Here is an easy Halloween/Fall Burlap Pumpkin pillows project. All it takes is some burlap, a little bit of paint, and a hot glue gun. No sewing is necessary.
My friend and neighbor, Janet, made pumpkin pillows a couple of years ago. They were adorable. Since I had extra burlap on hand, I decided my front porch could use some Fall pumpkin pillows too. I already had everything on hand. A “free” project is always an added bonus. 😉
I forgot to take pictures when I was working on the pumpkin face. I drew a face on the burlap with a marker and filled it in with black paint. You could use a black sharpie to make the face too. Regardless, please make sure you have newspaper underneath the burlap or you will have a mess on your hands. I let the painted burlap dry over night.
Instead of cutting out two squares, one for the front, and one for the back, I folded over a long piece of burlap. This way you only have three sides to glue together. I did not plan on sewing these pillows, but you certainly can. I took the lazier route and used a glue gun.
Before gluing the bottom of the pillow together, I stuffed an old pillow in it. You could use fiber fill to stuff the pillow if you don’t have old pillows lying around.
Here are my happy pumpkin pillows. Besides the drying time, this project took only an hour to do. Very simple.
