Make a Pottery Barn Pillow Knock-off Pumpkin pillow painted with ilovetcreate fabric paint and pillow cover with a Poly-fil pillow insert DIY and save money.  I love Pottery Barn and I love their style.  I have quite a few pieces from them in my home.    But there are many things that I can make for myself that are inspired by them.  This painted pillow was one of them.

I found my inspiration for the pumpkin pillow on a post by my friend Keri Lee.  She added a little challenge at the end of the post so I decided to take her up on this one.  Especially since I keep fabric paint on  hand in my craft room.  Fabric painting is something I like to do to enhance my fabric projects.  I just opened a new set and snapped a picture so you could see the packing.  I also picked up a half dozen of the pillow covers at Michael’s a  few weeks ago when they were 60% off.  The most I paid was $2.67.  I thought I could dec orate them for every season and reuse my pillow insert for them and it would take up a lot less room.  I can swap out the pillow covers to suite my mood.  Also if you like the vase, I will have a tutorial on that tomorrow.

I went back and added highlights to the painting.  If you like how the pillow turned out let me know.  I think it looks similar to the inspiration piece.  Colors are not exactly the same but I still like it.
