A quick holiday pillow makeover.........
I’m always looking for a good way to cover up a stain on a pillow.  I finally found one.  OK, I’m only half kidding!  I just like gluing fabrics together because the bond is just amazing! Hot glue is an amazing fabric bond and did you know that E-6000 is washable? Either glue will work wonders on this project.  
Any lace will do for a project like this and if you’re really adventurous, try doing it all over an old ottoman that needs some sprucing up.  I think you might really like the results.

E-6000 or hot glue gun and glue sticks
1 yard lace that you can cut apart
Scissors *Fiskars is my brand of choice
Fray Check
Straight pins

1.        Cut your lace apart to separate the flowers and leaves.
2.        If there is a rough edge or an edge that you think my fray, use Fray Check on it.
3.        Carefully remove the stuffing from your pillow (or if you’re making a pillow, do this before you start stuffing it)
4.        Lay your pillow flat and start arranging how you want your lace flowers.
5.        Pin your lace pieces in place
6.        Start gluing them with the hot glue until you’re satisfied.
7.        Stuff your pillow and sew the hole closed and you’re done!
