Happy Labor Day! We're off today, but we still have a couple special posts coming your way. With Fall on our doorsteps, thoughts of hot chocolate, bonfires and crisp leaves under our feet start to creep in. No matter how hard we try to hang onto beach balls and fireflies, it's just no use, so we've given in to the need to snuggle down. Handmade pillows are a great way to bring a little pop and personality to a space while still staying practical. Here are a few of our favorites, and some DIY options, too.
These eco-friendly pillows are sure to see some serious snoozes on your sofa this Fall season. The best part about pillows is that if you're crafty in the slightest, watch the sales for green materials to go on sale in your area and craft away! You can design anything from a basic shape to something more intricate. Cruise non-green sources for some serious diy inspiration. Now on with the show!
