DIY Pillow IKEA Hack

DIY Pillow IKEA Hack

I don’t know if you’ve noticed by now, but pillows are one of my favorite things to make.  I love that they are a small element of a space that can instantly change the look.  Since I’m constantly changing things up it’s a great way for me to make something new and spruce things up.

This DIY can also be classified as an IKEA hack.  I love IKEA and I do shop at IKEA very frequently but there are two things I will never buy from there: pillow covers and art. I can spot an IKEA pillow or art piece anywhere I go.  I personally don’t like things that are cookie cutter and recognizable in my space.  I want pieces that are personalized and one of a kind, so even when I shop at places like IKEA I try to finds ways to tweak them to make them look more interesting.

This pillow for example is made from a $4 rug and a $4 cushion.  The rug is something you’d probably overlook or maybe not need, but because it’s a rug I thought it would make a heavy duty pillow, something that is durable for outdoor furniture and you will not find any outdoor pillows for under $8 anywhere. It’s such an easy and cheap way to brighten up your outdoor furniture.
