Decorating Pillows and Throws

Choose your design

Decide on the design you wish to use. You could opt for a transferrable pattern or you could draw your design, free-hand.

Choose your embellishments

Select any items you think will add to the overall effect: sequins, beads, embroidery, lace, tassels, appliques, ribbons, transfers, or paint.

Apply your chosen embellishment

Select the best way to apply your embellishments. Beads and sequins are best sewed on, while lace and ribbons will adhere with fabric glue.

Take comfort into account

Avoid embellishments in the center of your throw. Stick to the corners and outer border to preserve its comfort.

Effective display

Place your pillows on a sofa, perpendicular to the floor. Using your hand, dent the center of the top edge.
