Angel Wings on My Pillow

Hello again from The French Hen's Nest

   As I was scrolling through the parties last week, I found a post that had a poinsettia pillow, which was so pretty. It was made with boiled wool.  I have tried to find the blog, but I can't, and of course I can't remember the name.  As I scrolled further down, I found a pillow with angel wings. The wings were made of felt, and it looked so pretty, that I was inspired to make my own Christmas pillow with angel wings.   

First, I had to make a run to the craft store for supplies.  I went to AC Moores, found the felt, bought a little glue and was ready to go.  I used quick stick felt and decided that I would add something more to mine, maybe feathers. 

The nice thing about quick stick felt is that it can be removed from the pillow after the holiday, if you wish. I put the wings on a burlap pillow case that I've had for a while, and was just waiting to do something creative with it. I first drew the wing pattern on the back of the felt, then cut them out.  After placing the wings on the pillow case, I glued the feathers onto the  wings one by one.  I really like the way it turned out.  Here it is, hope you like it.

  I also had a white silk decorative pillow case sitting around, and decided to paint a pattern on it with a stencil. I'm decorating a bedroom for my granddaughter, Em, for Christmas and I'm using white and gold. I had a small container of Martha Stewart gold paint, and a sponge paint brush? Sponge? Anyway, I love how it turned out, looks great in her bedroom.

These were two fun and easy projects to do. And it took care of that creative yearning for a while. Sure you know what I mean.

Thank you for visiting.  Take care.

  1. What a beautiful pillow! Love those added angel wings!Your stencil pillow is pretty too!

    1. Good Morning Anne, Thank you so much, it was so easy and fun. Thank you for visiting, have a lovely day. Jeannie

  2. Good Afternoon Jeannie, What a fun project. I think the idea of Quick Stick felt is amazing, as you can ring the changes with each season, although I don't see why you would want to change your cushion, as it is very pretty. There is nothing nicer than spending the afternoon, sitting down and being creative. Have a lovely Sunday. Best Wishes Daphne
