diy sequin pillow...simple bling!

Hey, everyone ~ hope you had a cozy weekend curled up by a fire if you were in the path
 of that freezing blast of winter. We braved single digit temps and went out for our usual
 Friday night dinner, after negotiating we settled on Thai food. My sweet mom cooked for
 us on Saturday night, and sent us home with enough yummy leftovers that I didn't have
 to cook Sunday either, so I had time to diy this blingy sequin pillow. :)


If you missed the diy urchins last week, they are super easy, too!


I wanted something new to go with the Pottery Barn Poinsettia knock-off pillows I
 made last year. It was a quick, unchallenging little project - my favorite, and I used items I
 already had, that means it was free! 
A scrap of burlap fabric, a package of sequins in two sizes, my glue gun, and my favorite
  Ikea down pillow form

The instructions for making the pillow are the same as this one for the
Pottery Barn Poinsettia tutorial, except you glue sequins on the front.



 1) Cut your burlap to desired size.
2) Place paper under burlap to catch glue that seeps through.
3) Apply glue to back of sequin and attach to the burlap in desired pattern.
4) With right sides facing each other sew the sides of the pillow, leaving one
 side open to insert the pillow form. 

That's it!
