It can get expensive to decorate for every holiday, but let’s face it- that’s half the fun of holidays- decorating the home to get in the spirit. I mean just imagine Christmas without a tree or stalkings or Thanksgiving without a turkey here and there? You feeling me or is that just the design blogger coming out in me? Don’t worry peeps- I am not that person that goes crazy for each holiday, too much work! But I do enjoy some festive color here and there and I imagine one day when we have kids it will be a highlight to decorate with them and see their excitement. But with all that said, who is ready for Fourth of July? I am SO ready. I have the house projects list scrolling in my head and am excited to have some time with the hubby. But before all that comes to play, let’s get festive with an inexpensive way to “zest” up your basic couch cushions. You could do this for any holiday or even just everyday living, so many possibilities!

  • Scarfs (I got my festive ones from the dollar store)
  • Pillows
First I took a basic navy blue rectangular pillow and added some flair with red white and blue color.
I simply wrapped the pillow with the scarf and tied it into a knot.
This next pillow I wanted to disguise a bit more so I covered the entire front with the scarf..
First I pulled both sides up....
Then did a cross over twist…
My scarf was just a little shy to tie in the back so you can secure with safety pins…
I like how easy this DIY is and the simple home decor!
This pillow is perfect for 4th of July or even Labor and Memorial Day!
Happy wrapping!
