I Just finished two of these in a few hours! Super easy DIY. I always knew I wanted to DIY these but I wasn't looking forward to hand sewing and stuffing the little pillows since I do not own a sewing machine. I found the perfect solution at Tuesday mornings the other day!
1 spool of 5/8" Satin Ribbon Cost $1 (I found it at the Dollar Tree)
1 package of fake (6mm) pearl beads Cost $1.19 (JoAnns)
1 package of fake rings Cost $1.19 (JoAnns)
2 "Keepsake" pillows with a little spoon Cost $4 apiece (Tuesday Morning)
This is what the pillows started like:
I took the ribbon off with a seam ripper.
Then I found the middle and sewed some thread through to the back and added a pearl button.
I sewed back through to the front and sewed through my ribbon.
I threaded a pearl through my string.
Then I threaded the string through the ribbon and not through the pillow and I pulled it taut so there would be a depression in the pillow where the center and the beads are. Then I tied it off under the ribbon so the knot wouldn't show.
Then this is what I had:
Then I sewed little pearls on each of the four corners.
And tada! Finished Product!
Hi my name is Sarahbeth and I am a full time mommy to the most wonderful little boy ever. Johnathon is the light of my life and I'm so glad I found someone who loves him half as much as me. I enjoy arts and crafts and scrapbooking as well as reading and caring for my son. I love to try and parent my son as naturaly as possible, so I still breast feed and we cloth diaper.
For my wedding I was DIY queen! I DIYed everything from my veil to the flower girl baskets to the favors! It got tough at times but I loved every frustrating minute of it! I really felt lik me wedding was a personalized celebration and I had my fingers in every piece of pie which was great because I am a bit of a control freak. :-)
