Looking for a fun way to add character to your bedroom or living room? Why not try a simple DIY project, courtesy of Country Living (and featuring Cuddledown’s Synthetic fill 15″ round pillow and Cotton Twill Pillow Cover)!

Here are the instructions from Country Living:

Center a 12-inch dinner plate facedown on the empty cotton twill pillow cover; using a pencil, trace the shape. Within that circle, repeat with a 9-inch salad plate. Using a ruler and chalk, divide and mark the inner circle into equal quarters. Within each quarter, center a 2½-inch diameter juice glass; using a pencil, trace the shape. Trace over all six pencil-marked circles with a red, chisel-tip fabric marker. Let dry for two minutes, then slide the pillow insert inside the case. Run a long needle threaded with embroidery floss through the center of each of the four small circles twice, to create tufting. Securely knot the floss on the pillow’s back side; clip excess and dust off chalk marks.

How cute is that?! Tell us, how do you revitalize your home decor? We’d love to hear!
