HOME HOW TO: DIY POLKA DOT THROW PILLOW


I am a lover of polka dots. Whether in fashion or home decor, it's my thing. So I started pinning ideas on Pinterest over the holidays and wanted to find a way to bring some polka dots into my current design scheme.

And one easy way to add trends without spending a fortune is DIY. So I hit up a fabric store and bought an inexpensive white pillow, a black sharpie, and went to town. Here's what followed:


When I first realized how much "real estate" was on the actual pillow I almost thought about not doing it. But after about an hour or two, I found my rhythm and I had successfully completed my project from front to back! Now I just have to find somewhere to add my new polka dot throw pillow. I'm thinking about doing this again with a black pillow and metallic silver sharpie. Thoughts?

Is there a DIY decor project you're interested in taking on? Leave a message for me below!

  2. That's the beauty of it. You can make the polka dots as large/small or closely aligned/spread apart as you'd like. I'm going to try it on black pillows with a metallic silver sharpie next!
