machine you can use a stencil for the lettering. I just happened to find red glittery iron on that matched the red on the burlap so I went with that. Once I had everything iron on I topped off the heart with some red embroidery ribbon around the edges. Super easy and fast! I think all together it took be around an hour to finish. The most time consuming part is going around the edges with the embroidery thread.
Here is the finished pillow.
I hope this gave you some inspiration when decorating your home. Thanks so much for stopping by!
