DIY Sequin Pillow

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 :)

    i think i saw that pillow just the other day at the homegoods in farmington, utah. in the new station park center. i don’t know if you are in utah, but i see a picture of the SLC temple on your wall, so i’m guessing there is a chance you are.

    AHHH!!! This is sooo awesome!! I love sequins and that pillow looks expensive-amazing how you can recreate anything when you put your mind to it. Great job, I will be on the lookout for clothing markdowns after seeing this!

    Great idea. Going to keep my eyes out for anything pre-sequined or maybe even velvet ?!? I don’t have a blog. Found you through Pinterest, of course. Will follow your board now. Thanks so much for sharing! j.
