Today I'm going to share with you a simple and easy Summer Farmhouse Bee Patio Pillow Décor using humble Dollar Tree items. Its appropriate to decorate your home for Summer in Farmhouse style! icon

This is the cute Bee Patio Pillow we are going to make! icon

First, I started with one of the cute Bee Print cotton Tote bag from Dollar Tree.

Then, I picked up Patio outdoor paints(Yellow, Green and Red) from Home Depot for $1 each.

Plan is to use Yellow paint for the Bee, Red paint for flowers and Green paint for greenery.

Next, I placed a cardboard piece in the Tote bag so the paint doesn't stick to the back of the bag. And I started filling up the paint in the Bee.

Later, I filled up Red and Yellow paint to the flowers and Green paint to the leaves of the tote bag.

This is how it looks after I filled up all the colors of the bag.

While the paint is drying up, I got black yarn from Dollar Tree and I started rolling 25-30 times around my fingers and knotted it with another piece of yarn.

Then, I trimmed the ends to give a even look as shown.

And knotted around to create a tassel.

Then, I added pillow into the tote bag, which I already had and hot glued the top opening of the tote bag. But another option would be to fill the poly fill from any supermarket like Walmart etc.

Lastly, I hot glued the tassels to 4 corners of the pillow to finish the look.

The bright colored florals and greenery has added Décor to this Cute Summer Farmhouse Patio Pillow Décor and looks like store bought!

This is in honor of Bees and Bees are very important for the environment.

    Can you paint the bag with regular acrylic or enamel paint?

    I love this too. Hoping my dollar store has this bag and others like it, love the bee theme and its reminder of how important bees are but maybe some other patterns would be fun too. Judy, I don't know if painting the whole bag would work, I am not familiar with this outdoor paint but wonder if it would be stiff on a bigger surface? You could dye the bag with tea or any number of other natural foods and/or flowers/plants that make wonderful colors. Do a search on this site or a general search for natural dyes. Remember some fabrics take dye better than others and some don't want to take dye at all, look for that info during your search after you know what your bag is made of. Good luck and post your finished project if you do this, we'd love to see it!
