I used fabric in muted shades of green with a little burlap thrown in. This, of course, is a personal choice so use whatever fabrics you like or have on hand. A small pack of fat quarters would be perfect for this project. They can be found at all craft and fabric stores.

I know these are technically Christmas trees, but I think you could leave this pillow out during January. It has a winter feel to it. If you want to see the other pillow tutorials I have shared, just click the link below.

    Oh how adorable. What a great idea. Thank you and can’t wait to try it.

  2. So excited about this project. I recently found some of my Dad’s shirts. These scraps are so precious to me!!! I’ve used them for projects for my siblings and my kids but not myself. Can’t wait to try!

  3. A great project for all ages at our Thanksgiving gathering!

  4. Can’t seem to print templates. Can you send it to me in an email?

      Hi Jane! I used a ready made pillow cover from Hobby Lobby…it’s a no sew project. :) Merry Christmas!

  8. Oh, you just always have the best ideas. I LOVE your blog. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  9. Great project, I love how the trees came out…what is also wonderful about this project is it is timeless. It easily fits in even when it isn’t Christmas.

  10. Jane @ Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    Ann, I LOVE your pillow and shared it on FB! I have never used Wonder Under and use my iron very infrequently, but I may have to pull it out to make one of these! I was just thinking that you could use the same technique to make a table runner!

  11. Your cushion is adorable. I do enjoy your blog Ann. Merry Christmas!

  12. Anita from Cedar Hill Farmhouse says:

    You are the pillow queen. These are gorgeous!!!

  13. Beautiful piece just in time for Christmas! :)

  14. Yvonne @ StoneGable says:

    Ann, what an adorable pillow. LOVE those colors as well as the different size of those darling trees! What a great gift idea! Merry Christmas, my friend!

  15. I really enjoy your blog. I have wanted to do some kind of pillow that was good for Christmas and winter, so this cute tree pillow will be perfect. Thank you so much for all the inspiring ideas. Merry Christmas!

    Well when I see the pictures and how it’s done it’s very tempting to try and do this project. You always make it look so easy and the way you explain things gives me the confidence to think I can do it too. I’m great at baking and cooking but not so great at the DIY projects so I think I will challenge myself and try it out. Here’s hoping there’s a nice Christmas pillow sitting in my hallway before Christmas day. Thank you and Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the best in 2016!!

  17. This is SUCH a cute pillow…the trees would also be perfect in shades of blue/ivory to carry into the winter months!

  18. Oh, my. These are so cute! I wish you had these in your shop!

  19. Ann, this is perfect for me, the non-seamstress. A little bit of winter with temperatures down in the twenties tonight, but 60 degrees forecast for Christmas Eve here in Ohio.

    The very cutest Ann!

  21. Dorene @ Seasonal Chapters says:

    These are adorable! Simple to make yet they add a festive handmade touch to your home. I agree that they could be left out after Christmas as part of your winter decor. Thank you for sharing the creative idea and template. Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas season!
