Pottery Barn Inspired: Holly Berry Wreath Pillow

Pottery Barn Inspired: Holly Berry Wreath Pillow
I love making pillows!  One of my favorite holiday decorations is a festive pillow.  Pottery Barn is one of my favorite sources for decorating ideas.  I was inspired by their Holly Berry Wreath Embroidered Pillow Cover, pictured above.  So I decided to try and make my own version for a lot less.  I am so pleased how it turned out.

I created the wreath by tracing a large round object onto the center my burlap pillow cover.  I hot glued brown cording over my pencil lines to resemble a grapevine wreath.

Next, I added  pre-cut holly and berries(purchased from Etsy) around the wreath.  It was really easy to create and a great way to practice some basic sewing and crafting skills.
