Happy 4th of July everybody! I hope you are having a lazy day full of family, food and fun. We are definitely doing some relaxing around here, after painting cabinets most of the day yesterday. We are about 1/4 of the way through the project and I am completely in love with my new white cabinets!
Painting your cabinets will definitely make an impact in your home, but it’s a TON of work. A MUCH easier way to alter the look of your home is to change up your pillows.
Today I’ve rounded up some of the best DIY pillow tutorials – most of these are so easy that anyone can make them! Making your own pillow covers is a spectacular way to update your decor on a budget, and with this list, your options are truly endless!
First up, I’ll share one of my own, a no-sew budget pillow cover that takes about 30 seconds and is great for quick holiday decorating. This method wouldn’t work well for a year-round pillow, but for a holiday like July 4th, it’s perfect.
