DIY Gold Polka Dot Pillow

Anthropologie inspired pillow gold dot

Well hello there!!  Just popping in to share a little DIY we whipped up.  Between unpacking STILL…expanding the store…playing chauffeur to kiddos in school, there is not enough hours in the day but I had a few minute to make this fun and fab pillow.  It reminds me of the one  I have been eyeing up at Anthropologie, so to humor my budget, I made one very similar.

I used this metallic gold Martha Stewart craft paint I picked up at Michael’s along with a polka dot stencil and some sponge pouncers.  I had some fabric scraps left over from a previous project so it was great to put some scraps to use!


The pillow insert I was using was 18×18 so I cut a 19″ square for the front.  I placed the stencil and used some blue painters tape to hold it in place while I painted.  I waited a few minutes in between the next round of dots so I wasn’t smearing paint all over the fabric.
