Burlap Pillow For The Fall

Fall is a great time of year for me. It reminds me of the leaves turning and crisp cool weather. Aww, how I miss living up north. Another reason why I love fall is because of the warm colors like yellow's, browns, gold, bronze and reds. Those colors make me happy! 

Fall and Spring are truly my two favorite seasons and when I can change everything from summer to fall I am in heaven. One of the ways I love to change things up is by adding burlap to some of my fall decor. So today I am sharing with you one of my easiest and super cute fall pillow. Throw pillows are a great thing to add to a sofa, chairs or bed and you don't have to pay a lot of money to do so. 

Here are the supplies you are going to need: 
  • Burlap fabric (2 different colors of burlap)
  • Or you can purchase a burlap bag like I did
  • Pillow insert or any stuffing you may have on hand
  • Stencil or freehand
  • Scissors
  • Fabric glue
  • Ribbon or Burlap twine 
  • Burlap flower (either one you make or store bought
  • Gold sharpie pen

1. Cut your color fabric 9 x 9 inches. Next free hand or you can use a stencil but write out the words "Always give thanks" using your Sharpie gold pen. 

2. Once you have finished the writing. Glue the color fabric piece to the center of the burlap bag. Next insert your pillow form or stuffing in the burlap bag and tie off with twine or ribbon. 

3. Finally glue your fabric burlap flower and you are done. 

Didn't I tell you this was an easy project? This is a great gift to give to teachers, family or friends. Thank you for stopping by and you can also stay in touch on my other social media sites.

Kirkland Knockoff Fall Home Decor

Welcome to the First day of "Fall in Love with Your Home". This is a blog tour that is filled with recipes, crafts projects, fall home decor, vignette decor and much more. This is a fun fill tour and with 30 bloggers participating, you are sure to be inspired. I love easy and simple fall decor that can be used up to Thanksgiving. Let's face it, who has hours upon end to redecorate for fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving. Its a lot of work that's for sure. I am going to show you an easy project you can add to your home and can be used till Thanksgiving.

Supplies needed:

Tin cans of any size
Burlap ribbon (different sizes and/or color)
Buttons, gems etc
Hot glue gun

I was browsing through Kirkland's web site and I thought, I could make this myself with faux flowers. We all have tin cans in our home and I love the ides of using this for tablescape, bathrooms and really just about anywhere in your home.  I love how so many companies are using tin cans and marking them up so much! We can make a set of three for a total of two dollars. This is Kirkland's tin can flower arrangement for $7. 

As you can see, all you need is some supplies. This is an easy project and you will never buy another tin can flower arrangement again. 
Take your burlap ribbon and add hot glue to the backside of the ribbon and place it on the can. Wrap the burlap ribbon around the can and along the way, add a dot of hot glue to keep the ribbon in place. Once you are done with the burlap ribbon, you can either leave it like that or add lace trim, button, gem any embellishment you have around the house. How about an old pair of earrings or brooch!

Have you seen my burlap fall pillow? This is another easy project as well. 

I told you this was an easy project and I love how you can use these to hold flowers or fill with sand and add candles. Great for indoor or outdoor use as well. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to visit my other blogger friends.
