11 - poinsettia pillows

There was a brief hiatus from Christmas crafting over the weekend as I was busy Christmas partying.... but now I'm back with day 11 - simple throw pillow holiday embellishments.
  • Pillow cover
  • Felt (I used the 29 cent sheets from Michael's, needed about 7-8 of them)
  • Glue gun
  • Pins
I took my inspiration from Centsational Girl but varied the assembly method from her tutorial. I don't have a sewing machine, so instead I cut out the leaves (about 12 bigger sized, 8 smaller sized) and then arranged/glued them to a felt square base.
After gluing a felt circle to the middle to cover up all the meeting points right there, I attached the whole thing to my pillow cover. If you had a sewing machine, you could make your own, but I'd recommend going the $6 Ikea pillow cover route any day... I was going to hand stitch my flower to the pillow, but I started scheming other seasonal embellishment ideas as I was making the flower, so instead I glued two pins to the back of it and simply pinned it to the pillow cover, and now the pillow can be reused/redecorated throughout the year.
Here's my next one in the works...

  1. Very cute! I did this, too! Except, I sewed all my leaves on! Your method sounds tons easier. :) Great job!
