DIY Quote Pillow

Ready for some DIY? We’re making a quote pillow for your home on our lifestyle blog today! Pick a quote, any quote (we’re quite fond of this one), and you can personalize a pillow that we promise will bring you a little joy every time you see it! With just a few necessary supplies, this DIY quote pillow was no fuss and one of our most rewarding creations – we love home DIY projects a lot. And the best part? It only cost us about $15 total!! We’ll probably make it over and over again because you can never have too many pillows!

What You Need:

Linen Pillow Case & Pillow
Letter Stencils
Sharpie or Fabric Marker

Line up the words how you want them to fit on the pillow. Place the letters of each word a 1/4 inch apart. By measuring the length of the word and the width of the pillow case, you can align the word in the center of the pillow case and tape down the stencils.You will want to measure your rows as well across the height of the pillow case so they are evenly spaced and mark with pencil where the stencils should go.
