Christmas Pillows on the Cheap

Here is a money saving tip!

Have you seen the cute pillows at Target that are $12.99 each?

Have you also seen that matching placemats can be purchased for $3.99?

Buy 3 of the placemats instead and follow this easy tutorial!

Use a seam ripper to open up a small section on the bottom of the placemat.

Stuff with stuffing (I had this already, but this can be purchased cheap, especially if you have a coupon).

Sew it back up!

You get 3 Christmas pillows for the price of one!

    OMG! I was just there and saw the whole line. What a GREAT idea. Also, I made the white bean chili yesterday- delish! AND yesterday I visited the links connected to your award, so fun. Congrats on the award as well- you deserve it!

    Genius!!!! What a great way to get cute pillows – and 3 for the price of 1 – LOVE IT! I saw these at Target and just couldn’t justify spending that much on 1 pillow that would be in my house for 1 month out of the year. But now I can do it with the place mat! YAY!!!!

    How cute & thrifty! Now, if I could only sew…

  9. Allison says:

    That is FABULOUS! Love it!

  10. Seriously, girl. You really do have the BEST ideas! Thanks for sharing them with people like me WHO DO NOT have these sort of inspirational ideas!

  11. Nanette says:

    I love this idea…but to make it even easier for us that have no storage space, I think I’ll buy some right after Christmas and make them into pillow cases that open in the back…so I can easily slip my regular decorative pillows into these cute cases. I simply cant store pillows in the attic, but there is always room for flat pillow cases!

    Placemat pillows are the best–thanks for linking up!

  16. Babsmadeit says:

    I HAD to go to Target today and get these placemats. They are on sale for $3! Thanks for the tip!

  17. Seriously, this is brilliant. I need a sewing machine, bad. I just bought the snowflake pillow yesterday but I’m taking it back because it’s the wrong red… doesn’t match my other stuff.

    Thanks for joining my Flaunt it Friday party. I’m your newest follower. 🙂

  22. Hi!
    I did a pillow cover version of this, and several of my readers emailed me with “OMG, come look at this!” I like the combination of all three together, it’s incredibly festive, and it was a pleasure to find you!

  23. Pam says:

    To my credit, I saw your post before the holidays, was inspired to buy the reindeer place mat at Target…and just discovered it buried on my craft table today, nearly a month after Christmas. Sigh. I made the pillow anyway and tucked it away with my decorations for next year!
