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,  

Linking to some of my favorite parties


  1. I love this! Reindeer are my favourite animal, even when it's not christmas, so I adore this pillow! :)

  2. I love this!
    I have been envying all the Christmas pillows floating around and wishing I had some of my own...if only I could sew!

  3. I love working Christmas elements into the house other than the tree, so cute!

  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!

  5. I love simple decorations the best! Your pillow is just perfect!

  6. very cute. I am just obsessed with reindeer this year! Though I don't think I can make the pillow I might hunt down the ornament at the dollar tree =)
