Ask anyone to name the number one home décor project， and nine out ten people will answer： 'a pillow.' We're guessing that tenth person is the same guy who's always throwing off those surveys in which nine out of ten dentists agree about something. Never happy， that guy. No matter； we're delighted to stick with the majority and give you a trio of terrific holiday pillows to try.？All of ours were made from fabric scraps leftover from our other Noel Home projects. But， I've listed yardages， as well as the names of the actual fabric we usedpersonalized teacher supplies， should you want to start from scratch. Let's show ol' one-out-of-ten the decorating power of pillows!

Then， using a yarn needle， thread the pom hanger through the needle， and hand stitch a pom onto each corner.

Winter in Minnesota can be tough. The frigid temperatures and record-breaking snowfall leave many of us searching for flights to some faraway tropical destination. Winter in Palm Springs, however, paints a much better picture.
