Happy Thursday!

I have a quick DIY and 5-minute craft project with fall around the corner!

I found this pillow cover while shopping at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago.

While I love seasonal pillows, storage is problematic,

so changeable pillow covers are an ideal solution as they store flat

and bonus, they’re also more affordable!

This ‘Truck with Pumpkins Pillow Cover’ had pumpkins and sunflowers on it which was part of its appeal.

I picked up some small sunflower floral accents at Hobby Lobby and Michaels

to add some three-dimensional sunflower details to the pillow.

I started by ironing the pillow cover to remove the creases, then arranged the sunflowers

until I had them where I wanted. The smaller sunflowers were stickers and were flat on the back.

The larger ones had a wire that I snipped off before attaching.

To attach the sunflowers I used a hot glue gun.

Note: You’ll want to use a silicone heat resistant mat, placing it inside the cover, so

 you don’t accidentally glue the top and bottom together while attaching the sunflowers.

Add your pillow insert and voilà, a 5-minute pillow, embellished

with additional sunflowers blooming among the pumpkins!

Sunflowers convey warmth and symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. . .

And are perfect flower to transition from summer to

 fall with their sunny yellow rays and warm brown centers.

    I love the acorns. I always gather in the fall and put in a container but now… I think I might try to paint some as well as make the cloth ones. I would not have thought to put my little glue gun mat in the pillow cover and glued my pillow together so thank you for the tip! I too love the interchangeable pillow covers as I go crazy changing my pillows on a whim. As always your ideas are great! Peace

    • August 27, 2021 at 10:07 am

      The little acorns are fun and easy to make Cindi! Thank you for your visit and comment ❤️

    Mary, your pillow is darling and I adore your centerpiece! I’ll be using lots of sunflowers from my garden in my fall decor this year. It’s a pleasure to hop with you again! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

      Thank you Cecilia! Loved your pretty pumpkin wreath. ❤️

    What a great idea to add embellishments to our pillows! And the tip to put a mat inside the pillow cover was smart… you know what I would have done, right?
    Loved the acorns tooooooo!
    Thank you for another inspirational post dear friend!

    Your pillow looks so cool, Mary! I love 3D crafts and this is such a pretty way to enhance a pillow cover! What a great idea!

      Thanks Gail, happy to hop with you! 🌻❤️

    What a great idea Mary; I’ve never really given much thought to storing flat pillow cases to switch up our decor before now but I really love that!

    • August 27, 2021 at 10:36 am

      Thanks for hosting Sara! Happy Weekend ❤️

    How cute Mary! So smart to use a silicone mat to keep from gluing the pillow together. I have closets overflowing with pillows, so pillow covers are so handy. I have gone sunflower crazy for my early fall decor this year, I just adore them! The yellow sunflowers really pop against the black and white truck on your pillow, adorable!

    • August 27, 2021 at 10:38 am

      Thank you Jenna, Happy Weekend! 🌻❤️

    Such a cute pillow project, Mary. Sunflowers are my transitional decor in August and September. They’re so cheerful and happy! 🌻 🌻🌻

      Thank Kitty, sunflowers are perfect to bridge the gap from summer to fall. 🌻Thoughts and prayers for Connor’s safety after the Kabul airport attack. ❤️

    Too cute! I like the bright yellow flowers adding that pop of color to the pillow. Yes, it is smart to buy covers and a space saver, too.
    I need to remember that as I do enjoy decorating with seasonal pillows. Your acorns are pretty cute as well. As always, I am enjoying our summer and having fun “jumping the waves” at our local beaches, so no, I am not ready for fall yet, even though I love that season also. Our summers take so long to get here, I squeeze every bit of sunshine, summer fun, beach time, hunting for beach glass and pretty rocks, concerts in the park and picnics I can to fill up my “joy tank” to prepare for the long winter. However, as our days get shorter, the nights cooler and bonfire weather sets in, I get excited about the burst of autumn colors that fill our trees. I’ll get into it when the pumpkins start showing up, but not just yet, there are more waves to jump, hehe. 🌊🌞🐚🏖

    • August 27, 2021 at 10:51 am

      So glad you’re enjoying the last of summer and having some beach time Cyndi! You feel about summer the way I do about fall. It’s still in the 90s in September and late to arrive here! Enjoy those waves. 🌊 ❤️🌞

  10. August 27, 2021 at 8:35 am

    THANK YOU!! I seen those at HL but thought if I bring home one more pillow, OF ANY KIND, but will be going back to see if they have more! Again, thank you!

    • August 27, 2021 at 10:53 am

      Hi Ellen, I know what you mean. 😀Thanks for your visit, Happy Weekend 🌻❤️

  11. August 27, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Mary, I love the embellished pillow. This is a quick and easy project that turns out so beautiful. Stay cool, really hot and humid here!

    • August 27, 2021 at 10:56 am

      Thank you Pam! 🌻It’s sweltering here and next week too. Stay cool if you can. ❤️

  12. August 27, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Very cute and love your pumpkins! If only a cold fall could come rushing in…

    • August 27, 2021 at 11:07 am

      Thanks, yes fall can’t get here quick enough for me! We’re in the triple digits with the heat index from the humidity this week and next. I can’t imagine how you survived that kind of heat since May, ❤️

      Thank you Kathy! It’s super easy for sure 😀🌻❤️

    Beautiful, Mary! You have wonderful ideas that are easy enough for someone like me who isn’t crafty and doesn’t have a lot of time. I’d say this is an “entry-level craft” which is just my speed. Thank you for the great idea!
