I love the look of striped grain sack pillows but I’m not a fan of the price tag (reference below), not to mention most of them are just sold as covers so the pillow itself would be an additional cost.
This weekend I managed to make my own using a plain pillow I already had lying around plus some Scotch tape and a bit of red paint from a previous project. It was so easy that there isn’t even a tutorial worth showing; all I did was use the tape to create lines to the thickness I wanted and painted in between the tape. If you don’t have a cream or white pillow lying around like I did, IKEA sells covers for as little as $3 and cushions starting at $4.
This is definitely an easy and affordable DIY and will only take about 20 minutes of your time. If you’re not necessarily a big fan of the stripe look, using stencils to trace a word or an ampersand symbol would also be a fun option! Is this a DIY project you’d consider tackling?
