Decorative Pillows For the Holidays
If you are looking for a fast last minute before your guest
arrive project that you can fit in to your Christmas home
decorating theme, try adding some holiday charm to what you
would call non-holiday sofa style pillows. You know the ones.
They just lay there on your sofa attracting no attention,yet
taking up valuable space. Well, enough is enough. Not only will
you be able to transform the look of your current pillows
within seconds, you will also have custom designed pillows that
your guests are sure to love.
What is really nice is that thisproject
requires absolutely no sewing whatsoever. So those of you
afraid of needles have no need to worry. Begin by carefully
wrapping a felt ribbon around the front center of your pillow.
Next, taking a miniature felt-covered ornament type pillow,
attach it to the felt ribbons by tying the ornament hanger and
felt ribbon together. The ornament can be easily removed for
other purposes, like hanging on the Christmas tree the next
year, or attaching to a custom designed gift bag you might also
be creating. Note: Try using felt ribbon that comes with bells
attached, or different ornament design patterns with similar
felt-covered materials to add texture and interest to your
