While I love decorative seasonal pillows, storing them on the off-season can be a challenge . . .

pillow covers to the rescue! They can be stored flat and they’re also affordable!

this single ‘Hello Fall’ pillow cover.

This Pumpkin Patch Farm Pillow had lots of appeal, reminding me of trucking to the pumpkin patch . .

Embellishing a pillow to add some dimension and put your personal stamp on it is super easy!

You can embellish as much or as little as desired.

I shared the easy how-to for an early fall pillow project, but if you missed it,

here are the easy steps and tips.

I purchased some fall floral picks that were 40% off at Michaels . . .

some burnt orange sunflowers and fall leaf picks. The flowers should pull right off of the stems,

if not cut them off along with any leaves you want to use.

I cut the back of the flower stem so it would sit flat and be easier to glue.

I also had some cheery yellow sunflowers left over from my previous pillow project.

I used a hot glue gun to attach my materials.

Glue your materials to your pillow cover after arranging them where you like them best.

Note: Be sure to use a silicone heat resistant mat, placing it inside the pillow cover,

so you don’t accidentally glue the top and bottom of the cover together

while attaching your embellishments.

I decided to add some black and white check ribbon to the pillow that I had in my stash.

To keep the cut ends of the ribbon from fraying,

I used Fray Check, a clear liquid seam sealant to secure the thread ends.

Follow the manufacturer’s directions, using in a well ventilated area,

 testing on a scrap piece of ribbon first.

 Apply to cut end of ribbon to prevent from fraying and allow to dry 15 -30 minutes.

 I cut a couple green leaves from the orange sunflower picks to make smaller leaves.

Attach your materials, add your pillow insert and . . . ta-da. . .

an embellished pillow cover!

    Really cute, Mary. I love a dimensional pillow, it really ups the quality of an inexpensive cover.

  3. September 23, 2021 at 8:17 am

    I had a good laugh over the expired driver’s licence. These are SO creative Mary! I love all your embellishments for Fall and I’m going to remember your tip to use the Fray Check!

    Your pillow creations are adorable Mary, and you had me at black and white checks! So easy and so cute, and I’ve not heard of Fray Check, that looks like handy stuff! I have serious pumpkin and flower envy, you have so many wonderful fall vignettes in your posts, and the pillows look so cute with them. I am going to our pumpkin patch Saturday with my son and grandsons so they can carry lots of heavy pumpkins home for me!

    Mary, I love the embellishments. It becomes a one of a kind pillow…an easy DIY that I can do ☺️ Happy Thursday ♥️

    Mary, your embellished pillows couldn’t be cuter! What a fun way to elevate seasonal pillows! Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    I love these pillows. Absolutely going to give them a try. Also, the Buffalo Plaid pumpkins. You are my inspiration.

  13. September 23, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    Cutest idea, Mary. Pillow covers are a necessity. You’ve made these pillow covers extra special. Friends will love them.

    I think I may send a Christmas pillow to a friend using these techniques. Our fall only lasts about 15 minutes and I think we had it this morning. Love the succulent pumpkins. May make those for neighbors. By the way, my dogs loved the sweet potato treats you suggested in an earlier post.

    I love a quick embellishment to an affordable pillow cover to make it look luxe.

    That skele’s license may be expired, but his spirit is forever (and he probably drives better than most folks on the road)!

  16. September 23, 2021 at 4:38 pm

    Amazing Mary! Absolutely Amazing! I may purchase that set of 4 for our back patio in AZ.
    Thanks for sharing these fabulous tips!

  17. September 23, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    They turned out cute Mary! Lovin’ that squatty multi-colored pumpkin too:@)

  18. September 23, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    What great dimension those glued on flowers, leaves and ribbons add, Mary! I love this project. Thank you for sharing with us.

  19. September 23, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    This is a great way to add dimension to pillows. I like how it can be done in an hour or less, but adds so much to the look of the pillow cover.

  20. September 24, 2021 at 9:28 am

    Very cute, love the 3d addition! The truck pillow is my fave 😊 we are still 95 degrees, just can’t come to feeling fall yet, but I hope I find time soon, we lose our water oct 15th, I feel like my whole world will halt and simpler times will prevail!

  21. September 24, 2021 at 10:05 am

    Sooo cute!!

    I love this idea; I may have to revisit my flamingo pillows next spring and add a piece of pink boa to them!
