DIY Tuesdays - DIY Burlap Ring Pillow

DIY has become a staple word for brides to be lately.  So many brides are cutting costs and putting their own special touches by opting to DIY.  I love looking through DIY wedding ideas and so I created DIY Tuesdays on our blog to showcase our favorite DIY of the week.  (Seriously, feel like I said DIY like 10 times!)

This week's DIY is a Burlap Ring Pillow!  Burlap was VERY popular in 2012 and I predict it will still be popular in 2013 with so many rustic themed weddings!  I loved this post by Ruffled Blog with step by step instructions to make the process SO easy!  Try it yourself and let me know how it turns out!

For this project you will need:
-piece of burlap fabric or small burlap bag
-length of jute twine
-large plastic needle (big enough to string the twine)
-needle and thread
1. Cut one large piece of burlap material about 9 x 13″ or a small burlap bag
2. Fold each edge over about 1/2″ and press with a iron (you can also pin into place if an iron is not handy)

3. Fold the entire piece in half long ways.
4. Sew along two of the open sides. Make sure to leave one side open.
5. Stuff your pillow with any sort of polyfill filling and sew remaining side closed.
6. String a piece of jute twine on a large needle.

7. Poke needle through middle of pillow, and back up again about 1″ apart.
8. Tie two ends together in a knot.
9. Finish up with a bow!

Better yet, if you’re short on time or even burnt out on DIY projects, you can buy one of Emily’s ring pillows on her shop.
