Felt Leaf Pillow

I mentioned on Monday that my cousin celebrated her 30th birthday!  In addition to having a little get-together for her, I also made her a pillow.


I went to Pinterest for a little inspiration, where I found this pillow.  I loved it and I hoped my cousin would too.  I purchased a few felt sheets and fabric in colors to match her room.


I spent a few hours cutting the leaf shapes, then gluing the leaves in a circle pattern in the center of the pillow.


My cousin loved her pillow because of its 3 dimensional look and I couldn't be happier!

*I used Google Images to find the original source of my inspiration pillow.  Similar pillows are available to purchase here.  I am in no way affiliated with this Etsy shop.  I just happen to love her pillows! : ) 

A huge thanks to, Vanessa @ Nifty Thrifty Things for featuring my pillow on her website!
