Rachel said she’d get pillows but I’m near Ikea and I knew that they’d have something so I drove up and they were on sale! These covers were on sale for $3 and the inserts were $2.99! Each of us picked out our favorite color and I got us hooked up.
I decided to do a shape rather than a word so it could be up year-round. I loved this metallic pewter and gold paint she brought so I used that first and put this flower shape around the pillow cover. Then I added the black…blergh. After I did the black I wished I hadn’t – but it’s fine.
But together our pillow’s look great! And it was so simple! The Ikea pillow covers are also a very thick material so we didn’t even need to put anything in between the layers.
So the how-to is super simple:
* Lay out your pillow covers flat
* Choose your design (stencils, freehand, etc) and draw your design in pencil on the pillow case (trust us on this one)
* Use fabric paint to fill in the design
* Let dry for 15 minutes
* Insert the pillow
And this was a $6 craft – and seriously – look at that couch – that could be in a magazine – right?! 😉
