diy-tufted-ring-moss-pillow

This week’s DIY wedding project is an elegant ring pillow created by the wonderful Laurie Cinotto of lalalaurie. Laurie has such a great eye for colors and I love the bronze/green color palette she picked for this rustic chic pillow. How adorable would this look coming down the aisle in your ring bearer’s hand? Enjoy!

What You’ll Need:
A 5″ x 5″ X 2″ piece of Styrofoam
2 feet ribbon (2″ wide)
3 yards of ribbon (1/4″ wide)
A 6″ x 6″ scrap of fabric
A handful of sphagnum moss
Straight pins
Round-headed corsage pins
A pair of scissors

Instructions

1.  Center  your fabric face up on the Styrofoam square   Fold the fabric
edges  over sides of the Styrofoam and secure with straight pins.    Wrap
the corners neatly and pin.  (see figure 1)

2.  Turn your Styrofoam over so the fabric side is down. Take your
sphagnum moss and stretch it out across the top of the Styrofoam.  Be sure
that the moss completely covers the surface.  (see figure 2)

3.  Cut a length of the skinnier ribbon and run it diagonally across the
mossed surface.  Attach both ends of the ribbons on the sides of the
Styrofoam using straight pins.    Repeat this process to create a diagonal
grid of ribbon on the top of the pillow.

4.  Take your corsage pins and stick them into the points where the
ribbons intersect on the pillow top.  (see figure 4)

5.  Turn the pillow on it’s side and pin the end of the wider ribbon in
the center of the side, using your straight pins.  (see figure 5)

6.  Wrap the ribbon around all four sides, concealing the fabric edges and
skinny ribbon tails.   Pull it tightly as you go and keep the ribbon edges
lined up with the edges of the pillow.  (see figure 5)

7.  When you pass your starting point, fold under the ribbon tail and pin
it down using your corsage pins.  (see figure 6)

8.  Trim off any loose moss bits.

9.  Cut a 12″ length of the skinnier ribbon and tie it to the corsage pin
in the center of the pillow.  Attach your rings by tying a bow. (see
figure 7)

What it costs:
Styrofoam square  $.90
Ribbon  $3.00
Corsage Pins $2
Small bag of moss $1.80
Total = $7.70
