Have you guys seen the new Hearth & Hand home decor collection by Magnolia at Target? Woah. It is pretty amazing!!! There are so many cute pieces and the prices are pretty reasonable. I especially love this cute, little, embroidered x pattern throw pillow!

If you haven’t checked out the collection yet, you have to see it. I think I need one (or two) of everything. Like this doormat, these striped napkins, this wreath, etc. It is like Joanna Gaines crawled into my brain and stole all of my neutral lovin’ home decor ideas. And then made a home decor line with them. *wink*
Check out how I turned a Hearth & Hand placemat into a cute embroidered x pattern throw pillow.
I’m always on the lookout for a good deal. So, when I found a placemat from the same line that was the exact pattern of the pillow for only a quarter of the price, I scooped up the opportunity to get the look for less.
If you come across a cute fabric placemat that you love, chances are you can make it into a throw pillow. (I’ve done this before and it is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get a stylish pillow for your space.)
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
To start, take a seam ripper and pull out the stitching on one side of the placemat, about 4 inches long. (Or just big enough to slip your hand into.)
Next, stuff the pillow! (I decided to go the cheap route and just pulled apart an old bed pillow to use as stuffing.) Fill that puppy up until it is sufficient to your liking.
Finally, it is time for a little sewing. Using a needle and thread matching the pillow color, hand stitch the opening closed.
Voila! That’s it!
These placemat pillows are so easy to make and you can whip up several of them in no time.
I just love the neutral style of these embroidered x pattern throw pillows. They are the exact look of the Hearth and Hand version for only a fraction of the cost!
Although, I probably didn’t need any more pillows, I’m so happy that I found this little inexpensive hack. My husband may not be quite as thrilled, since he considers me a pillow hoarder, but I’m sure he appreciates the fact that I saved some money in the pillow acquiring process!
