The easiest way I like to decorate for any season is with pillows. I usually buy a pillow cover and decorate it, because its more economical than buying the whole pillow. And lets face it. Pillows are not cheap. I recently made a really easy DIY fall pillow I would like to share with you.
This pillow was so easy to make using the transfer paper, you won’t believe it.
What you will need to make this pillow:
- 18 x 18″ pillow insert (if you don’t already have one)
- 18 x 18 ” Pillow cover
- T-Shirt Transfer Paper
- Jet Ink Printer
Got a few minutes, lets make a pillow.
First, download the 2 PDF files from these links Words and Flowers. Then print out the PDF files on to your transfer paper, you will need 2 sheets. You must use an ink jet printer and I used the photo setting on my printer for a more colorful printout. Be sure to read the transfer paper instructions on how long to iron and what settings you need for our iron to be set on.
Next, cut around the graphics. You don’t have to be exact because when its ironed on, whats not been cut off is clear and doesn’t show. Lay out and center it up how you want it to be on the pillow case.
I first ironed the words and then laid out the flower edges on each side. Be careful with the iron and don’t touch any part of the words while ironing the side flowers.
When you are done ironing, you wait for a few minutes and then start peeling off the backing paper. It comes off very nicely. If the transfer starts coming up, then you will need to iron a bit longer. I didn’t have that problem at all.
It turned out so nicely and I was done in less than an hour. You could use so many graphics for fall to print out. One place I love to get graphics from is Creative Market. Just click on the link and put fall or autumn in the Search Bar to see all their adorable graphics.
I have another easy DIY pillow you can make for the fall season.
Lets talk pillows for a bit.
