Easy DIY Fall Pillow Embellishment and 5-Minute Craft Project

4 Materials
5 Minutes

Add some embellishment and dimension to a pillow cover for fall with this easy 5-minute craft project.

This pillow is 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. All their fall decor was 40% off.

While I love seasonal pillows, storage is problematic in the off season, 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 of the pillow cover together while attaching the sunflowers.

Add your pillow insert and voilà, a 5-minute pillow, embellished with additional sunflowers blooming among the pumpkins!

So quick and easy! I already have another pillow project planned!
