Ballard inspired Christmas cushion

Using what I had, I wanted to create my own interpretation of this ornament adorned cushion
ballard cushions
I used freezer paper to create the bulbs, painted them in, added ribbon and some bows.
I’m going to add this into the mix at The CSI Project Pillow Challenge

  5. Super cute! These are a great idea for decorations. I'm doing the 12 days of Christmas for a friend and may just have to suck off your cool a little and copy the idea. Great job!!

  7. These are awesome! I finally found some freezer paper, just haven't used it yet. I love your new blog header too! Very festive!

  8. After seeing the two pillows in your first post, I had no idea that they were PAINTED! I was thinking, "I wish I had the patience for applique." You are a genius. Too cute!

    I'm stealing that idea and making one. Thanks for showing it off.
