DIY Photo Pillows


These are one of my favorite things to make right now: photo pillows!  Make them larger as throw pillows or small for sachets and paperweights:


You can fill them with almost anything: stuffing, beans, rice. Also:

:: Add a few drops of scented oil and drop them in a drawer.

:: Make one as a teacher’s gift for use as a paperweight.

:: Make for a child of a deployed parent or vice versa to snuggle next to.

:: Scatter across a coffee table as a fun way to display favorite photos.

They are fairly simple to make. I make them about 10 at a time.  My 5 year old took this photo for me….she’s learning to use my camera:
