Bold, graphic designs are hot right now, but even when they’re not we still love them.  Celebrate bold patterns with this mod pillow featuring stylized peacock feathers by Amy of Positively Splendid, which she shared as a guest post at Tatertots & Jello.  The motif is created using a clever combination of freezer paper stencils, spray paint, and appliques.  She even supplied free printable .pdf files of the shapes used in the pillow, making it easy to make your own.  If you enjoy this peacock feather motif, you can also use the same technique to add it to draperies, table runners, clothing, and more!  [how to make a mod peacock pillow]
