Get the Look: Trending and Popular Decorative Pillows

DIY Trendy Decorative Pillows

I recently rented an apartment and all I wanted was for it to be super stylish and modern. The only problem was I didn’t have the budget to splurge on both furniture and decor, so I had to find a way to cut back. That was when I began to face my throw pillow dilemma… I wanted some trendy pillows but, not for the price. Then I realized I could DIY old pillows to look just like them! Today, I am going to give you some tips on how to recreate four of my favorite luxury throw pillows. The best part is all you need is our different trims and products and pillows you may already have (or can buy for a low price on Amazon)!

Embroidered Pillows


This beautiful embroidered bird pillow with fringe is so easy to recreate with a plain throw pillow and just a few supplies. All you need to easily recreate this at home is an embroidered bird patch, floral patches, and some tassels for the corners. Iron on the patches and glue/sew the tassels onto the pillow or pillow cover. You are good to go with a new pillow that looks like a million bucks without having to hurt your wallet!

PomPoms are a great way to add flair to any home decor piece, especially throw pillows. The pillow covers on the right retail for about $60, which is too expensive for my taste. To recreate a pompom pillow, use pompom trim and line it along the perimeter. To be even more creative, you can use the trim in a geometric pattern to give design to the front of the pillow.

Fringe Pillows

Adding fringe to a pillow is simpler than you think! Just take a plain pillow and any color fringe trim you like. Then, sew it around the outside and voila! You have a fun pillow to spice up any couch, recliner, or love seat!



Fur pillows give a luxurious look to any piece of furniture you place them on, which is why they are definitely one of the most expensive throws out there. Thankfully, M&J carries fur trims so you can make your own! A fur border on any pillow adds such an elegant aspect to any room. Just sew fur trim to the perimeter of the pillow to add fur to your decor while not overspending.
