Scrap Buster Fall Pillow

Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew shares a fabulous pillow cover tutorial to dress up those tired throw pillows this fall. Best of all, this is a “scrap buster” project designed to use up some of that scrap fabric that is taking up valuable closet space. For this fall-inspired pillow, Allison chose fabrics that simulate the colors or fallen leaves. However, Allison points out that the design possibilities are pretty much endless. Just check out the flower pillow she made using the same technique.

Thrifted Nut Bowl to Wood Slice Mirror

diy wood slice mirror

I know people often look at the things in thrift stores and garage sales and wonder what in the world it is and who would ever buy it. Like a nut bowl that looks like it was cut from a tree trunk. Where one person sees a strange, old nut bowl, a creative genius like Caitlin from the Desert Domicile sees an urban chic Anthropologie-inspired mirror. Caitlin took the $5 nut bowl and in just a few steps turned it into this amazing mirror that seriously gives the Anthro inspiration a run for its money. I love how Caitlin used one of her late grandmother’s Mexican woven belts so the mirror is not only stylin’ but meaningful.

Pom-Pom Fringe Pillow Cover

If you have got a couch, chair, or bed in need of a little pick-me-up, this pom-pom pillow from The Sassy Life is sure to infuse a bit of personality into the space! The sassy lady behind this pillow simply sewed layers of pom-pom fringe onto the front of her DIY pillow cover. If sewing isn’t your thing, she suggests trying a fusible bonding product or hot glue. I know this isn’t a holiday pillow, but there is something so festive about the pom-poms that I think it would be a great addition to holiday décor.

Turn a Log Into a Stacked Wood Slice Lamp

As soon as Jessica from Fit and Crafty saw a beautiful stacked base lamp on Pinterest, she was in love! Unfortunately, the link led her straight to a $600 price tag, which was much too pricey for her budget. That just meant a DIY was in order, which wasn’t a problem for Jessica who had tackled lamp sockets in the past. Jessica tracked down some free firewood on Craigslist, sliced up the logs, and turned them into a set of stylish lamps.

This towel is a lovely decorative piece for the kitchen and, like Katie says, “would make luxe gifts to have on hand for the holiday season!”

Carlee of Ladybird Ln had an awkward wall in her kitchen where a chimney had once been. She found a cute utensil hook rack that would be the perfect solution for the space, but it was too pricey and too small. Not a problem for Carlee, who was able to make an even larger hook rack with her own twist for a fraction of the cost. She says, “By finding a fun wrought iron decorative piece and thrift store utensils for mere pennies, I created a one-of-a-kind charming piece that is both functional and decorative. My aprons have never been so happy!”
