You can find plain pillow covers and pillow forms at Hobby Lobby, or Walmart. They are less expensive than buying pre-made decorative throw pillows. Keep an eye out at thrift stores for pillows. If it’s not the color you need, or is not in the best shape, you may be able to cover it with a pillow cover. See how I gave a thrift store pillow a makeover HERE.
 

HOW TO MAKE a pumpkin pillow 

Start by placing the Dollar Tree pumpkin on top of any patterned fabric. Use your fabric scissors to cut out the pumpkin shape. You want to cut a few inches extra around the pumpkin. The pretty fabric will show through the cut-outs of the pumpkin for a nice contrast.

Ok, now back to the project! Hot glue the pumpkin onto the plaid fabric. Be sure to center it so there is an even amount of the plaid fabric showing. It doesn’t have to be exact, but you definitely want some of the fabric to show all the way around the pumpkin.

Now you want to hot glue the plaid fabric with the pumpkin to the center of the pillow cover. You can also use fabric glue if you like. I also cut out a pointed oval shape to glue to the center of the pumpkin. This gave it extra dimension.

finally…

Add a bit of interest to the pumpkin by using a Sharpie to create highlights on the curves of the pumpkin and leaves. This is optional, but can make the pumpkin really pop!

All that’s left is to place your pillow form inside the pillow cover and you are ready to decorate with your beautiful new pillow! You could make two of these pretty pillows to place on each end of your sofa, or just use one as an accent pillow.

WAYS TO CLEAN A PILLOW THAT CANNOT BE WASHED

This pillow is simply decorative, so it can’t be washed. Here are a few tips for keeping it fresh.

  • Spray it down with a disinfectant spray and then a fabric freshener like Febreze and simply set it out to “air” out in the sun.
  • Sprinkle baking soda on the pillow, wait 30 minutes and then vacuum it lightly with a vaccuum attachment after 30 minutes to help remove odors.
  • Spray a light layer of vinegar over the pillow; then wipe it down with a mild dish soap solution. Clean spots by wiping them with rubbing alcohol using a cotton swab.
