Have you ever had a book nook or perhaps an empty chair that desperately needed just a little something? Whether it was some color or some texture, you knew that a throw pillow or two would solve all of your problems. So you decide to check online or get real crazy and go to a store to check out the throw pillow selection, you find the perfect one, and holy smokes, the price far exceeds what you thought the going rate for a single throw pillow was. We promise you, we’ve all been there. Well, we’ve decided to get creative and start making our own because even with all of the necessary supplies, it’s still cheaper to make them, so let’s get started!
We love all things boho, and because these pillows are so neutral and totally customizable, they can be made to go with just about any style you’re going for. The beauty of making your own throw pillows is that you choose the colors, you choose the size, you choose the textures, well, you get it. And the best part about these pillows? You don’t even need a sewing machine. All you need is a pillow cover, a pillow insert, fringe, pom-poms, whatever details you want, and some liquid stitch. Get the full instructions here!
If you love Anthropologie, but don’t want to spend Anthropologie money on throw pillows, then you’ll love this Anthro-inspired DIY with all Dollar Tree supplies. The only catch is these pillows require a little bit of sewing, but it’s such simple stitching you can do it with your machine or your hands. All you’ll need are some rugs from the Dollar Tree, different colors and textures of yarn, thread, scissors, and stuffing. Just to put things into perspective, the Anthropologie pillow is anywhere between $70 – $90, and these cost about $3 each to make. Get the full instructions here!
These pillows are a little more involved, but so very worth it. We love how luxurious velvet looks in any context, so, of course, they make great little accent pillows in any color for any piece of furniture. To make these pillows you’ll need velvet, thread, a sewing machine, fabric scissors, a ruler, pins, and stuffing. We adore the simple pinwheel design and we don’t hate the idea of sewing a quirky little button smack dab in the middle. If it’s not a circular pillow you’re on the hunt for, these are just as customizable and can be cut into any size of any shape you need. Get the full instructions here!
