Embellish! Super Easy Pillow Pin!!!

After two days of computer/internet issues and camera problems this tutorial is now ready to post! I love flexible ways to add juicy embellishments to pillows, lamps, etc. So, today I thought I would share a super easy way to make a ho-hum pillow shine, with the addition of a custom pillow pin.


You will need:

1. A piece of ornamentation that you love

2. E-600 glue

3. Skewer

4. A scrap of card stock or cardboard to squeeze a dollop of glue onto

5. A pin back (you can find these at a craft store)


Here is a close up of the pin back. They come in various sizes and you will need one that fits your piece.


Using your skewer, apply a bit of glue to the back of your object.


Then press your pin back into the glue and let the glue set for approximately 6-8 hours.


After the glue has completely set, you may pin it to your pillow. And WaLah! Your have a one-of-a-kind creation!

For this pillow, I made a cover of washed and dried burlap scraps. After the adhesive had completely dried, I added a loopy bow, made of seam binding. The pin was made of a piece of discarded furniture ornamentation.

I hope you have a wonderful Independence Day!!!
