As a salute to spring, our latest DIY involves a spring fashion favorite: the dress! The light and sweet dress we used as a base gets an extra kick of personality with an embellished shoulder of buttons. You can also use this technique on your favorite blazer or cardigan!
What You’ll Need:
Shiny Button 4-Holes
Needle and Thread
1. Lay out your dress. Line up 5 buttons (or an many as you want depending on the size of the button) on one shoulder for placement.
2. Once you know the placement of button on the shoulder, you can start to sew each one on. We sewed them on so the buttons are over lapping.
3. Repeat on the opposite shoulder.

Welcome spring with a decor accent that highlights the colors of the season! We’ve made a pillow cover that’s perfectly pastel, and just the thing to brighten up your space after a chilly winter.

What You’ll Need:
Plain canvas pillow case
Rit Dye powder (Fuchsia and Royal Blue)
1. Take three cups and fill with water at different depths. Add in dye so you have light, medium and dark shades of each color you are using.
2. Lay out your pillow and dip your paint brush into the dye. Create strokes going up and down making a cross-hatched pattern.
3. Wash and let dry.
