Felt Wreath Pillows

AKA Design Felt Wreath Pillow 4 BLOG PIC

Hi there Hello Yellow readers! It’s Shannon from AKA Design. Today I want to share with you an easy felt wreath pillow that can be made in about an hour or so. While I’m naturally a creative person, I like to keep my projects nice and simple. And if they can be done in a short period of time, all the better!

Step 6. Place the two 15″ x 15″ beige felt squares (one with leaves and one without) together with right sides facing OUT. Sew together on three sides, leaving a half inch allowance as shown. (No hemming is needed for felt as it doesn’t fray.)

Step 8. Hot glue white pom poms in threes around wreath on pillow. (These look a little like cotton balls, but they really are pom poms!) Let cool.
