Home Alone is one of my family’s most favorite Holiday movies! We like the original the best and it is a movie we watch every Christmas. My son Derek was 8 years old when we first watched it together. The same age as Macaulay Culkin’s character, Kevin, in the movie. He is 26 years old now.

I have so many fond memories of Derek dressing up in his Dad’s suit coat and hat carrying a little suitcase pretending to be one of the characters from Home Alone. He actually memorized entire scenes and we would sit around and watch him put on a little show. It really seems like yesterday! If you have watched the movie, it was the scene below that said “keep the change ya filthy animal” that was his absolute favorite. He thought it was the funniest thing!

I knew immediately that I wanted to make something with this quote. I decided to make a pillow based on this but changed it up a little so it is a funny Christmas pillow. Here is what I came up with:

I decided to write “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal” on the pillow for a funny nod to the movie. Let me show you how simple this pillow was to make. 

Supplies

Pillow Cover (Hobby Lobby)
Sharpie – Paint Pen Black

I used a linen pillow cover that I picked up at Hobby Lobby at 50% off making it $4.99! I love these pillow covers and use them for lots of DIY pillow projects. I started with a stencil and used the paint pen to trace Merry Christmas on the top of the pillow, then lightly colored it in.

For the “ya filthy animal” quote, I wanted it to be a freehand style as it is meant to be funny and light. It is a nice contrast to the rigid stencil font. I used a piece of chalk to freehand the words until I was happy with the placement and simply traced it with the paint pen.

Just to add a little something decorative, I used some scrap linen to create a small flower and pinned it to the corner.

Your pillow turned out as cute as cute as can be! I love seeing all the creativity on blog hops, plus it's such a great way to find new blogs to follow. I wanted to let you know that the link "to follow The Moments at Home on Instagram" isn't working.

Thank you for the chance to enter this awesome giveaway. Merry Christmas.

Very creative and unique, I doubt you would find this in a store and who doesn't love this movie. Thanks for sharing!
