Where to Buy Throw Pillows for Under $20

April 16, 2021

Where to find the best throw pillow covers for under $20!

I'm back to share my favorite resources for cute and affordable pillow covers. I love sharing where I find home decor at a great price. 

Pillow covers are one of those things I change out more often than any other decor item. If you get them for a good price, they're an easy way to change up the accent colors in a room. 

I also like to use different textures and colors for the seasons. 

Lately I've found some sources for budget-friendly throw pillow covers (and inserts) that I love -- the prices are so good! 

ALL of the covers I'm sharing today are under $20, and most are well under that. When you purchase just the covers (and reuse your inserts) you'll save a lot. (I'll share my favorite fluffy inserts later in the post.)

And all have a zipper closure so you can take them off to wash them and/or change them out! This is especially helpful if you have kids or pets. :) 

1. Hobby Lobby 

I showed you some of my Hobby Lobby pillow finds when I revealed the giant built in unit in our basement living room

I had never paid much attention to the decorative pillow covers at Hobby Lobby until a few months ago. I happened to check them out while they were half off (as they are this week), and I couldn't believe the prices! 

I'll link to these at the end of this post, but they have a HUGE selection of covers in tons of different styles. 

The most expensive one I got was only $9 and the other two were around $7 each (on sale):

I was surprised that their selection included such a wide range of styles -- from super traditional to farmhouse to boho/modern design. It's hard to beat those prices!

Keep in mind the Hobby Lobby covers only come in the 18x18 size.

2. Amazon

I've also found a great selection of pillow covers online. I still LOVE these faux leather covers I got a few months ago:

I liked them so much I ordered more for our basement. 

I found more pillows that play nicely with that look for the basement sofa. I ordered a few -- this striped version, this color block version and this pillow cover with the faux leather and stripes

I loved all of them, especially that color blocked one! But this one looked the best with what I already had on the sofa. 

They mix and match so well together!:

Amazon has a ton of throw pillow cover options under $20. These linen-looking covers come in a bunch of colors and are great quality:

I ordered a pair (only $16 for two!) for another room and the color I got wasn't quite right -- but I really liked them. 

This modern boho version comes in this lumbar pillow cover or in a square shape:

Both of those option are under $16.

These pom pom covers have a unique accent and are made of a velvety fabric. They come in a TON of colors:

That one also comes with tassels instead of the pom pom fringe. Only $17 for two pillows!

I loved the tassels on this black and white striped cover as well:

Any of these would look great on a sofa, chair or as accents on a bed.

3. Etsy 

Another GREAT place to shop for inexpensive pillow covers is Etsy. You can find any style, color or price range. I like supporting small businesses

These shops make all of their pillow covers from vintage Turkish kilim rugs:

I bought the blue and cream one and can't wait to get it! I was shocked by the prices -- I'd expect to pay WAY more for these. 

They have amazing reviews and a TON of one-of-a-kind pillow covers. (I link to these and a bunch of other options below.)

Of course there are plenty of affordable covers in more traditional designs as well. I'd use any of these in our home:

I LOVE this simple floral design -- perfect for a neutral space:

This thin stripe in dark gray is a classic!:

4. H&M Home

H&M is great for the basics. The tried and true, classic fabrics that will never go out of style. 
I've used their pillow covers for years -- this basic linen cover will always work, no matter what the space:

Those come in 12 different colors so you'll find one that works with any color scheme! And only $13 each, you can beat it. 

Their $10 (!!) velvet pillow covers come in ten colors and are great quality:

I purchased a dark green in this one that I use at Christmas every year -- they still look great! 

This set of three neutral pillows for $25 is a great price and do all of the work for you:

There you go! Four of my favorite spots for pillow covers at reasonable prices. You'll save money overall if you use these and change them out, instead of buying (usually more expensive) pillows that don't have zippers or buttons. 

I also prefer these because if you like to change out throw pillows every few months like me, it cuts down on the storage space significantly. I just wash, then fold up the covers and reuse the removable inserts in the new cases. 

I also like softer inserts than the traditional pillow stuffing. My favorite inexpensive feather-filled pillow inserts are at IKEA -- but they don't come in the 18x18 size. I've been using these lightweight down alternative pillow inserts because you can get them in SO many sizes. The prices are hard to beat! 

When you order your inserts, order one size larger than your pillow cover for a fuller look!

  1. Hey, I love your blog! I was wondering if you have a trick to keep feathers from constantly coming out?! I feel like I have to groom my throw pillows quite often, in order to keep from getting poked by sharp feather ends.

    1. Yes we've had that happen too! I've thought about doubling up the covers -- maybe a seasonal one you don't use most of the year and then cover it with the one you want to use.

  2. I've been using your placemat pillow hack for years and LOVE it! I'm always so excited to find new placemats in fun, trendy colors--they make great accents. Can't wait to check out your links from this post. Thanks again for all you share!
