DIY Reindeer Pillow

The other day I decided I wanted to have a little pop of red on a couch in my living room.

I wanted that little pop of red to be a reindeer.


So with what I had at home, I decided to make a reindeer cut-out for my plain pillow.

I like that it's not perfect and has some frayed edges.
Here's what I did...


I bought these adorable reindeer ornaments for my Christmas Tree at the Dollar Tree.  (I'll show you my tree soon.)  I had some red material and I simply placed the reindeer on the material, traced it and cut it out.


I removed the pillow from the material (this pillow is from Ross) then I centered the reindeer cutout on the front ...




... and simply hand-stitched the reindeer on.  (I want to be able to remove the reindeer and use the pillow after Christmas again.) Once it was stitched in place, I simply put the pillow back into place...




... and I love the little pop of red on my couch and the reindeer, well I think it's just adorable!


Come back soon to see more of what I've been doing around my home for Christmas Decor. It's definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here and I LOVE it!


May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,

  4. Very cute! I love the fabric you used for the reindeer and also that you made it 'temporary' so you can remove him and continue to use the pillow after the holidays!
