Valentine Pillow Tutorial

 I have shown you part of my Valentines Day Porch. And, as promised... Here's the rest! I had to give my bench a little love as well. I kept the same red chevron pillows out that I made for Christmas, and they work great! This arrow pillow was SO easy, it took 5 minutes, and it was basically free, because I made the pillow sham out of an old paint drop cloth... Yes, there is dried paint on the inside. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, right? My tutorial for a super easy pillow sham can be found HERE.
 

You will need:

Pillow Sham
Galaxy  marker
Painter's or Masking tape
Ruler or Paint Stirrer


Let's get started!

Place two strips of tape across your sham, where you want your arrows to be. Mine strips were about 4 inches apart.


Use your paint stirrer as a ruler to draw and space your lines, and set it perpendicular to the tape. I used the side of the sham to get my first line straight.


Draw all the lines you need.


Then, pull the tape off!


Take your marker, and freehand the arrow tips and feathers. I alternated the tips and feathers for variety.


You are finished!


Put a pillow form in it, and place it where ever you want!


Now, wasn't that easy?

Be sure and come back for more of my arrow addiction. Maybe I need to join AAA (Arrow Addicts Anonymous).

Have a Happy and Creative Day!
