PRETTY PEARL SNOWFLAKE PILLOW COVER

We love decorating with holiday pillows. They provide an easy way to add colour and a festive feel to any room. A clever idea is to make a pillow cover instead of a stuffed pillow, which means it can slip it over an existing couch throw for the season and then remove it after. It also makes for easier storage throughout the rest of the year and needs less supplies to make it. And our snowflake pillow cover is a perfect project to tackle while watching your favourite Christmas movie, as sewing the pearls onto the cover will take time, but it’s a simple task.
