Holly Wreath Pillow

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my boxwood wreath holiday pillow.  Today I want to share with you a couple more pillows that I made for the craft fair.  Since the fair was so close to Christmas most of the pillows I made were holiday themed. 

Did you know that you can buy a variety of craft supplies on Etsy?  Etsy is an excellent craft supply source.  Most of the felt and pom-pom trim I use for the pillows I make, comes from Etsy.


To create the wreath, I traced a large round bowl onto the fabric.  Using my glue gun, I placed the leaves around the circle over the pencil marks.    

I added the pom-pom trim in clusters of three to represent berries.


I finished it off with a bow.


The second pillow was made the same way.


Do you plan on creating any pillows for your home this holiday season?


Save time by buying pre-cut shapes.


I'll be back with more pillows!
