I’m a bit of a rebel. 

Okay, stop laughing. I really am. 



I’m not good at doing what I’m “supposed” to do just because I’m supposed to do it. And if we’ve learned anything from television, its that rebels like metal studs.

Not ready to sport a mohawk and black leather, I came up with a DIY studded pillow instead.

First, I started with a simple piece of burlap cut into a 19″ square. The plan is to make this for an 18″ pillow form. The extra inch on each side allows for seam allowance once I sew it together. 

You could maybe get away with a pre-made pillow cover, but you need something with an open weave. Burlap works perfectly, but I’m sure you could make another fabric work.

Now here’s the secret. For the “studs”, I used cheap, brass plated brads. You know, the kind you used in middle school to hold your science report together (they are sometimes just called “paper fasteners”).

Get the shortest length you can find. I used 1/2″, but they were a little harder to find. You can find them here, 1/2″ Brass Paper Fasteners on Amazon Cheap & Easy Studded Pillow Cover.

To apply the brads, you just push one through the open weave of the fabric,

flip it over, and spread the prongs out flat.

This is the part where you can get your craft on! What design would you like? The options are only limited to your creativity.

Like I mentioned before, you may be able to use a fabric other than burlap, but I haven’t tried yet. I was thinking, if you had a nice heavy fabric that doesn’t fray (like maybe canvas or a knit), you could maybe just poke holes where you want your studs to be and stick the brads through. If you feel brave enough to try, please send me a picture!!!
