Easy, Cheap, Homemade Gift/Product Idea for Your Entrepreneurs (Canvas Pillows)

by Kelly Crawford

Easy, Cheap Homemade Gifts

When my daughter got married, we used two large, canvas curtains for decoration. The cheapest solution was a painter’s drop cloth. (Harbor Freight (on line) was the cheapest place I found them, and right now, they’re on sale for $16.49 for a 9 x 12 piece.) Also, I googled for a coupon code and found this one for 20% off, bringing the total to $13.19! And that’s how you get great deals, people.

But afterward, we had these huge, wonderful pieces of canvas fabric which needed a new purpose. So, with a little Pinterest inspiration, cheap pillows bought at Goodwill, a few stencils and a sharpie marker, voila!

(My part? “Hey girls, look at these pillows on Pinterest.” That’s all. They are the crafty ones.) Here’s the tutorial my girls used if you want to create some of these beauties for Christmas.




The back has a hemmed, fold-over closure for easy removal of pillow.




These make great gifts, and we’ve already sold 4 or 5.
