Making Perfect Pillows With Just the Right Trims


I love trimmed pillows! I love the elegant and decorative look from trimmed pillows. Whenever I buy a pillow that has none, I find a way to fit the pillow with the appropriate trim.


Over this Christmas holiday, I found these adorable owl pillows in red. They matched the brown one I had from last year.



I thought the brown owl pillow needed an extra touch when I bought it, so I embellished it with decorative trim that matched the colors in the owl. It came out prefect!


I needed to find some trims that would make these new pillows more festive for the holiday and for winter use as well.


I found not one, but two different types of trim to use. The top is a beaded trim and the bottom is a brushed trim.


I hot glued the brush trim on to the pillow first. It’s very easy! I used a large style hot glue gun. Just be careful not to get the glue on you. I was next to my sink in my laundry room, just in case I got glued and I did. Ouch!!! It hurts to be beautiful or make your home beautiful. Cold water helps a lot! I then glued the beaded trim over the brushed trim and voila!

After a few painful incidences, my pillows looked much prettier.



See how nicely they fit in with the other trimmed pillows. It might be just me, but I like the look much better!
