Simply head to your closest dollar store and pick up red and blue bandanas. Mine came in packets of two for $1.00.  So for $6.00 I have a whole new look for the party tomorrow.

Simply lay one bandana down flat (right side out), place pillow on top, and lay second bandana on top of pillow (again right side out). Then simply start tying off the corners with ribbon. I used my red and white kitchen twin because that I was I have on hand.

No more green pillows! Fast, easy, and cheap! Next year I might pull out the sewing machine and stitch them into a covering – but for now you can’t beat the ease of this.
