I saw these on Etsy and fell head over heels in love!! I just about died when I saw the price of these were around the $40 mark (not including shipping). I decided to make this a DIY project.
I ordered a large (5 – 6 inch) Nautilus shell off Ebay (cost $16 CDN) + $10 shipping to Canada. For you US people, it might be a lot cheaper!!
After that, I stopped at my local Fabricland and bought half a meter of satin fabric. This was WAAAAAY more than enough. I think I only really needed a foot MAXIMUM. But half a meter cost me $2CDN, so it wasn’t bad.
I purchased stuffing for $0.50CDN (again, didn’t use all of it) and ribbon on sale for under $1.00.
Sew an oval pillow and stuff it. Stitch your ribbon on the pillow. Hot glue gun. DONE!
So for less than $30 for Canadian ladies, I was able to DIY my own ring bearer pillow. For you ladies in the states, I can probably guess it would cost you closer to $20!! <3
I apologize for the lighting in my house. The shell is pearly white, satin pillow is white and the ribbon is champange.
