Brighten your post-holiday decor by embellishing a pillow to reflect the winter landscape.

While true snowflakes consist of six sides, the crocheted doilies on this red pillow bring to mind those frosty white icons of winter. Start with a solid-colored pillow. We used red, but navy, light blue or another color that suits your decor would work just as well. Adorn the pillow with a variety of delicate crocheted doilies. Make your own or find some at thrift, antiques or vintage stores. Hand stitch or machine stitch the doilies to the pillow cover in several areas to secure. For a no-sew alternative, try using a fabric adhesive to attach the doilies to the surface of the pillow. Alternate doily sizes and shapes and overlap the edges to add plenty of interest.

This project originally appeared in the 2018 issue of Country Sampler Holiday Homes, which is still available to order.
