Easy No Sew Christmas Pillow Decor

I can't believe it's already time to start thinking about pulling out all the Christmas decorations.  It seems like I just finished the major task of packing everything away from last Christmas.   All the Christmas magazines coming in the mail have inspired to me start working on my Christmas decor.  This pillow was inspired by one that I saw in the Pier 1 Imports catalog.  

alt="Easy No Sew Pillow with Red Satin Bow"



I love the big red silk bow, and since I have several small pillows I wanted to use in Christmas decor I decided to tackle this project.  It was super easy, because I used HeatnBond No-Sew adhesive.  I was afraid that the adhesive would show through the fabric, but it didn't!  It actually worked perfect, because it was just stiff enough for the bow to hold its shape.

Here's another one I created with green fabric.

I cut 3 strips of fabric and used a very thin strip of the no-sew adhesive around all the edges.  Sorry for this horrible photo, but red silk and inside night lighting do not work well together.

After the fabric cooled, I wrapped the first piece around the pillow, and secured it with a small piece of floral wire.

I used the second piece for the top part of the bow, and  attached it with floral wire.  The piece above is the one that I used for the bottom part of the bow.  I folded it in half and tied all the pieces together with a strip of fabric.

I added the white embellishment, because it reminded me of a snowflake.

Here is another one that I made the same way, except I added a silk rosette.  I may go back and add a bow to it.  This was a gold pillow, so I wrapped it in the red fabric.

Besides being super easy to make, the best part is it slides right off the pillow.  When the holidays are over, you still have your pillow to use year round.

  Well, there's one Christmas project down.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I appreciate it so much, and love hearing from you, too!

Kathy! You totally beat me to the punch with this one! I was in Pier 1 a couple of weeks ago (there is one about a mile from my house) and as soon as I walked in I saw this pillow and took a picture, thinking it would be an easy project. Your knock off is great! Just beautiful!
