make an easy fall leaf pillow

One of the quickest ways to add a little seasonal cheer to a room is with throw pillows. They are easy to make, inexpensive, and often an be whipped up in a matter of minutes! Such is the case with this leaf pillow by Amy at Positively Splendid. Using a large felt leaf decoration from the dollar store, she created a simple pillow that has a nifty secret: an envelope-style back! This means that if you use a pillow form to fill it, you can remove the covering much like a sham and replace it with a different cover when the seasons change. This way, you can store a whole collection of pillows to display throughout the year in very minimal space! [how to make a fall leaf throw pillow]
