Premade Pumpkin arrangement (Wal-Mart)
Glass pillar candle (Dollar Tree)
Glass plate (Dollar Tree)
Small Willow Wreath (Dollar Tree)
E6000 glue (Wal-Mart)
Spray paint (Wal-Mart)
Snippers (Dollar Tree)
Fall florals (Dollar Tree)
Floral Foam (Dollar Tree)

I got the pumpkin arrangement at Wal-Mart and although it's cute the way it is, I wanted to bump its wow factor up a notch and was perfect for this project!

So for this project you're going to take your E6000 glue and glue your taper candle holder to the glass plate and set aside to dry fully.

After your glued base is dry, it's time to paint it with your spray paint; I wanted it to still be translucent so I did a light dusting with the paint. This gave it a colored glass effect.

After the painted base has fully dried it's time to grab your E6000 glue (For long term hold) and glue gun (For immediate hold) and glue your willow wreath to the top of the plate.

Then again with your E6000 glue and glue gun, glue your floral foam to the center of your plate.

Now trim and sort your Fall florals. I pushed all the leaves on each stem towards the top before using my snippers to cut to size.

For the next step I grab my premade pumpkin arrangement and set it on top of the floral foam and added my first row of Fall floral around the base of the pumpkin so I knew where I needed add the rest of my florals.

I then set the premade pumpkin arrangement off to the side and continued working my way around the floral foam adding my Fall florals until I was happy with the look and fullness.

Once I was happy with the look and fullness, I grabbed my E6000 and hot glue gun and glued my premade pumpkin arrangement to the center of my floral foam.

Finally it's time to enjoy your new creation and find it, its new home amongst your Fall decor!!

DIY Fall No Sew Decorative Pillowcases Tutorial

I'm in LOVE with these DIY No Sew Pillows!!
Be sure to watch the how to Video below!

So I have two BIG projects coming up and I was thinking of using canvas dropcloth for them. However, I had never worked with it before. I have also been wanting to make some decorative pillows for the holidays. So I thought, I'll use the canvas drothcloth for my decorative pillows and "kill two birds with one stone". I get my pillows and I get to see what it's like working with the canvas drop cloth! Win, win!! I really love how the pillows turned out and am planning on making some more for Christmas.

You'll need:
Canvas Dropcloth, size depends on how many pillows and projects you want to use it for.
Ink Jet T-Shirt Transfers
Fabric Glue, I used FABRI-TAC
Optional: Velcro if making a deceptive pillow cover.

First we're going to cut out two 16.5" x 16.5" panels from our dropcloth.

Then we're going to create our image and print it out on the T-Shirt Transfer paper. Please follow the instructions included with you transfer paper.

Cut out your image, leaving a small border all the way around the image per transfer instructions.

For the ironing part you need a solid surface that is heat resistant. My current crafting table is plastic and will melt and warp so I grabbed a scrap piece of plywood to protect my table.

Cover your heat resistant surface with a cotton pillowcase and iron out any wrinkles.

Then lay your canvas panels on top of the pillowcase and iron out any wrinkles and creases.

Now we're going to lay our transfer print side down on our freshly ironed canvas panel.

Next, cover the back of the transfer with another cotton pillowcase.

Then Iron transfer per Instructions provided by the manufacturer.

After ironing, let the transfer cool completely before carefully removing the paper backing.

Then flip the canvas panel so that the image is sandwiched in between the two panels.

Now fold up a side and run a continuous strip of fabric glue along the edge of three sides of your canvas panels. Make sure the 4th we're not going to glue just yet is what will be the bottom of your pillow when completed.

Now for what will be the bottom; if you’re making a full pillow like I did, you’re only going to glue the ends of the full opening. Leaving the center (about 5 finger widths apart) unglued. If you are making a decorative pillow cover then you can glue Velcro strips on.

Once the glue is dried per instructions on your glue, you’re going to reach your hand in the unglued opening and turn you pillowcase right side out.

Make sure to really get the corners pushed out. Voila, you're halfway done with your new pillow!

Time to stuff it! Since I'm making a purely decorative pillow that will be in my outside entryway, I have chosen to stuff mine with plastic store bags because I have an abundance of them... Mine as well make use of them for more than just bathroom garbage bags!

Once you've got your pillow all stuffed you can glue the opening closed.

I used two binder clips to hold the opening closed until the glue dried.

Once fully dried, it's time to find its new home in your Fall decor!!
