Over the past couple of weeks I have to admit that I’ve been a tad bit distracted by a little bedroom makeover that I’m finally almost done with (can’t wait to share the results with you soon). So I wanted to reward you for your patience with a nifty little decor project that you can bust out in 5 minutes or less. Serious! Enter this lightning fast No-sew Decorative Pillow Cover…using a scarf!

All you will need is a large light-weight scarf (I like to pick up affordable scarves at places like Forever21 and Target), and a throw pillow insert. UPDATE: the pillow used here is 16″x16″ and the scarf is 76″x40.”

Here’s how to make your pillow cover. First, open and lay your scarf down on a flat surface. Place your pillow insert onto the center of your scarf. Fold the bottom half of your scarf up over the top of your pillow form.

Then fold the top half down. Grab the two long ends and knot them in the center of the pillow.

Knot once more for a fuller look. Feel free to tweak the fabric until it looks good to you. Tuck loose scarf ends under the open scarf flaps on either side and distribute the bulk evenly.
