DIY: Burlap Ring Pillow

Everyone is obsessed with DIY projects now! One of the easiest details to DIY is the classic ring pillow for the wedding bands. Each can be customized to the theme of the wedding itself and they aren't that difficult to create! I was scouring the web for a simple but fun ring pillow DIY design and came up with something better! I saw this DIY tutorial made as a collaboration between Blue Label vendor and etsy vendor Emily Zych of whichgoose . It’s a burlap ring pillow that’s both supremely easy to make AND super cute!


For this project you will need:
-piece of burlap fabric or small burlap bag
-length of jute twine
-large plastic needle (big enough to string the twine)
-needle and thread

1. Cut one large piece of burlap material about 9 x 13″ or a small burlap bag
2. Fold each edge over about 1/2″ and press with a iron (you can also pin into place if an iron is not handy)

3. Fold the entire piece in half long ways.
4. Sew along two of the open sides. Make sure to leave one side open.
5. Stuff your pillow with any sort of polyfill filling and sew remaining side closed.
6. String a piece of jute twine on a large needle.

7. Poke needle through middle of pillow, and back up again about 1″ apart.
8. Tie two ends together in a knot.
9. Finish up with a bow!

You can buy one of Emily’s ring pillows right here.

How cute are they!!!

Happy planning everyone!!!
