DIY Scarf to No Sew Pillow Cover

It's been a really long year, and I can't believe that it's almost June, and we're almost half way through. This year has been stressful, intense, heavy and just plain hard with Jacob being sick for most of it.  I am so glad that he is finally starting to feel better and it feels like the weight of the world has been lifted off of my shoulders.  It is so hard to focus on anything else when your child is sick.  Of course, I am still so behind on just EVERYTHING.  I'm really looking forward to just relaxing, enjoying life and spending some time on more frivolous things, like throw pillows, which is what this post is really all about!

I was inspired by the pink roses in our back yard and thought that pink would look good with the new blue and white John Robshaw pillows that I splurged on awhile back on Etsy.  Plus, you know how I love to change the pillows on my couches every five minutes.

So, let me show you how easy it was to turn a favorite scarf into a no sew pillow cover.

I spread my scarf out on the floor and centered the pillow on it.
I folded over the short sides.

I picked up the long ends and...
tied it into a knot.
 I spread open the ends so that I could tuck them under the fabric on the sides.
I wasn't sure how it would hold together, but we've been using it like a regular pillow and it hasn't come apart.  I think your home should make you happy, and the cheerful color combo of pink, gray, blue and white really lifts my spirits.  
Have you done any easy DIY projects lately?  I'd love to hear what you've been up to.

Thanks for dropping by today!
