Burlap Outdoor Pillow

Burlap Outdoor Pillow

We’ve got about 10 days until Halloween, and in the midst of sewing up costumes for the kids (my last of three is coming up tomorrow) I still like to make a couple of new decorations for the house.

I’ve seen these ’31’ pillows around town a couple of times, I love them, and decided that my red bench outside nestled in with pumpkins and ghosts is really an eye-sore.  It’s not going anywhere, but I thought I’d add a little black to the bench with an outdoor throw pillow.  I had left-over black burlap from my {banner}, of course I had some white paint, so I cut out a 31 with my Cricut (using the Black Letter font) and made a quick envelope pillow using {this method…only I cut about a 15″ square for the pillow}

And then instead of using a pillow form for outside, I just stuffed it full of plastic grocery bags.  That way, if it gets wet, it’s Ok…and when Halloween has come and gone, I can reuse my bags, and store my pillow flat.
see you tomorrow!
