I’m excited to share my new thrifty DIY pillows with you today for the Christmas Ideas Tour. My decorating theme this year is white and metallic – did you see my Winter Wonderland mantel yesterday?
I bought a 4-pack of Target Threshold holiday napkins for $7.99, and they’re pretty large at 20×20 inches each. First I washed and dried them, hoping to avoid using the iron. (I despise ironing!)
To make a pillow, I faced the “good” sides toward each other and sewed near the existing hem around all the edges. I left about 4-5 inches unstitched on one side.
Then I reached my hand into the unstitched hole and pulled the pillow right-side out. I had two bags of Poly-fil ($3.99 each) and stuffed one bag of fiberfill into each pillow. Finally, I finished by carefully sewing the pillow closed by hand.
One pack of 4 napkins = $7.99
Two bags of fiberfill ($3.99 ea.) = $7.98
$15.97 total / 2 pillows = less than $8 per pillow
And these are large pillows, about 18×18 inches!
I just love how elegant they look and the extra metallic touch they add to my holiday/winter decor.
Would you make repurposed napkin pillows? They’re so inexpensive to make! <3
