I was actually laying in my bed the other night when I had the idea to create this little Christmas tree out of words. I am lucky the idea stuck in my brain rather than fading off into dream land when I fell asleep. But it stuck, so I did it and I love how it turned out!
What I did next was use my cutting machine to cut it out and put it on a pillow:
In glitter vinyl because I love glitter vinyl!

Christmas Tree Pillow Tutorial:
- Pillow form
- Heat Transfer Glitter Vinyl (I used Silhouette’s new extra sparkly kind and I LOVE it!)
Use this template and upload it into your cutting program:
Make sure to mirror image this when cutting on your vinyl.
Cut a piece of fabric that is the dimensions of your pillow plus one inch going one direction. So I had 20 by 20 inch pillows, so I cut my fabric 20 by 21 inches.
Iron the glitter vinyl to your pillow. (Instructions on how to do that here.)
Sew the pillow around all 4 sides (with right sides together) but leave about 10 inches open at the center of the bottom. Turn it right side out and stuff your pillow form inside.
Sew the opening shut and display proudly!
Just for fun I also made a snowflake pillow!
