DIY No-Sew Greek Key Ribbon Pillows

DIY no-sew Greek Key ribbon pillows made with glue! Such an easy & affordable way to add character to your decor!
For the past month, I've been working on refreshing our master bedroom. I still have a few more projects I have to finish before I can show you all of the changes. In the meantime, I thought I would give you a little sneak peek and show you the Greek Key ribbon pillow I made for the bed. 






I love the way it turned out, and it was so easy to do.

This was truly one of the easiest projects. It took less than thirty minutes total. Do you remember my no-sew glue pillows I made back in April? I made this one the same way, using my beloved pillow glue, Unique Stitch (amazon affiliate link). Other than that, all I needed was some navy blue canvas fabric, some ivory ribbon, scissors, and hot glue.

After I made my envelope pillow case, I cut four strips of ribbon to be used for the greek key detail. I began by laying the first two strips where I wanted them and attaching them to the pillowcase with hotglue just at the folded corners.

Next, I glued the third strip on, again only glueing the corners down. (Don't mind the photobomb of leftover gemstone magnets. The craft room is in full craft-explosion mode right now as I work to complete this bedroom.)

Last, I attached the fourth strip at the corners. Once all the corners were in place I made sure everything was lined up perfectly, and then hotglued everything else down. I wrapped the ends of the ribbons around the back of the pillow, folding them over at the tips to create a nice seam.

And that's all it took!
That's how I made my little Greek Key pillow for less than $10 total! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to pin this post so you can find it when you need it!

  8. Cute pillow. I am a no sew kind of girl too! I read your about page - enjoyed it. I love laughter too. Being last to have kids isn't a bad thing. I am an older mom and love it.
