Christmas Pillows in Simple White and Gray

I’m not even going to try to hide that I’m crazy about Christmas. I love the warm festive atmosphere, the carols, the time with family.

Over the years, I mostly had the same decorations up each year.  Last year, I tried a new color scheme of red, turquoise, and silver.  This year, I want to do as much as I can in simple gray and white.  I started with our new modern tree skirt, since that is a focal point.

Next, I wanted to make some cute Christmas throw pillows.  The idea behind the pillows is simple.  It’s all the different designs and fabrics that make them fun! The instructions for the basic pillow cover can be found in the post on our living room pillows.  The instructions for making the appliqués can be found in this post from the onesie-decorating baby shower.  Since I put some work into all these new pillows, I chose designs that would last beyond Christmas and through the winter.

Here are some of the decorations I put on my new winter pillow covers!

And here is our living room with the new pillows.  There’s more I’d love to do, but I like how it’s coming together so far.

I’m also planning to make a throw blanket and some pillows out of a sweater. It could be a fiasco or an amazing project. If it’s the latter, you’ll see it here!

Are you feeling our snowy white Christmas theme?!
