Happppppppy Friday my friends! Today I’m sharing with you the easiest DIY Christmas pillow ever. Really, it is. This is a 5 minute pillow and it only costs $10. Pretty crazy, right?! I’ve actually been a busy bee getting our whole house decorated for Christmas. I know, it’s early, but I have a few big holiday projects coming up soon so I have to get going now. And even though I didn’t plan to start sharing Christmas decor posts until next week, I seriously could not wait another minute to share this super thrifty trick with you guys. Here’s my $10 pillow:
Adorable, right? Ok. Let me tell you how I did it. This all started when I was doing a little online shopping and came across this canvas Christmas gift bag for a whopping $10 on Amazon. My very first thought when I saw it was how I wish I could find a pillow that had the same design. Then it hit me: just use the gift bag as a pillow cover. BOOM.
This is what it looked like when it arrived. I ironed the wrinkles out and began looking around the house for pillows I could use to fill the bag. I ended up using a couple of the summer-y pillows I had packed up for the winter. I threw a few in so it was nice and full and that was it. DONE.
I absolutely love this North Pole Post Office pillow and it literally took about 3 minutes and 26 seconds to put together. This bag is canvas, so it’s nice and heavy–I was really impressed with the quality. Can’t beat it for $10. We all know how expensive throw pillows and pillow covers are–especially those that are seasonal.
So once I discovered this trick I went on the hunt for more large gift bags. I found a similar one at Target for $8 and I did the exact same thing. This is the Burlap Special Santa Delivery Jumbo Gift Bag.
Again I just stuffed it up with a few of the throw pillows I don’t use in the winter and voila!
I am pretty jazzed about these pillows. I just can’t get over how inexpensive these large gift bags are. Amazon has lots of options and different styles. I also saw a few smaller ones at Target, so hurry over there and snatch them up before they’re all sold out. I also thought this would be cute sitting on the fireplace hearth. Lots of possibilities with these large bags!
Well I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak at my Christmas decor. I have some really great and inexpensive Christmas ideas and DIY projects coming up– it all kicks off next week! Let me know what you think of my idea. Are you going to give it a try? I’d love to chat!
