last week i bought another new magazine. i know, i have problems, but that’s not the point. so, this is the magazine a i got.
christmas ideas from better homes and gardens. first, i have to tell you, if you only buy one ‘christmas magazine’ (other than FOLK, of course) then you NEED to buy this issue.
i can’t tell you how many wonderful, new, inspired and ah-mazing ideas are packed into this magazine. seriously amazing. i restrained myself from taking pictures of every page, but i did want to share two things.
first, love this use of three cloches.
consider this another idea to my list of new uses for cloches.
second, this issue features the uber talented layla and kevin from the lettered cottage. i’ve always loved their house and projects. their spread in this issue is just brilliant. i’m in love with their holiday decor.
i mean, come on! right!?
so back to my point, when i saw the cover of the magazine, i noticed these festive appliquéd pillows and feel in love. i knew i had to make them, but i wanted to give them my own little twist.
instead of using white fabric i wanted something a bit more colorful. the pillows will be used on some accent chairs in my dining room so i wanted them to match all the festiveness of my dining room christmas decor.
i decided i’d use material from vintage sheets. i visited one of my favorite etsy shops and found exactly what i wanted.
pretty amazing, right? the shop owner, jeni from in color order, is not only the sweetest, but she is incredibly talented. the projects she creates on her blog blow my mind. she also has the cutest bunny, george. if you haven’t been to her blog yet, stop on over and say, ‘hi’!
i’m hoping to have these finished up before christmas and will definitely be sharing the results. so stay tuned!
do you have any fun diy project planned for the holidays?
