Bargain Pillows: Dressed Up for Fall!

Happy Wednesday Friends! On my recent Fall Home Tour, you saw these bargain mini pillows. Today I'm sharing how I made them uniquely mine with a few simple touches...

Upcycle bargain pillows

I started with these adorable mini pillows from Target's bargain bins--$6 for the pair! Cute, but a little generic so I decided to take them up a notch...

For the pumpkin, I added an estate sale brooch at the stem and a few tiny buttons:

The gold polka dot pillow was pretty fabulous on its own but I wanted to fall-ify it, so I added an acorn; borrowed from garland that was also from the bargain bins:

  3. I thought the pumpkin pillow was cute ... but adding the brooch and pearl buttons made it really special. The acorn is just perfect for the polka dot pillow. All look so pretty on your "Rosie".
