Food Throw Pillows

Updated on June 15, 2014

The Only Throw Pillows that let you have a Food Fight and a Pillow Fight both at once!

Maybe a food pillow fight isn't the first thing that comes to your mind when you look at these awesome fun food-themed throw pillows, but hey - don't we call them "throw pillows" for a reason?

Whether you want to add a unique oomph to your family room or man cave, to bring a touch of whimsy to your bedroom d├ęcor, or bring a little comfort of home to a dorm room for that first-time-living-away kid who suddenly got so much taller than you - look no further than a yummy decorative pillow with a sense of humor.

And the best part? You won't find a lot of green salads and healthy veggies among the snack-inspired designs, but at least you can indulge - even make your own novelty junk food pillows - and know these goodies have no calories!

Cheeseburger Pillows

Hand-Crafted Burger Stack

One of the coolest cushions shaped like food I've seen is a stacking set of Burger Pillows on - an upcycling work from thrift fabrics.

Twenty-inch micro-suede round pillows in a light brown or tan color are the pieces of hamburger bun, swirled with mustard and ketchup (yellow and red) inside, and buttons as "seeds" on the top bun. You stack it as you like - up to 20 inches high - with one-of-a-kind crinkly pickle slices in fleece, a lettuce leaf in light green terry cloth, a tomato slice made in a nubbly red fleece fabric, and a cheese slice (the "cheese food product" kind we always get on burgers from fast food joints) like an orangey-yellow cloth.

These tasty and creative cheeseburger pillows are part of the BurgerBarn Etsy shop of V. Nicole Richards in Florida, and all handmade of course. She usually has only one burger pillow set for sale at a time, so it may be gone if you're slow to act - but if you're a DIY type, take it as inspiration.

Cheeseburger Beanbag - Would you like Fries with that?

Hamburger Beanbag Chair

Let's carry the pillow concept to the extreme for a second, shall we? An overgrown pillow is... a beanbag chair, of course! Here's a fun digitally printed beanbag in the shape of a cheeseburger, complete with slices of those really good purple onions for an extra shot of color, along with the usual condiments and add-ons in green (lettuce, pickles) and red (tomato, ketchup). This one shown, in the doesn't-do-it-justice photo above, is the adult beanbag chair size of Wow Works Hamburger Beanbag, just over 30 inches - great for a dorm room - but they've also got a Junior size (about 15 inches) that would make an awesome little footstool for the family room as well as a fun accessory for a kid's bedroom or playroom.

Sew Your Own Junk Food - Pillow Patterns

Keep an eye on eBay auctions, for the Simplicity sewing pattern to make pillows in the shape of oversized junk food (Simplicity 8643 Crafts Sewing Pattern). You'll get the pattern to make french fries, hot dog, donut, and Oreo-type cookie pillows, too, all in the one package! It's from back in the 1970s and it's getting very hard to find, so grab it if you see it (or anything similar). I've also seen it for sale on Etsy from time to time, so you might check there - or adapt an existing pattern for big floor pillows, to get the hamburger look.

Homer Simpson's Donut - United Labels Licensed Simpsons (TV) Fat Plush Donut Pillow... or Realistic Pink Donut Pillow

Mmmmmm, donuts.... with sprinkles!

Unmistakeable, for fans of the TV show, here's Homer's dream - a giant donut. Pink frosted with sprinkles, it's cartoony delicious for kids' rooms or dorm decor. Just don't dream of donuts and wake up munching your pillow, like our Mr Simpson would do!

No worries, though, if you're looking for a food pillow that's a little less sugary-pink - the lovely and talented Ann Le has another easy-to-follow video tutorial where she shows how to make your own Strawberry Pillows, even recycling old t-shirts and fleece throws, if you like!

      These food pillows would make great dorm room décor. Young people seem to always be hungry. Lol...these would fit right in with their interests.

      @Ruthi: Alas, the burger in the big picture is only throw-pillow size, but I agree, Ruthi - a big hamburger dog bed would be just too funny! Hmm, there is that vintage sewing pattern (above) to make a floor-pillow-sized hamburger... now you've got me thinking!

      These food throw pillows are delightful! I could not help thinking that the hamburger pillow would be great as a dog bed (if large enough). But, of course, the dog would also want the pork chop pillows.
