Hi everyone! Do you have some pillows that you want to get rid of because you’re tired of them? Or maybe you want a new look but don’t want to spend the money for all new pillows? I thought I’d share a few easy things that I do to revitalize pillows to get a bit more use out of them and to just get a new look.
I bought this pillow at Ikea last year and wanted to spruce it up a bit. I thought about adding some red pom pom fringe and that looked cute but not quite right. So I tried some other ribbons that I had and found just the thing.
I used some fabric ribbon and fabric glue to outline the monogramming.
I didn’t want to take the time to miter the the corners so I just folded them under.
I like how the monogramming pops now!
I made a pillow out of an old sweater last January. It was super easy! Here’s how I did it – What To Do With An Old Sweater.
This year I added some white pom pom fringe. I just sewed it on the outside. And the best thing is that it’s easy to remove when I get tired of it and I can reuse the fringe!
Everything looks better with some pom pom fringe!
Here’s a pillow I found at the thrift store a few years ago. Very cute – but the bee had to go!
I added a little panel of toile that I sewed right over the bee part. I also added some buttons down the middle. This is a great way to get a whole new pillow and it doesn’t take much fabric to cover the front of an old pillow!
I hope you’ll look at your old pillows in a new way now. Look around and see what you have that you can use to change them up. A scrap piece of fabric, some trim, maybe some buttons, or brooches even if you like a bit of bling. It’s an easy and affordable way to get a new pillow without really getting a “new” pillow!
