DIY Fall Decor Pillow Wrap

My favorite time of the year is almost here, hooray for Fall!! The stores are stocked full of Autumn decor and Halloween goodies. Bring on the leaves and pine cones, I say!

This months Silhouette Challenge is Home Decor and I have an easy way, using the pillows you already own to spruce up your home for Fall. Pillow Wraps!! I came across pillow wraps online and I instantly thought about all the endless ways to decorate your pillows using these cute wraps. Holidays, seasons or just updating your decor.

Have you bought a decorative pillow lately? If so, then you know how pricey a great pillow can be. Anywhere from $20 to $50 for a bunch of stuffed fluff. So, I am all for this inexpensive way to change up your pillows and add pop to your decor.

After you read how to make my Pillow Wraps check out more of my fellow challengers Home Decor projects shown below.

And remember even if you do not own a die cutting machine, you can still make these cute wraps by cutting out your own lettering from felt or stenciling the sayings onto burlap or another fabric. Let me show you how it’s done~

DIY Fall Decor Pillow Wrap


  • Silhouette CAMEO or other die cutting machine
  • 2 9×12 sheets of black felt,
  • 1 sheet brown mix felt, Creatology brand Michaels, Copper Canyon
  • 1/4 yard faux leather suede material
  • Sharp fabric scissors
  • Fabric glue
  • 1 yard of burlap
  • Upholstery Needle
  • 15 inches of gray yarn


Trim fabric before cutting with silhouette

Cut the faux suede into 9×12 sections and add to your Silhouette cutting mat. I found cutting fabric with your Silhouette works best on a new cutting mat so the fabric will adhere tightly to the sticky part of the mat. You do not want the fabric to move when cutting.

Cut Fabric with Silhouette Cameo

I modified the setting a bit for the faux suede material. My material had a type of netting on the backside of the fabric making it harder to cut, a double cut would have torn the fabric, so I made my blade larger. Set your Silhouette settings to Fabric (Canvas) and then manually change the blade size to a 10. Open the Silhouette Studio and set up words to be cut out.

The fonts I used are:

DK Innuendo 

  • FALL  font size 500 and equals around 6.5 inches tall.
  • LOVE font size 440 and equals around 5.75 inches tall.

Great Vibes is the font for the word “in” font size 288 and is around 2 inches tall.

FREE Printable Leaf cutting Guide

As a fun gift, I provided two FREE Printable leaf cutting guides below.

Cut out the leaf with sharp scissors. Use the paper leaf as a guide to cut out a leaf in brown felt.

Make a 3D Felt Leaf

To give the leaf a three-dimensional look, thread the large needle with yarn. Fold the felt leaf in half and stitch 2-3 stitches of yarn to pinch it together, cut and tie off.

DIY Pillow Wrap

Glue the letters and leaves to the felt sheet. Cut two 35 inches long and 6-7 inches wide strips of burlap. Glue a sheet of black felt to the center of the burlap strip.

Adhesive Tips: I used fabric glue sticks in a hot glue gun for adhering the burlap to the felt and also for the leaves. I used liquid fabric glue, applied with a paintbrush to adhere the letters to the felt.

Wrap the wrap around your pillow and pin the ends together with a safety pin. If you really want to to get fancy or your pillow will be in a high traffic area, you could glue a strip of velcro to the ends of the burlap to make it more secure. Doing this will allow the wrap to stay in place on the pillow. My pillows are in an unused living room so safety pins work nicely for me!

  12. Lisa Ehrman says:

    These pillows are so great! Thanks for sharing them on the Link Party! I’d love for you to share them at Together on Tuesdays, too :)

  13. Kim, your pillow wraps are so cute and this is such a clever idea! I love to switch up my pillows throughout the year and using wraps would be so easy :)

  14. Oh my goodness Kim, these are wonderful!! First of all, I’ve never heard of/thought of pillow “wraps” before – what a great idea for seasonal pillow decor. Second of all, your design for these fall pillows is just amazing!! I love the textures and the colors, and those “3D” felt leaves are a perfect extra touch. Thanks for the inspiration! Pinning for sure!!

    1. Thanks so much! I would actually of used a different fabric that would cut out a little easier. My first choice was felt, but after trying several different methods it just wouldn’t cut all the way through. My blade wasn’t that old either. I hope Silhouette comes out with a much easier way to cut fabric, then the possibilities would really be endless! Thanks of stopping by!

  15. A pillow WRAP? OMG, Kim, what a brilliant way to change out pillow decor! I’ve never heard of it before…you may have unleashed a monster here. LOL :^) Love the word play, and I’ll be stashing away your 3D leaf trick. Thanks!

    1. I found them on an embroidery site and thought how easy it would be to use a Silhouette instead! I agree the possibilities are endless!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  16. This is PERFECT timing. I am looking at staging my house for showing so this would be great for having themed decor without it getting out of hand.

  17. Those pillows look so lovely! Such a great way to celebrate the next season, if it ever gets here heh
