I love throw pillows and how they can brighten up your home. I like to use colors that I may not be so brave to try on the walls, or to use pillows that are themed for seasons and holidays. When all my children were small the pillows would always end up all over the floor, or piled up in stack for a fort or some creation they were making. I got so sick of constantly picking them up and keeping them clean, that for awhile there we didn’t even have any decorative pillows.
Now that my youngest is five and everyone helps with chores and keeping the house clean I think I can go back to more pillows! I was just out pricing throw pillows and could not believe how pricey they are! Fortunately, there are many DIY pillow ideas to create your own inexpensive pillows, and to even cover up old, stained ones! You can find tons of throw pillows for cheap at thrift stores. I can’t wait to try some of these out. This would be fun to do as a home-ec project with your kids as well.
