As we’re all aware, Valentine’s day is just over a week away. While I love the opportunity to show a little extra love to my special men, I’m not so into red and hearts. Instead, Ev and I partnered up to make a two toned heart pillow. He chose the paint colors and I did the rest.
Using scrap paper, I made a half heart template and lightly traced it on my fabric with a pencil. Using a yard stick, I made a line across to separate the triangular base from the top.
Martha Stewart craft paints claim to be good on fabric, so that’s what I used to fill in. If I weren’t stuck inside due to crazy cold, snowy weather, I would have used fabric.
I’d rather have a lovey design with year round colors, so Ev did a good job with his choices. Dude knows how to pick ’em.
Here are two more fun heart pillows you could make to add some love to your house:
Gold pleather heart pillow: Yay for more modern versions of an old favorite.
Where do you stand on Valentine’s day and the decor that usually goes with it?
