Today, I am sharing a diy housewarming gift idea that I had not intended on doing.
You see, I bought a gift on line. When it arrived the day of the housewarming party I was terribly disappointed in the actual size of it. It wasn’t cheap either, but I have to admit it was my own fault for not looking at the actual dimensions. I was scouring the net for something industrial in style considering that is the couples personal style and when I ran across this lantern, I thought to myself this is it, it’s perfect.
The lantern alone just didn’t seem like enough for this special couple and to celebrate their new home.
Thankfully I had craft supplies on hand and came up with the perfect little extra something something.
A few moths back I bought around 5 of these decorative pillow covers from Hobby lobby on line
I made one over back a few months ago that I shared on eBay
I actually painted half the pillow with chalky paint because I had goofed up something and had to fix it. I always manage to goof and fix pretty quickly. It’s called craft recovery:)
I had this home stencil for a few years ago. I had done some fall kitchen burlap art with it and I don’t believe I have used it again since. How appropriate though for a new home saying…and on a pillow.
I added a few cute burlap flower embellishments and fortunately even had a pillow insert.
Thrilled with the end result and I hope they enjoy it.
