Make a Wintry Peppermint-Stripe Pillow
Add another layer of cheer to your holiday decor with this retro peppermint-stripe throw pillow. The best part? No needle and thread required.
- white pillowcase
- pillow insert
- red ribbon (varied widths and shades)
- white ribbon (varied widths and shades)
- stick pins
- fabric glue
Remove the pillow insert from the pillowcase. Lay the pillowcase on a flat, clean work surface.
Roll Out Ribbons
Roll out the ribbons in a diagonal across the pillowcase, alternating ribbon color and type. Cut to create a 1-inch overhang on either side (Image 1). Leave the spacing between the ribbons slightly random and pin into place as you work your way down (Image 2).
Using the fabric glue, attach the ribbons to the pillowcase, removing the stick pins as you go.
Trim Ribbon and Add Insert
Once the ribbons are attached to the pillowcase, neatly trim the excess ribbon along the edges (Image 1) and replace the pillow insert (Image 2).
