Looking for an easy, useful, and fun weekend project? Look no further! Accent pillows are the chicest Â way to add a punchy pop of color to any room. Pillows are also completely personalizable, from the shape to the pattern to the color to where you place them. And once youâ€™ve got the perfect size picked out, you can jazz it up any way youâ€™d like with your favorite decorative fabrics, embellishments, and accents! Hereâ€™s a cozy, warm design you can easily recreate at home. We canâ€™t wait to get comfy on the couch with a cup of tea and these seasonal-inspired accent pillows!
Letâ€™s get DIYing!
What youâ€™ll need:
-Brown, Cream, and Red fabric.
-Needle + Brown thread
-Store-bought accent pillow, size of your choice
STEP 1: Â Trace the template below onto the accent fabric using a high-quality fabric marker.
Â (You can re-size the leaf on your computer to best suit your pillowâ€™s size.) Weâ€™d recommend eight to ten leaves to sew onto the corner of your pillow, but feel free to add as many-or as few- as youâ€™d like.
STEP 2: Starting from the corner of the pillow, begin sewing tight, simple stitches in branch-like lines diagonally down the surface.
STEP 3: Sew leaves at random intervals at the end of your sewn branches. Make sure to sew differently colored leaves at the end of each branch to prevent uniformity.
STEP 4: Double stitch down the center of the leaf to ensure they wonâ€™t fall off. If youâ€™d like, sew additional â€œveinsâ€ from the center â€œstemsâ€ of the leaf for a quirky touch.
Enjoy your super-cozy Fall themed accent pillow!
