DIY Beachy Pillows

My in laws recently bought a beach house and have been working hard to get it completely furnished and decorated!

To keep the costs low, my mother in law and I decided to make some decorative pillows without much investment. We did purchase one yard of fabric from the sale section of Other than that, we used dropcloth and paints that I already had on hand. We also used old decorative pillows from my in laws home as the inserts!

Using the items we already had made this a cheap project!

We used lots of freezer paper to create stencils of anchors and shells...then ironed the stencils onto the drop cloth.

Once the paint dried, we peeled off the stencils and we sewed the pillows! For a full tutorial on using freezer paper stencils, click HERE!
