Fun Faux Fur for Cozier Homes

Faux fur accessories can add a warm, cozy pop of fun and color to your home.  From pillows and throws, to rugs and stools, faux fur is all the rage.  DIY projects range from quick and easy, such as combining two or more smaller rugs to create a larger one, to the more complex, like building your own ottoman.

If your local fabric, craft or discount store does not have what you are looking for, there are online options like and that give you the option of delivery or in-store pick up.  Prices range from $8.39/yd for fun animal prints to $24.99/yd for that classic 1970s retro white shag look.

To update an old ottoman or give new life to a great find at a consignment or thrift store, use quick straight seams using faux fur material, or even five small faux fur rugs, to sew a fabulous cover.  If you are feeling a little more ambitious, try building your own ottoman with this handy guide.
