6 Ways to Use Holiday Pillows, Other Than On the Couch

For a festive season, incorporate holiday pillows into every detail of your winter décor. Here are six ideas to try.

How to Use Holiday Pillows

  1. For added color, use them instead of your typical bookends.
  2. Santa has yet to arrive. So pile pillows under the tree until gifts take their place.
  3. Stack them in a basket near the fireplace hearth for easy grabbing.
  4. Play with texture on the mantel with one or two rectangular pillows and garland.
  5. Place on windowsills (facing in or out). They’ll double as insulation.
  6. Prop them up along a wide staircase for a glimpse of cheer with every step.
