Our first pillow is one we made from fabric purchased from IKEA and felt purchased from a local craft store. Felt is a fun and inexpensive way to spice up your pillows. The felt we used on these pillows, came to a total of $1.74. Just by adding that small amount of felt, it changed these pillows from blah to beauty. The overall cost for this pillow cover was under $5.00.

Our next fun pillow is one with classic charm. By adding some DIY vintage flowers to the front of the pillow and crystal tassel trim to the sides, the pillow becomes a focal point of your decor. Kallie found all the fabric for the small price tag of a $1 a yard for this beauty. So for a GRAND TOTAL of $2.06 for all the ingredients,you can have a darling vintage pillow cover from scratch.

This ruffly beauty was inspired by a pillow I saw at the local Parade of Homes. I tea-dyed the lace to make it look antique, and wrapped it spirally on the pillow to create the ruffle flower. Although this pillow was our most expensive project, this pillow cover only cost us $8.25 to make!
