I’ll be showing How to Make a Fall Throw Pillow from drop cloth.
As part of our living room remodel, I made curtains for the windows out of drop cloth. The drop cloth curtains were hanging in our living room for a few months, but I decided to change them out for plain white curtains. I ended up having yards and yards of drop cloth that were no longer going to be used as curtains, so I decided to make some pillows with the fabric.
Here’s my attempt at making an envelope pillow. Keep in mind I’m not an expert seamstress. I used the tutorial here at Love Grows Wild.
I made 2 pillows out of some of the drop cloth, with plenty of fabric leftover. Click here to see the Christmas pillow I made using a tree stencil.
I stenciled my pumpkin design on one of them. When applying the stencil, I put a thick piece of cardboard under the first layer of drop cloth so the paint wouldn’t soak through to the back of the pillow.
I used acrylic paint to stencil on the drop cloth and it works well. If you feel more comfortable using fabric paint, that’s an option too.

I love the warm and vibrant colors of fall! What about you?
