I’m thrilled to be here! Jen and I go way back and I’m so happy to call her my friend.
One of my most favorite creative things to do is iron on transfers! It’s pretty easy and doesn’t require a lot of extra skill and I can create some pretty cute things in 30 minutes or less. I love easy but cool projects. (My glittered Ornaments were super fast too!)
Iron On Transfer Santa Pillow
This year, I’ve trimmed down in the amount of Christmas decorating I’m doing. Life has been too busy lately and I would rather enjoy the season by simplifying my look this year! I figure by adding just a hint of Christmas in each room will still make it festive, but will also cut down on the amount of work in putting it all away. Of course I have the tree and the cedar garland and the lights and my Christmas Countdown……..but while looking at the holiday graphics at The Graphics Fairy, I was inspired to use a few to create holiday dish towels and pillows. These also make great gifts too!
This Santa Pillow is my favorite! It makes me happy every time I look at it and I think it adds a festive look to my family room. I loved it so much, I also made a dish towel.
How To Make – Iron On Transfer Santa Pillow
I use the iron transfers from Jolee’s or Avery. You can find them at Michaels, or Office Depot. The Pillow cover is from IKEA.
After choosing & downloading your image (I found mine at The Graphics Fairy) Print onto your iron on transfer paper. Run your paper through your printer so it prints on the non glossy side. All the directions are included with the paper.
Once you print it out, trim the edges.
Place the image face down onto the surface you want to apply it to. You’ll be using a HOT iron, no steam. Apply pressure while ironing. Don’t over do it, I’ve discolored my fabric before by holding the iron down too long.
Let it cool for a couple of minutes. Don’t rub the paper with your hand immediately after ironing…….because it hurts. Just sayin…… After it’s cooled, slowly peel the paper away and you should see your image on your surface.
I’m so in love with it and plan on doing a few more with other holiday images. Simple, fast and so cute! My kind of craft!

Thanks Kim! I just love that Santa too! How could you not look at him and feel happy? Kim has amazing ideas on her blog, Today’s Creative Blog. Here are a few of my favorite projects of hers:
This Cool Teen Bedroom Makeover she did as a Lowe’s Creator was absolutely….COOL! I love how it turned out!
This Countdown to Christmas Craft was so fun! I love the glitter reindeer with the rustic wood!
I loved this post she did with the Reindeer Food Poem & Free Printable! She shares some great ideas to bring out the kid in all of us with this craft.
