Crafts & How Tos

How to make cute fall porch pillows ( for those of us who can’t sew!) :)


final product ( no one will ever know your secret ;)


In my spare time I make crafts and one of the questions people ask me all the time is ” do you sew?” and they are surprised when I tell them no. I guess most people just assume crafts and sewing go hand in hand, but trust me, there are ways around it. Today I am going to show you how to make cute seasonal porch pillows without whipping out a sewing machine.

What you will need:
material of your choice ( the amount depends on the size of your pillow, so take it with you when picking out material)
old pillows ( you can find them cheap at goodwill and yard sales)
1 pack of safety pins ( you want them to be medium to large in size )

** I decided to use flannel shirts on my pillows instead of material, making them a little more “messy” than usual in the back.

What to do:

1.) Cut the material to size. Make sure your material overlaps some so you have enough to cover the entire back of the pillow.

2.) wrap the pillow ~ When you are making these think presents.. You want to wrap the pillow like you would a present and place a pin everywhere you would normally place a piece of tape.

3.) Pin the pillow. Secure pins where the ends overlap and also pin any loose material, making the front of your pillow looking neat and tight.
