EASY NO SEW BURLAP LEAF PILLOW DIY- Add this beautiful fall pillow to your home this season. Such an easy project you don't even have to be crafty to make it!
I’m bringing fall into my living room this season with an easy NO SEW BURLAP LEAF PILLOW!
Fall is my favorite season… I love everything about it! Chilly weather, apples, and pumpkins and of course the falling leaves! Lots and lots of leaves!

Making my NO SEW BURLAP LEAF PILLOW is easier than you think… you start out with a store bought pillow cover. You don’t even have to make the pillow!!!
Here, I’ll show you how…

1 store bought pillow cover (I got mine at the Pottery Barn Outlet)
1 pillow insert (I use down inserts)
burlap in various colors
fusible webbing for heavy duty fabrics ( I used Pellon, Wonder Under)
stitch witchery
leaf patterns

I got my large leaf HERE    Small leaf (copy to Microsoft Word and print)

1. Trace leaves onto the shiny side of fusible webbing. 
2. Cut out leaves, leaving a 1/2 inch or so edge around them.
Put fusible webbing rough side down onto burlap. Iron fusible webbing onto burlap by using a hot iron/ no steam for 8-10 seconds.
Let cool.
3. Cut out leaves
4.Carefully peel off the parchment backing from the leaf. There will be a shiny film of fusible web on the leaf.
5. Arrange the big leaves on the pillow cover in a wreath 
5. Iron the leaves onto the pillow cover according to package directions. 
Arrange the smaller leaves on the wreath and iron the smaller leaves onto the pillow cover according to package directions.
8. Let cool. If any leaves did not stick well, affix them to the pillow cover with stitch witchery, following package instructions.
Put the pillow insert in the pillow.

Wouldn’t this look pretty made with colorful fall fabrics too!If you missed my last NO SEW project NO SEW MONOGRAMMED WOOL THROW

  2. Yvonne,
    Your pillow has always been a favorite project I tried. I made one for a friend a couple of years ago and she loves it. I seriously need to make myself one especially with all the colored burlap nowadays! Thanks for sharing it again and reminding me of it!

  3. I love that pillow! So pretty.

  4. Your pillow is just beautiful! Seriously, it’s just as pretty – no, it’s prettier than anything available in stores to buy!

  5. Awesome pillow! Love how you made it so simply! Thank you for sharing this great project!

  6. Thank you for the no-sew pillow idea. I, too, love fall and go all out decorating. I don’t sew, however, so this is idea is tailor-made for me.

  9. You reallly are the “pillow queen” Yvonne!!!! Another beautiful project- thank you for posting!!!

  10. Love the leaf pillow. This is crazy, but I can’t find an iron that stays hot to use for sewing and especially cotton or linen. All manufacturers seem to have that auto shutoff thing that’s supposed to protect you (them) from fire. I be been through 2 irons already! Any product suggestions?

  11. I love this leaf pillow! I have no sewing skills, so this is great for me! Thanks for sharing!

    I love your no-sew burlap pillow. I just ordered some burlap colored linen slipcovers for my sofas and I think these pillows would look great on them. I’ve pinned it!

  13. Where did you find your burlap fabric?
