3 Simple & Budget-Friendly DIY Fall Pillow Covers

It's time to get into the festive spirit with some simple DIY projects that will transform your home into a cozy autumn wonderland. In this roundup, we bring you three simple and cost-effective DIY fall pillow cover ideas that will add a touch of seasonal flair to your living spaces.

1. DIY Halloween fall cushion covers

The project by Chas' Crazy Creations involves creating two fall and Halloween throw pillows using materials from Dollar Store and IKEA.

The first pillow is transformed into a ghost by adding large googly eyes and cutting and gluing strips of fabric from a tank top to create a "boo" effect.

The second pillow is turned into a pumpkin by using adhesive cork or adhesive felt to create the surface texture and adding a stem using foam felt. A napkin ring is used as an embellishment, and a jack-o'-lantern face is added using a stencil and adhesive felt.

This fall/ Halloween project offers simple and easy DIY ideas for themed pillow designs that can be interchanged to suit your home decor preferences and removed at the end of the season.

In this DIY project, Melanie shows us how to create outdoor fall cushions by repurposing dollar-store tote bags. She purchased owl-themed canvas tote bags from the Dollar store and decided to transform them into cushions suitable for outdoor use during the fall season.

The process involved removing the tote straps, filling the totes with packing peanuts for durability against fall weather, and finally placing the cushions in chairs as outdoor fall decor. This project is a quick, easy, and cost-effective way to spruce up your home for fall.

DIY placemat pillow cover for fall

3. DIY placemat pillow covers

This next project by Sun's Arts involves creating a simple and easy fall pillow using items from Dollar Tree. The materials needed are a fall-themed placemat, a plain black and white checkered cotton placemat, hot glue, a pillow or polyfill, cotton yarn, and wooden beads.

The process begins by gluing the two placemats together, leaving one side open. Then, a pillow is inserted through the opening and the open side is closed with hot glue. To enhance the pillow, tassels, and wooden beads are added to the corners. The tassels are made from cotton yarn and wooden beads are threaded onto them.

The finished fall pillow is a beautiful addition to your home decor, especially in a Farmhouse style, and looks store-bought despite its simplicity and use of affordable Dollar Tree items.
