No hyggelig home is complete without having an abundance of pillows and blankets in the space. The idea for harnessing hygge is to create a warm and cozy environment. A space that makes you want to keep curled up inside just waiting for the next winter storm. A space that makes you just want to relax and sip hot chocolate all day. Well, my Cricut DIY pillow ideas is designed to help do just that. My hygge inspired pillow acts as a constant reminder that home is where the hygge is! Home is your comfortable safe space.

Home Is Where The Hygge Is Pillow

CategoryDifficultyBeginnerTotal Time45 mins

The Cricut is such an amazing machine. With so many different materials to work with the possibilities to create custom projects is limitless. Today, I'm sharing my "Home is Where the Hygge Is" pillow tutorial. If you've never worked with glitter iron on vinyl before, add it to your Cricut bucket list.

Materials To Cut
 1 20" square pillow case in the colour of your choice
 1 sheet of glitter iron on vinyl in a contrasting colour to the pillow case
 1 20" square pillow insert
Everything Else
 cricut regular grip mat
 scissors
 weeding Tool
 iron
 parchment paper

Directions & Assembly
1

With your Cricut, cut your design onto glitter vinyl. Make sure when you print the design that it's a mirrored image, so it reads the correct way when transferred onto the fabric pillowcase.

2

Prep the pillowcase by making sure that any creases have been ironed out.

3

Place the vinyl design onto the top of the pillowcase. Align the design to where you want it. I usually measure to make sure I have it completely centred.

4

Place a piece of parchment paper between your design and the iron. With the iron on the cotton/linen setting, press and firmly hold the iron over the different parts of the design for 10-15 seconds. When moving the iron to another area, lift the iron up instead of sliding it over the design.

5

Start to remove the plastic sheet. If there are areas of the glitter vinyl design which are lifting from the pillow, reapply heat to the area to ensure the vinyl sticks to the fabric pillowcase.

6

Stand back and admire your finished project!

I absolutely love how this pillow turned out. I love how the cream colour of the linen pillowcase complements and contrasts against our dark brown leather couch. I love how the glitter vinyl catches the light and adds a little bit of sparkle to the room. And most of all I love the message... It's a cute little reminder that the cozy comfy loving feeling of hygge lives in our house!

DIY Cricut Hygge Pillow Project

Whats Your DIY Pillow Ideas Style?

You can customize this project to your personal decorating tastes with colours of your home. Also, you can use the materials that you have on hand (ie: vinyl, pillow covers). I purchased both the glitter vinyl and the pillow cover to create my pillow off of Amazon.ca. The vinyl came from Glitz Vinyls. For my first time working with glitter heat transfer vinyl, I was really happy with. It handled well and was really easy to use and looked great on my finished project – Definitely 5/5 stars!

If you liked this post don’t forget to sign up for emails or follow me on my social media channels. I will constantly be adding access to free SVG files as I create the projects. Also, if you tried my project I would love to see pictures of the finished project in your space. Also, I would love to hear your feedback. Please leave a comment down below or send me an email!

Also, if you like my finished hygge DIY pillow idea but you don’t have either the tools or time to make one yourself, you can visit my Etsy store and purchase the completed project there.

Happy hygge-ing!
