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.

Metallic Leaf Christmas Tree

While browsing the Pottery Barn catalog recently, Joy from Thrifty Parsonage Living came across their beautiful metallic bay leaf trees. Joy was drawn to the silver tree since she’s decorating with silver, blue, and a winter wonderland theme this year.  She was disappointed to find the trees were no longer available, but, in true DIY spirit, decided to make it herself. The shimmery tree cost Joy a whopping $2.50, which has to make her happy they were sold out in the first place!

Decorative Fireplace Screen

Vone at Vone Inspired needed to update her fireplace but couldn’t afford to buy a $200 screen. Since her family doesn’t use the fireplace, Vone decided she could make something that might not be functional but could at least add to the style of the space.  She did just that by building a screened frame and adding real branches and leaves cut from a soda can. When it’s all spray painted, it looks amazingly like an iron fireplace screen!
