No Sew Christmas Pillow

I love the idea of buying pillows for the home just for Christmas but I’ve never done it.  And they are usually quite pricey.  I

had this white pillow hanging around so I thought I would try to do a simple DIY with no sewing!

  • white pillow
  • red felt
  • iron on hemming tape {Stitch Witchery}
  • felt pen {Sharpie}
  • scissors
  • iron
  • jute or burlap ribbon


1.  Photocopy large letters J O Y and cut them out.

 I’m sure there is some more sophisticated way of doing this (i.e. transfer paper) but I just used what I had.

2.  Trace the letters on the red felt.

3. Cut out the felt letters and place them on your pillow.

4.  Cut small pieces of the hemming tape for the underside of your letters.  Place and carefully turn over.  Iron down.

5.  Wrap a pretty ribbon around your pillow.  The jute ribbon I used has wire in it which makes it easy to tie a pretty bow.

    So cute! What a great idea and I really like the touch of the ribbon. I don’t usually splurge on Christmas pillows but this makes the idea reasonable.

    Also, love your entry….I crave an entry that has room for a table in the middle for wonderful displays!!!! Maybe one day.

    Love this pillow and all its elements – white, burlap and red accents. That is perfection for me!
    Featuring it tonight!
    Thanks for linking up!
