Felt Garland Holiday Pillow : :

This pillow was completely inspired by my love for garland. Using multicolored cuts of felt with scalloped edges and green ric rac to connect them, I whipped up this pillow thinking it’ll be the perfect decoration to welcome another year of handmade goodness!

Christmas Garland Pillow

The colors aren't traditional Christmas, but I think the overall colorful mix is perfect for celebrations or just brightening up a room, and can be used as decor beyond just the holidays.

The wool blend felt combined with cotton fabric make this pillow soft and cozy. I do like these two, very different pillows together as a set and paired with my new dollhouse pillow, too. Speaking of which...

I am working on some new! In all sorts of colors and designs. This one is very Fall! For those of you who do think I am crazy for being all about Christmas already, but are just too nice to say so. lol

I am also thinking of putting together a little tutorial for this Garland Holiday Pillow to share sometime in the next couple of weeks. What do you think? Anyone interested? : )

As part of Betz White's blog tour for her Craftsy.com Fab Felt Holiday Crafts Workshop, I'll be sharing one more Christmas project tomorrow -- a Scrappy Holiday Garland! I hope you stop back!!!

This is so exciting. I am entirely obsessed with Christmas and the overall spirit of the holidays. I live in sunny SW Florida, and seeing these little projects makes me feel like I'm getting a good dose of the season! Thanks!

Love, love the simple garland pillow and since I have a healthy stash of felt, think I'll have to make a few! Thanks.

I love your pillows...I've got lots of Christmas fabrics and scraps...and...a huge bag of assorted felt. My GO! cutter would even cut some of these pieces.
