While I was dressing up the house for Christmas it became painfully obvious that I decorate with red.  Lots of red.  So much so that I’m afraid to let friends with dye allergies come inside the house.

This little project was not going to have a smidge of red even if it killed me.  Although you could use red felt on a cream colored background–just don’t tell me if you make one because I might cry a little.

To make this super-fast no-sew throw pillow you need

1. Felt

2. Hot glue gun

3.  Pillow insert

4. Scissors

5.  10 minutes

Cut your felt 4-5 inches larger than your pillow measurements.  Mine was a 14″ square pillow so I cut my felt into 19″ squares.

I drew a line 2.5″ from the edge all the way around on one piece of the felt and then followed that line one side at a time with hot glue.  I did one edge at a time so that the glue wouldn’t cool before I got the second piece of felt placed.

After doing that on 3 sides, stuff your pillow form in and close with hot glue.

Now, from here you can add your design.

I chose a poinsettia, but you could go in any direction.

I cut mine with my Silhouette (shocker) and just hot glued it in place.
