I decided to switch out my bright floral summer pillows for cozy, textured neutrals with pops of red for Christmas. I made all of the pillows on the cheap. That way I don't feel guilty switching things up whenever the mood strikes.
Want to make your own Christmas pillows? Here are a few instructions to get you started:
Sweater Pillow: I bought a gray sweater at a thrift store, cut a square from the body of the sweater and sewed it up. I LOVE this pillow. It has so much texture, adds that winter coziness and best of all, I didn't have to knit those detailed cable designs. It took less than an hour to make!
Deer Pillow: I downloaded a deer head silhouette and printed it out. I added double sided iron-on adhesive (like THIS) to the back of the black and white fabric (from Joann). Then I traced the deer onto the paper backing, peeled off the paper and ironed it to the pillow. I crocheted a little scarf for the deer too. Wouldn't want him getting cold. I attached the scarf to the pillow by poking holes in the fabric, stuffing the yarn through, then hand-sewing it down with coordinating thread.
Plaid Pillow: This pillow was the easiest of all. I bought two cloth napkins from Hobby Lobby's Christmas section and sewed them together. They were half off, so each napkin was only $1.50. It doesn't get any easier than that!
I'm loving my cozy Christmas couch. I curl up under that divine fur throw blanket (from Fred Meyer), sip hot cocoa and enjoy the glowing lights of the Christmas tree.
