If you’re anything like me, gardening is not your forte. But that doesn’t stop you from enjoying florals and adding botanical elements to your home. I was thrilled when Sarah Louise, maker and artist based in the UK, shared her idea for creating giant paper roses using our Smooth wallpaper. These DIY roses are the perfect way to bring flowers into your life without the challenge of keeping them alive. Keep reading for the full how-to for creating some for yourself!
Earlier this year, we were feeling the love when we shared our Personalized Wedding Pillows for Under $10 DIY project on the blog. We received lots of excitement for this project and a handful of requests for a pillow template. The wedding bells must be ringing because today we’re excited to share four different pillow templates, ready for your customized details!
Like many creatives, I often find myself daydreaming about my next big sewing project even before my current project is complete. Whether in the car, walking my dog or even brushing my teeth, custom fabric projects are always on the brain. While on a trail run, I dreamt up my race bib running top. Most recently, while getting the mail, the lightbulb went off for custom pillows inspired by vintage envelopes.
These pillows look great on Linen Cotton Canvas, Eco Canvas and Heavy Cotton Twill, but I was excited to try Spoonflower’s newest fabric, Lightweight Cotton Twill. This lightweight fabric is both soft and durable, is easy to work with, and is a perfect addition to your couch when made into a pillow.
Looking for ways to make your wedding celebration reflect you and your partner's personalities? Think bunting, banners, napkins, and table runners. Spoonflower team member Jenny here to offer up a few ideas for using custom fabric to make your DIY wedding feel more authentic and unique to you. With a bit of resourcefulness and the chance to show off your creativity and crafting skills, you're just a few fun and easy projects away from curating the wedding vibe of your dreams.
