Poinsettia Pillow

I found a zippered pillow cover at the dollar store and decided to create something festive for my home. This would also make a nice, inexpensive gift (under $10). If you're handy with a sewing machine, you could make your pillow cover from fabric.


Approximate Time: About 1 hour


  • purchased pillow cover
  • silk poinsettia bush
  • fabric glue
  • small jingle bells
  • cardboard
  • pillow form or fiber fill
  • scissors


  1. Slip a piece of cardboard or several pages of newspaper inside the pillow to keep the glue from seeping through to the back side.
  2. Cut your poinsettia flowers into individual petals.

  4. Place a row of petals in a circle centered on your pillow form.

  6. Once you are happy with the placement, proceed to glue the petals in place using fabric glue. Repeat this process until the poinsettia is completely filled in.

  8. Glue 6-8 small jingles to the center. Set aside to dry completely. When dry, remove cardboard or paper from inside. Insert a pillow form or stuff with fiberfill.
