Cute Fall Pillow From a Thrift Store Shirt

This thrift store flannel shirt turned out to be great investment! I think I paid around $2 for it. It was part of a scarecrow Halloween costume last year and now it’s been repurposed into 4 easy fall crafts. I'm going to show you how to make my favorite- an easy DIY fall acorn pillow!
Materials Needed:
-Plain pillow cover
-Flannel fabric
-Aff link- Heat n Bond Sheet
-Additional fabric (I used burlap)
-Acorn template
You will need to start with a plain pillow cover. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby. It was $9.99 and I used my 40% off coupon. I found a pattern for the acorn by searching Google images.
First, cut your flannel fabric and your additional fabric (that will be used for the bottom of the acorn) to the approximate size that will be needed. Cut the Heat n Bond in the same way and follow the instructions to iron the sheet to the back side of your fabric pieces.
I was so excited to find the Heat n Bond in a full sheet instead of just the strips. This stuff was so easy to work with and you can turn any fabric into an iron on with this!!
Now use your template to trace and cut out the exact shape of your acorn (top, bottom and stem).
Peel off the backing from each piece and iron onto your pillow cover.
Add a pillow insert and you’re done!
You can see more projects using the flannel fabric on the blog!
