Embroidered Christmas Pillow from Old Sweaters

Would you believe Cindy at Custom Comforts created this lovely embroidered Christmas pillow using items she scrounged up around the house? Cindy sewed up a pillow cover from one of my favorite materials, drop cloth, and created the holly leaves and pine cones from secondhand Goodwill sweaters. The icing on the cake is all the beautiful embroidery that Cindy did by hand! Are you as impressed as I am?!?

Christmas Countdown Advent Pillow

Today I have another fun Christmas pillow to share with ya’ll, and it’s one your kids will love too. Kimberly from Serendipity Refined sewed this Christmas countdown pillow as a gift for her sister’s family and even add a few personal touches, like a monogram on the star and her kiddo’s favorite question this time of year – How many days? How many times have you heard that lately?!? Ha! My kids would have a blast moving the star each day until Christmas!

Burlap Peace, Love, and Joy Pillow

Most of you know I am not much of a seasonal decorator. I know… GASP! BUT… I do love a pretty holiday pillow, and this one from Maryann at Domestically Speaking is drool-worthy. Plus, it only takes burlap and paint, which means cheap! Maryann used the “old school” freezer paper stencil method for her text, and just look at those beautiful, crisp lines. She also hand stitched her cover thanks to a broken machine, but I love how it adds to the rustic, grain sack look.

Stenciled “Jingle” Pillow that Jingles!

Maria from Our Home Away from Home has been working on her Christmas décor for weeks now. Just when Maria thought she had it all planned, the Pottery Barn holiday catalog came along and tossed another DIY challenge her way. The jute “Jingle” pillow was calling Maria’s name and she already had all the materials on hand to make her own. That’s pretty hard to resist, and who doesn’t love a cute and free pillow? I know I do!

Advent Calendar Pillow

If you are one of my regular Infarrantly Creative readers, then you know I have a thing for counting down to a special holiday or event. Last year I created this advent pillow cover as another way to enjoy the anticipation of counting the days until Christmas. I love how pretty it is, and my kids love moving the candy cane to a new pocket each day!

Poinsettia Pillow

Heather from Thrifty Stories had been oogling Pottery Barn’s poinsettia pillow for over a year now and finally made her own with a zipper closure for easy storage.  This pillow is both elegant and fun with the jingle bell center. My kids would have a blast shaking this pretty pillow whenever they could get their little hands on it!

Christmas Stocking Pillow

This holiday pillow from Melissa at 320 Sycamore ticks all the boxes – crazy cheap, amazingly easy, very versatile, and oh so cute! Melissa simply glued some twine with mini stockings to a ready-made pillow. But wait there’s more {wink}… Melissa used the reverse side of a snowflake pillow, so all she has to do is flip it over after the holidays for instant winter décor. That Melissa is one smart cookie!

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow

Pillows made from authentic feed sacks can cost a pretty penny, but Char from Crap I’ve Made shows it’s pretty simple to get the same look for less. Char created her pillow cover from drop cloth and then jollied it up with a stenciled Old Saint Nick. She scuffed up the image with sandpaper for a well-worn, vintage feel. No, it’s not made from a fifty-year-old grain sack, but, personally, I’d rather have a pillow customized with my choice of graphic, text, color, etc.!
