DIY Knot Pillow

Decorating on a budget can feel like an impossible task. Not everyone is thrifty, and when you buy items online they often look completely different upon arrival. We have a DIY project that will have your apartment looking sophisticated and your friends asking “where can I find?” and “how much?”
