Happy Wednesday Friends! Are you a pillow person? I am for sure--whether it's a comfy stack on my bed or a new look for the sofa, I can't seem to get enough! Rather than buy new for each season, I have a thrifty way to change mine up. Join me for a fashion show of pillows!
After my fall home tour, I shared how to dress up bargain pillows with a little thrifted bling. You can see those here. Then just last week, in A Very Thrifty Christmas, I shared this holiday pillow. It's a velvet favorite in robin's egg blue that I've had several years. Here's how I recreated it as a sparkly Christmas tree pillow:
Last month at my favorite annual craft sale, I found this pretty yo-yo piece. Each yo-yo is crafted with metallic fabric which gives a shimmering effect, perfect for the holidays!
Next, I rummaged through my thrifted vintage jewelry collection and found two brooches.
Here's where it gets complicated--not! I pinned them on the pillow, then "buttoned" the yo-yos on. There were plenty of spaces between the yo-yos to add more jewelry, should you prefer but two seemed sufficient.
No sewing, no glue and no expense or extra pillow to store after the holidays--I'll simply remove the yo-yo tree until my velvet pillow gets her next wardrobe change!
Here's a few more pillows I've dressed for the holidays:
This little mini is sporting a burlap snowflake ribbon sash...
...and this lumbar pillow is wearing a jeweled snowflake!
The felt snowflake is pinned on with another brooch.
Do you have any pillows that would like new clothes for Christmas?
