One of my favourite pumpkin easy DIY projects. Hopping with Team Creative Crafts, link on Home Page. Sharing everything PUMPKIN!

Are you like me and decorate for every season and holiday?  How about these DIY Fast and Easy Pumpkin Pillows. You can decorate both sides and then just flip them over for a different season or holiday! The best part you can use pillow forms and purchased pillow covers. Just decorate with felt appliques. (This post is sponsored by Fairfield World but designs and comments are my own.)

I am a big fan of Buffalo Plaid and with a red and white house with black accents it is the perfect choice for my front porch and chairs. Inexpensive pillow covers come in a variety of patterns, these buffalo plaid ones were found on Amazon. 

You will need:
Pillow covers 
Fairfield World Pillow Inserts 
9" x 12" Craft Cuts of Kunin Classic Felt: 3 Orange
Pumpkin Die and Die Cut machine. (Or simple paper pattern like these from 
Hook and loop sticky back fasteners
Embroidery floss, black
Dimensional fabric paint, black
Embroidery Letters 
Scissors, pencil, embroidery needle


Step 1:

Hand sew a simple running stitch as shown around the edge of each pumpkin shape. 

Step 2:

Using the photo as a guide, draw a pumpkin face with a pencil. Fill in with dimensional fabric paint. 

Step 3:

Add BOO applique letters to pillow, these letters have a sticky backing and can be easily removed. Pumpkins can be adhered with hook and loop fasteners on the pillow to be removed to add another seasonal design.  

By creating a couple sets of pumpkins you can vary them to add plain pumpkins for a fall look to a pilow or pillows and simply create a Halloween vibe by adding letters to the pumpkins. The piilow covers can be decorated on both sides, making it super easy to just flip over from fall to Halloween or any holiday!

These pillows are perfect for fall decor! 

Easily add another season to the reverse side of the pillows. This set of pillow covers had four in it. Decorating for all the seasons! Find the pattern for this cute Holiday truck here. 

Seasonal and holiday decorating can be achieved easily with just a few touches and pillows are one of the best ways to create the feel. Being able to repurpose and item from one season into another even better! These seasonal pillows can be used all year round. The pillow inserts from Fairfield world are a high quality and durable, they will last through many, many seasons. 

Thanks for visiting!
Creatively yours,
