Button Christmas Wreath Pillow

I was at my favourite store -the dollar store, the other day, and I spotted a bag of green buttons. I picked them up, with the idea of making a little Christmas pillow with a wreath on it made out of the buttons.

I used a little left over drop cloth material to make the pillow cover. The first step was to cut out a rectangle to make an easy envelope style cover. Find the easy instructions for how to make one here, from the fall pillows I made last year. Next, work out where the centre of the front of the pillow will be, and use something round to draw a template to follow as you sew on the buttons -with a very light pencil mark. I used a side plate.

Then, sew on the buttons randomly -great tv watching project and it actually didn’t take as long as I thought it would, or maybe I’m just a speedy button sew-er on-er. 😉 When the buttons were all sewn on, I added a little bow to the top of the wreath, then stitched up the sides to make an envelope pillowcase, and added a pillow I already had.

It was a really inexpensive project, since I used a pillow and fabric I already had. I think it’s really sweet for Christmas and looks cute on my green couch.
