GUEST ROOM MAKEOVER || No Sew Greek Key Pillow
If you’ve been around here long, you may recall that I have added Greek Key trim to pillows for our living room. And I recently added some trim detail to a pillow in my office. So when I needed a small little lumbar pillow for the guest room, I decided to pull this little party trick out of my hat.
OK, so let’s get one thing straight before we move on. If you are looking for formal and fancy ways to do things- you probably know that this is not the place! I like to find inexpensive and easy ways to do things around here! Alright, so now that we are all on the same page, let’s take a look!
To do these no-sew pillows- I just found an inexpensive pillow cover online. This two pack was only $12 and it was just the right color and size I was looking for. The trim came from Hobby Lobby – and I like to stock up when it’s 40% off so I actually had a couple yards already on hand.
Then I just cut the trim down to size. Once it’s trimmed, if it feels like it might fray, I take a lighter to help seal off any loose threads. Once the piece is ready, I just add glue and line it up with the zipper on the bottom and then have it hang a bit over in the back. You could of course, glue the trim in one big piece on the front and back!
Once the ribbon is glued in place, I usually add some kitchen clips until it’s dried just to ensure that everything stays intact.
