Christmas Pillows

The other day I decided to use some of the fun fabrics I have to make some Christmas throw pillows for the living room.  I have had this Christmas Tree pillow on my Christmas Pinterest board for a long time so I was ready to give it a go.   I got my inspiration from this Christmas Tree Pillow Tutorial I followed on Inspired Honey Bee.  She actually got her inspiration from a tree pillow on Style Me Pretty.  I didn't follow the tutorial exactly but I do love how they turned out! 
I made envelope pillows for both using Martha Stewarts Envelope Pillow Tutorial. 
Then I used heat n' bond to attach the JOY and trees. 
I did use a gold fabric paint around the letters to help them stand out against the white pillow!
Can't wait to decorate for Christmas so I can use them with the Christmas Afghan I am working on!
