DIY: Burlap Ring Pillow

Another project done. It feels like I still have so much more to do with lesser and lesser time. I thought I had 1 whole year to finish everything--turns out all the little details that would need most of my time would pile up towards the last quarter.

But at least I was able to finish another one of those little details in less than 2 hours. I woke up 6:30 am on a Saturday just to squeeze this one with my sched that's becoming more and more hectic.

Anyway, onto the project:

the infamous rustic-themed burlap wedding ring pillow
We're going to have 2 ring bearers so I made 2 pillows. I'm having second thoughts about the combination of the flower and the ribbon but I guess I'll just let it grow on me.

I used the same jute sack cloth that I used for the boutonnieres, used the extra flowers from the bouquet, bought some ribbons, jute string and pillows and this is what I came up with.

Project cost = Php 350

Project breakdown:
2 pillows from Daiso = Php 176
2 yards of ribbon = Php 8
Jute string from American Bazaar = Php 66
Jute sack cloth from Divisoria = Php100 / yard

It's kind of pricier compared to regular wedding pillows that can be bought from Divi, but I say it's pretty cheap considering custom ring pillows go from Php 450 + a piece.

So there. Pillows = CHECK. Next up, more stuff.

Off to brunch with the fiance now then meet the bridesmaids after for their fitting.

This is going to be one heck of a day.
