Gold Heart Pillow

With Christmas likely packed up for everyone now it's time to bring out red, pink and hearts. I decided to do a quick addition to an IKEA pillow to make a Valentine pillow that can stay out year round. (some links are affiliate)

You just need to pick up a black and white stripe pillow cover from IKEA and a sheet of gold foil heat transfer vinyl. Be sure to grab the pillow form from IKEA too.

Use a Cricut to cut out a heart that's about 8x9 inches. Make sure that you load the vinyl with the shiny side down to cut it.

Peel off the excess and position the vinyl on the center of the pillow cover. Iron down to adhere and peel off the plastic after it's cooled. 

(If you want to make a scalloped striped pillow, check out this cute one from Happiness is Homemade!)

Then add the pillow insert and you're done! Would you love to have this on your bed or on a couch?
