Flower Pillows - DIY

Updated on December 09, 2016

Make Floral Style Pillows, Decorative Pillows, Accent Pillows

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." I'm thinking he must have said that before he ever saw flower pillows....

This striking red petal pillow was sewn by Allison of Cluck. Cluck. Sew. It was the first pillow to inspire me enough to make a flower pillow of my very own. I was surprised at how simple the DIY technique was and how pretty and soft my flower pillow was upon completion. The process to make a floral pillow looks a little intricate, but it's not.

You'll discover so many styles of pillows with flowers (or petal pillows) online. Here are several DIY versions of flower pillows with links provided to the tutorials. My hope is you'll find at least one of these lovely pillows to make for your very own too. :)

for weddings or just because....

Silk dupion, shantung, and taffeta make up this breathtaking flower pillow created (of course) by those clever people at Martha Stewart. Flower pillows as beautiful as this one are perfectly suited for bearing rings, but I'm sure I could find a use for one in my home. Just perhaps a tad bigger, maybe?
