I am always looking for easy ways to decorate for the changing seasons. The other day I was at Target and, as always, I checked out the Dollar Spot. If you haven’t shopped the Dollar Spot at Target you are missing out! Most items range in the $1 to $5 range. I notice some really cute Pet Blankets that they had and they were $3 each. The blankets were plaid or winter themed. I picked up a couple thinking I might have a use for them.
At home I have a number of 15″ x 15″ pillows. These pillows are great, but I wanted to spruce them up a bit for the upcoming holidays. Enter the pet blanket. The blankets are 36″ x 36″ and are a perfect fit for the pillows and I just had to make an Easy No Sew DIY Pillow Cover!
It was so easy to turn the pillows into new holiday decor! First, spread the blanket on the floor. Put the pillow on top of the blanket so it is on the diagonal.
Next fold other two opposite edges and tuck the points under.
Finally, tie together the two other pointed ends in a knot. You can tuck in the tails of the knot or leave them free.
Then arrange them on your couch! Don’t they look cute. My dog, Pepper is showing them off. You can either have the knot ends showing or turn them around for a smooth finish. The whole project took me less than five minutes! You can also use any piece of material that you want to make these easy pillows.
While you are at the Target Dollar Spot, check out their cute sweaters, coats and hats for your furry friend as well. I picked up a cute pink set for my daughter’s dog Penny. Isn’t she cute! Target Dollar Spot is one of my favorite places to shop. Check it out frequently for some great deals.
