Holiday Pillow DIY

blogimg163

Carol Smyth from Vancouver is sharing an easy DIY pillow project from her blog The Design Pages. Make one for a friend, it’s a great gift.

MATERIALS REQUIRED
* Pre-made pillow cover and pillow insert
* Pencil
* 2 different colours of felt (suggested: red or green for primary colour, brown for secondary)
* Fabric glue
* Cardboard

Step 1

Create a cardboard circle template that is approximately 1 1/2′ in diameter. Using a pencil, trace 28 circles onto your primary fabric and then cut them out.

Step 2

Place a small dot of glue at the bottom of one circle and then pinch the area together so that it forms a petal. Hold it for a few seconds or until the glue is dry. Repeat this step for all 28 circles.

Step 3

Using a secondary colour of felt, cut a 1′ x 2′ rectangle and place it lengthwise near the bottom of your pillow cover. This will be your tree trunk. Place one petal directly above the tree trunk with the pinched section nearest the top and then lay three petals on each side. Decrease the number of petals in each row until you reach one.

Step 4

Once you have determined the placement of each petal, start gluing the petals into place. And there you have it. A simple, yet festive, addition to your holiday decor.
