DIY No Sew Pillow

never doubt the power of a beauty tablecloth i say!

not long ago, i upholstered my kiddos headboard with a funky table cloth i found. i had some left over fabric laying around and remembered a Pinterest crafting eve the Purple Eggplants had back in January where we created no sew pillows, with some felt and a glue gun. we were not blogging back then so didn’t capture any fancy photos of all of our creations, but here is one of them.

312403_10152673774560107_78233220_nAndie found this super inspiring tutorial from the Crafting Chicks and created a gorgeous purple felt flower pillow that had no sewing that Mel and i were oggling over. with Andie’s guidance on our “Pinterest-ing Eve” we all left happy with our new fancy and simple pillow creations !

{our goal is to have monthly creating sessions, and we are keeping track of our “must crafts” on our shared Pinterest board. any cool crafting ideas you’ve found? please share them with us in the comments section !}

with the leftover headboard tablecloth fabric, i duplicated the yellow felt flower pillow. super simple. i was a bit worried about hot gluing the fabric, but so long as you fold in the open edges and place a line of hot glue between them, it works just as well as the felt did !

a headboard and pillow with a $14.99 table cloth. i say that’s one sweet deal !

fabric and felt

i am also digging the felt on fabric look too. so much that i found a funky body pillow pillowcase that i think will make some pretty cool looking pillow covers once i am through with it !

DIY monogram art canvas for toddler room … Or any room !

i have become in love with collage walls and they have begun to appear everywhere around my house !

displaying memories has always been important to me. when we moved in to our home and had a stair well with wasted walls, i got to framing and hammering ! i then was inspired by funky montages on Pinterest that i moved on to the playroom…and i basically have no wall space anymore !

well…except a thin wall in my C’s room ! so i decided a while ago to create one for her and continue to add to it as i see special items that are uniquely her.

here is a simple and frugal way to showcase your kiddos special first letter in 3 simple steps with 5 supplies.

all you need is:

  • 5×7 artists canvas (or bigger depending on your wall space)
  • wooden letter (i found a white one but you could get as creative as you want with this)
  • favorite (or leftover) fabric
  • staple gun
  • glue gun

and this is what you do:

  1. eyeball your fabric and cut it so you have enough to pull it around and staple to the back
  2. get to staplin’
  3. using hot glue, stick your letter to the fabric

thats it !

…and for under $5, you have a piece of art created by you that looks poretty neat too !

a great addition to and existing wall collage or even cute on its own
