“Happy Fall Y’all”

A favorite saying over here. ;)

Hello sweet friends!
It’s that time.
Time to talk about FALL decor … and how better to start than with some cute little DIY Fall Pillows??
If you are like me, you are not quite ready for it. I would love Summer to stay around for a bit longer.
I do enjoy the crisp cool weather, bonfires, scarves, boots, football, etc., that fall brings.
I don’t, however, like at all the short days, darkness AND winter.

Ah well, I guess it will come anyway. I suppose it can be cozy at times. ;)

Alrighty, let’s get on with this oh-so-simple little project.
You guys can make all kinds of cute pillows for your decor.

Or are you used to saying “autumn”.

“Hello Autumn”

I’m not but I know others in different parts of the country are.

Did I mention how simple these were to make?
They were. I made them in no time.

And thriftily. 
Since I’m a pillow hoarder, I actually had two cream colored pillows that fit into these perfectly.
Instead of buying new pillow forms, I just slipped those right into these covers.

Here’s what I used to make these DIY Fall Pillows:

Yep, that’s it!

Design your graphic OR you can download these FREE printables I created for you here…

Slowly lift the paper and voila!
Pretty, new DIY fall pillows created by you for your fall decor.

The first photos are of them on my porch in the rockers and the DIY headboard bench I made.

I thought I’d share them inside too.
This one is on my French Script Bench.

And the first one I made…..

…which I ended up not loving.
I used an existing photo I took and cropped out all of the background.
But, once ironed on, yea, not so loving it.
I already had the “Happy Fall Y’all” created but then decided to add the “Hello Autumn” after this one became a big, fat FAIL. ;)

And there you have it! Easy, peasy project for fall.
I love that you can use these printables to make all kinds of things.
Hand towels, pillows, framed prints, signs, etc.
I hope you enjoy them! :)

  1. I love this project, Nancy! I actually bought transfer paper after you shared naughty or nice Christmas stockings and have yet to use it. Gosh, was that last year or the year before?? Anyway, I need some new fall decor and this will be an easy way to make some.

    1. Thanks Paula! :) OH gosh, that was a couple years ago! ;) Do a little test with that paper before you use it on a big project if you’ve had it that long. I tried to use some I had for a couple years and it didn’t work as well.
      These were so easy though!!

  2. Hi Nancy, as soon as saw your pretty pillows I gad to stop over and see how you made them. So smart and I love your graphics! We say fall here even though we don’t really get one! I don’t like the shorter days but am looking forward to cooler temps! It still feels like blazing summer here! Pinned this pretty project!

    1. Hey Wendi! :) Thank you! Yes, my daughter lives in West Palm Beach now and is wishing for a bit of Fall!! I told her she may get a touch of Fall in the coming months (in the evenings only though, it seems!;)) Thanks for the pin!!

  3. Love the pillow transfers Nancy! You certainly show how easy it can be! And thanks for the downloads!
    I couldn’t really tell the difference in the two benches until I clicked on their links. I’m wondering if I can put a backward-leaning slant on my headboard to make it more comfortable like the pre-made bench you painted. It will certainly challenge me (and my husband, who is bound to get roped into it)! I guess I’ll need to see how the headboard is constructed before assembling it as a bench.

    1. Thanks, Gwen!! And haha, had to laugh at the “roped in” comment!! That was/is definitely my husband, always! Yes, I am sure there is a way you could accomplish that. Your handyman can work that out! ;) Good luck and have fun! xoxo

    1. Yep! I just turn them inside out and let them hang to dry. Very low iron if needed after (being careful to avoid the transferred area). :) xo

  4. Hi Nancy,
    Your fall pillows came out fantastic! I just love them! Thank you for listing your sources too!!! Have a great weekend.
