DIY Scarf Throw Pillow Cover

Have some throw pillows lying around that could use a makeover? Here’s a great DIY trick to quickly (and cheaply) give them an update!

All you have to do is rummage through your closet to find some scarves (preferably square scarves) that you don’t use anymore OR make a trip to your local thrift shop and pick some up for pocket change.

Once you’ve selected your pillows and fabrics, follow the ultra simple steps below and – voila! Your throw pillows look trendy and new on the cheap!
