Cute DIY Polka Dot Pillows

Hello Loves, did you see how I decorated our BACK PATIO last week for Mothers Day DAY?
Well, I got lots of comments and questions about those cute grey and white polka-dot pillows.

Soooo, let me show you how I made these cuties.

 Well I didn't actually make the pillow cases...sorry I am a cheater. 
I got those from IKEA,there are called GURLI and are only 
$4 each. I don't think you can make them for much less than that.
I love the grey color  but wanted something more fun and playful, so I painted 
white polka dots on them with fabric paint using a little foam dipper.
Sooo easy, I have a thing for polka dots lately....

How do you like them? I love to hear from you!
Until next time....
