DIY: America Flag pillows { July 4th decorations}

With July 4th approaching I figured to do some kind of American DIY. I came up with these easy DIY throw pillows which also make great last minute decorations for celebrating the independence day.

As I’m not an American citizen, I’m not very likely to be celebrating July 4th but since I have a lot of American readers I wanted to do a nice little USA inspired DIY anyways.

Have fun and if you do celebrate it: have a nice 4th of July!

You’ll need

plain throw pillows

star patterned fabric

wool thread

star shaped stencil (I made mine by printing one out and transferring it onto a piece of cardboard)

needle, pins, scissors


I went with red pillows, a blue and white star fabric and a white wool thread to match the American flag, but obviously you can make up your one design to match your likings.



Step 1

First start prepping your pillows by cutting a star shape out of your fabric by following your stencil. Then pin this star shaped fabric piece onto the middle of your pillow.


Step 2

Sew your star onto the pillow with some wide stitches. After you went around the whole star, tie a knot and remove all of the pins.


… and that’s it!
