Julie Ryan, blogger from Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss, shows us two easy and affordable projects in this Pinspiration.

Placemat turned Pillow Case:

You'll need a placemat that is double sided. Use sharp scissors or a seam ripper to open up the bottom seam enough to get your insert in. Use an old pillow or purchase a new insert, about 12' by 16' inches to fit the placemat.

Once you stuff in the insert, use hot glue gun or sew the opening and you have a brand new look for your pillows!

Another idea from Julie, Statement arrangements on a budget:

Fill your vase with clippings from a bush in your yard to make it appear bold and fill with either faux blooms to add some extra bulk to the arrangement.
