Appliqued Deer Silhouette Pillow

Jessica from Sew Homegrown created this deer head silhouette pillow to add a little festivity to her couch. Jessica’s hubs drew a pattern (that has kindly been made available to Jessica’s readers), which Jessica traced and cut from a colorful, textured fabric. She then used a dense zigzag stitch to sew the deer to the front square of the pillow. Like Jessica, I love that this pillow is seasonal without being too Christmas-y, so you don’t have to pack it up with the rest of your Christmas decorations.

I love a good DIY wreath, and this puffy pom-pom wreath made by Tara from Between You and Me is totally swoon-worthy! The great news is that’s also totally doable for the crafter and non-crafter alike. I absolutely adore the peppermint stick ribbon and the fact that this is a Christmas wreath that doesn’t scream Christmas. With a quick ribbon change, it could take you all the way through winter!
