I love a good upcycle project, and today I am sharing a super easy one! Glitter and sequins seem to be all the rage this holiday season, and ever since I saw these gorgeous pillows in Mandi’s Epic Room Makeover I have been on the lookout for one. No luck finding it… but I DID find this awesome dress at Ross for $10. Score! Here’s a look at the before and after:
Pretty sweet, right? The skirt on the dress was completely lined and already sewn to the perfect width for an accent pillow. All I had to do was cut the top of the dress off, turn it inside out and sew up that side.
I had a $2 pillow in my stash from IKEA, and I just stuffed it in to make sure it filled out my new sequin dress/pillow… perfect fit. I closed it by hand-stitching the bottom edge.
I absolutely ADORE the shine and sparkle coming from this baby! It is the perfect holiday pillow, but I’ll be using it all year round
For more pillow ideas, make sure to come back today at 1:00, PST for a live Google+ Hangout with one of my best blog friends, Emily from 52 Mantels. We’ll be showing you guys lots of easy ways to update your pillows for the holiday season!
We love linking to these parties!
