Holiday Tree Pillow

This season I wanted to challenge myself to make most of my holiday decorations.  Although easier said than done, I have been able to complete a few projects. Tonight I wanted to share with you a pillow I made.

For my pillow form, I added pom-pom trim to leftover fabric.

To cut my felt shapes, I purchased a Sizzix Paddle Punch from Ebay.

Once the shapes were cut, I attached them to my pillow form with fabric glue.

Before stuffing my pillow I allowed the felt pieces to completely dry.

I love how it turned out.

I think I may have a hard time packing it away after the holidays!


  1. It turned out beautifully Brandi :-) What a creative idea.

  2. What do you have a wonderful instrument? It looks as if it were a bottle opener. I'm excited, what you can do with it. So many creative ideas are possible with this thing. It's only for fabrics or also for paper?


  3. That's so cute! Love how it turned out, and I haven't seen anything else like it lately. I might have to look for one of those punches.

  4. OMG Brandi...I LOVE it!!! Great usual. :)

  5. A beautiful pillow! Thanks for sharing! Merry Christmas!

  6. Yet another gorgeous pillow, Brandi!! I LOVE it! I really like the pom-poms. So cute!

    I haven't seen those Sizzix punches before; I might go and check 'em out.


  7. Wow that it too cute!
    Handy little tool!
    I saw your wreath and came over to say hi!!!

  8. Wow! I really like this. I didn't even know there were tools that punched out felt. That pillow is great! Thanks so much for linking up today!!!

  9. I'd have a hard time putting it away, also. I've never heard of a Sizzix Paddle Punch. I think you've started something here, Brandi :) Love the little pom-poms! Very cute!

    Merry Christmas! xx

  10. I love your pillow, so pretty and I love the pom poms!
    I hope you will try the wreath, I think you will love it!

  11. Brandi, what a great project! We should start a felt club!! ;) I didn't know there was something to cut felt with, off to search about that!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  12. I love felt, and I love this pillow! How cute is that? Love the paddle punch. I have a Sizzix Big Kick die cutter that I cut felt with all the time. Love it!

  13. So cute! I've never seen a punch like that before. It's awesome. Thanks for sharing! I'd love for you to come grab a EBTKS button! :) Merry Christmas!
