Here's how to create a Christmas Tree Pillow:
To begin the Upcycled Christmas Tree Pillow, gather all supplies. Wash and dry the king-size envelope-style pillow sham. The one I found at an antique store is off-white and quilted, but any plain sham will work. Flip the sham over and measure a rectangle that is 12″ by 26″ in the center of the fabric.
Sew around the perimeter with a sewing machine, remembering to backstitch at the corners. Trim all loose threads with scissors. Cut around the sewn edges with pinking shears, leaving approximately one inch of fabric all around.
Download, print, and cut out Upcycled Christmas Tree Pillow patterns below ⇓ Secure paper tree trunk pattern to brown fabric with straight pins and cut out with pinking shears. Repeat with the triangular tree pattern and six different green fabrics, cutting out each with pinking shears. Layout Christmas tree shapes on pillowcase overlapping from bottom to top.
Attach each piece of fabric to the pillowcase with E6000 Fabri-Fuse Liquid Fabric Glue, by running a bead of glue around the edges. Start with the tree trunk and work toward the top of the tree. Once dry, draw stitches around the outside edge of each fabric shape using a black fabric paint pen.
Collect a variety of yellow ribbons, rick racks, fabric scraps, lace, ball fringe, and other trims and cut them to eight-inch lengths. Secure the center with a piece of yellow ribbon tied in a tight knot. Attach the scrappy star to the top of the tree with a large safety pin. Remove the scrappy star when laundering the pillowcase.
Quick and Easy Upcycled Christmas Tree Pillow:
Roll up and insert the Poly-Fil Premier Lumbar Pillow Insert into the Upcycled Christmas Tree Pillow Cover using the envelope closure. Poly-Fil® Premier ™ Ultra Plush pillow inserts have the look and feel of down and are a favorite among designers, crafters. They are filled with polyester fiberfill and feature a cotton/polyester, high-quality cover. Perfect for adding a splash of color or renewing the look of any room in your home.
