DIY His & Hers accent pillows

Here is yet another easy and quick DIY project that could work as the perfect holiday gift for a couple or even a cute accent pillow for a little boy or girls nursery/room.

Here is what you’ll need:

SUPPLIES:
-Gurli White Pillow Cover{Only $3!}
-Sharpie Oil Based Paint Markers
-Cutting Board
-Painters tape
-Pencil

STEP 1: Insert your cutting board or a piece of cardboard into the pillow. This way your paint marker won’t bleed through to the back of the pillow. Then take painters tape and frame a section of the pillow where you would like your writing to be.

STEP 2: Use a pencil to lightly write down your saying. Since I was going with His and Hers pillows I went with Good Morning Gorgeous for the ladies and Hello There Handsome for the fellas.

STEP 3: Shake up your oil based pen and trace over your pencil. The oil-based pens work really well on this fabric, because it comes on strong and it’s water and fade resistant. I wanted my hand writing to look a bit fancier so I followed this tutorial on how to fake calligraphy from Jones Design Company.

I had to test them out in my own home so that you could take a peek at them all stuffed:

So easy, inexpensive and I love how personalized it is with not only whatever saying you want, but in your own handwriting!

  1. So cute! What a great gift idea too!

  2. Hi Camila,
    What size Sharpie oil-based paint pen did you use for this project – a medium tip or the large chisel-point tip? Did you go through more than one marker for each pillow?

    Thanks for the inspiration! I love the pillow and hope to make my own after grabbing a pillow cover at IKEA tomorrow.
