When life gives you lemons freshen up your space and create a summer DIY Squeeze the Day Lemon Pillow. After what seems like the longest winter and spring I am sure we are all ready for a fresh start and some cheerful happy decorations.
I am bringing the sunshine indoors with a sunny yellow lemon farmhouse mantel. I recently teamed up with Oriental Trading to give my mantel a vibrant makeover. After being stuck indoors for weeks it was time to freshen things up.
I decided to create something that reminds me there are sunny days ahead. The result was this cheerful mantel with a fun lemon garland, a new DIY Home Sign and pops of aqua and navy.
It seemed only fitting that I create some new pillows to match my new living room decor. I used my Cricut Maker to create a few DIY Squeeze the Day Lemon Pillows to toss on my couch.

How to Make DIY Lemon Pillow
Open the Squeeze the Day Lemon SVG in Cricut Design Space.
Cut out the pieces for the pillow on the coordinating colors of vinyl.
Use the Weeding toolset to remove the vinyl from your design.
Place the vinyl on the pillow cover and make sure you have it where you want it.
Use the EasyPress 2 to iron your canvas pillow cover. Once the vinyl has cooled to the touch remove the transfer sheet to reveal your design.
Stuff the pillowcase with a pillow insert or cotton Poly-fil.
Add your new pillow to your fresh new summer decor.
I love this bright and punny little reminder to count our blessings and make the most of every situation, including being locked down in quarantine!
