Relax pillow {15 minute craft}

Happy Monday Friends…Ready for another 15 minute craft?   I know…They’re my favorite too!  It’s almost like instant gratification!

Make-it-Yourself-RELAX-pillow I OneKriegerChick We all need more time to relax, right?  Time to kick back and read a good book or thumb through a magazine…  

I’ve been wanting to do a little makeover on my Outdoor Sofa, but didn’t want to spend as much as I did the first time around.  Also, I might have snagged the pillows and have been using them in my Living Room.

So with the season for relaxing on the patio finally here, I needed to act quick…

To create this quick {think 15 minutes or less} pillow, you need:  a blank pillow cover, piece of paper the width of the pillow, Sharpies in a variety of colors, and easy peel tape (washi or painters).

Let’s get started…We only have 15 minutes!

Relax-Pillow-You-can-make-yourself-in-15-minutes-or-less! 1. Cut a piece of paper slightly smaller than the size of your pillow and write the word you would like to use.  I wrote mine in pencil first then went over it with a black Sharpie.

2. Insert the paper inside the pillow cover and tape to a window.  

3. Trace over the words with a Sharpie.  I chose to use different shades of blue for each letter. Make-it-Yourself-Pillow-with-Sharpies-in-15-minutes-or-less! 4. Add a pillow form, kick back, and Relax!

Quick and easy, right…You can make dozens…

Make-it-yourself-relax-pillow Have another 15 minutes?  That’s all it took for my mini-Sofa Makeover too!

I found this great Medallion fabric in Navy with shades of Aqua at a local discount store and thought it would be perfect for a Poolside Sofa…Can you guess what the fabric is?

A curtain panel!  I simply wrapped it around the cushion.  You can read my reasoning for that {Here}.

And I picked it up for only $12.49…It’s from the Threshold line at Target and was still in the original package.  Bonus…It’s long enough to make two covers!  Not a bad price.  

I had an old body pillow in the basement and slipped a new body pillow cover in a dark blue stripe…also found at the discount store for only $2.99.  From Target and still in the package.

Then topped it all off with my new RELAX pillow…

Relax Pillow and new styling on Outdoor Sofa Hmmm…may have to make another pillow…

    Great project, I love the subtle colour choices. I’m glad I’m not the only person who stands at the window tracing things, my family think I’m nuts, now I can prove to them it is perfectly normal behaviour!
