Christmas Pillow Covers Reviewed

Cover Pillows As A Part Of Your Christmas Decoration

Christmas is my most favorite holiday of the year and I absolutely love decorating every room in the house for the season. Until this year, I had not considered using Christmas pillow covers as a part of the decor.

I have a few pillows that already have a Christmas theme and I always bring them out. The trouble with that is, they are only used for about a month or so and then boxed away until next year. I have discovered that pillow covers are available that have the holiday theme which can go over existing pillows and they really are not very expensive to use. Actually, they are much less than the cost of purchasing a single pillow with the Christmas theme. When the season is over, I can box the case or cover and still use my decorative pillows for the rest of the year.

There are several options when it comes to pillow covers for Christmas. My favorite was this set:

I love the whimsical and festive designs on the six covers and the vintage look to the patterns in this particular set. They bring some nostalgic thoughts to my mind.

Of course none of us are limited to a vintage themed set; there are many choices available. You can purchase them in a set or as a single case in a variety of patterns.

I really think that the option of using Christmas pillow covers is a fun idea but it is also economical. What about you? Did you know that you could use a cover for your pillows to decorate for the holidays? Would you use them?

Pillows can Add a Great Touch to Your Home Decor

Pillows can add a bit of your personality to your home decor.  On this page I will review several of the pillow designs that are available on Zazzle

Zazzle pillows come in many different sizes and shapes and can be customized to fit your tastes. You may design your own pillow or choose one from one of the designers on Zazzle.

Round Pillow

The pillow above is an example of one of the round pillows you will find at Zazzle.  This particular pillow features photographs I took of the Portland Head Lighthouse.  The round pillows are 16 inches in diameter and have a hidden zipper.  They are wrinkle free thanks to the 100% brushed polyester fabric and can be machine washed.  

Design Suggestions

Here are some suggestions for designs for your pillows.
  • A favorite flower
  • Travel photographs- remember your trip with a beautiful toss pillow
  • Child's photograph- delight a little one with their photo on a pillow
  • Your pet
  • Wild Animals
  • Sports Themes
  • Seasonal Photos- change your decor to match the seasons
  • Holiday Photos- decorate for each holiday

Square Pillow

Here is a pillow I made using a floral design.  This square 16x16 pillow is reversible so I put a single blossom on one side and a bunch of blossoms on the opposite side.  These beautiful plumeria flowers were photographed at The Butterfly House in St. Louis, Missouri.  This pillow is also available in a 20x20 size.

Lumbar Pillow

The lumbar pillows come in a 13x21 size.  You have a choice of the polyester material or a 100% grade A cotton material.  Both are machine washable.  The reversible pillow below was designed using some photographs I took of monarch butterflies.

This delightful sea turtle makes a great decorative pillow.  It was designed by fellow Review This staffer Coletta.  I can see this colorful pillow as part of your summer or sun room decor.
