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.

Leaf and Acorn Applique Pillow Cover

MJ from 517 Creations spied a lovely autumn pillow with a large, brightly colored leaf and acorns gracing the front. Since the almost $100 price tag completely obliterated any idea of actually purchasing the pillow, MJ simply made her own. MJ stitched a vein detail onto the leaf and then used Heat N’ Bond to attach it to the pillow fabric. She finished it off by stitching around the edges for a lovely fall applique.

Laurie of Laurie Jones Home says it’s no secret that she loves to decorate her front porch. However, when it came time to transition the space to fall, she was coming up dry. Thankfully, Pottery Barn was there to provide inspiration with a pretty autumn porch… that would cost a whopping $1,500 to pull together with Pottery Barn items. Laurie was inspired to create a similar vignette using more budget-friendly items. Laurie’s porch features a colorful fall leaves, a passel of pumpkins, trees with hanging ornaments, and mercury glass owl luminaries.

Brown Paper Pumpkin

Keeping in line with her neutral fall color scheme, Maryann at Domestically Speaking wanted to tone down a bright orange pumpkin she had purchased from a garage sale. She got just the look she was after by decoupaging pieces of brown paper onto the surface. Working with torn pieces of paper makes it easy to cover curves as on Maryann’s pumpkin, and the overlapped edges give a nice textured finish.

Birch Bark Candle

Kim from Sand & Sisal had been on a hunt to find birch bark sheets for a PB-inspired candle. After scouring craft stores, she drove home disappointed and discouraged… that is until she spied a pile of downed birch trees right by her house! Kim peeled some bark off the trees and scurried home to make this lovely candle. In all honestly, I would take Kim’s candle over Pottery Barn’s in a heartbeat. Why settle for painted when you can have the real deal? Just look at all that natural texture!
