Autumn is all the rage, but you still haven’t decorated your front door with a fall wreath? It’s a nice excuse to wow your entire family and friends with a farmhouse wreath made from an ordinary wire form and two rolls of a wired ribbon (or any thick trim).

Ribbon Pillow

Does your bedroom need a facelift? Freshen it up with a ribbon pillow. You’ll need a 10’’x10’’ pillow, 12’’x12’’ piece of fabric for your pillow front, two 8’’x12’’ pieces of fabric for your pillow back, thread, scissors, and assorted ribbons to cover your pillow front (they should be a bit longer than your pillow front). Using a zigzag stitch, sew the ribbons onto the pillow front, making sure that there’re no gaps between the ribbons. Then, finish one side of each piece of the 8”x12” pieces to form a pocket, sew the pillow front and two pieces of the pillow back together, turn your pillow pocket inside out, and pop your pillow in. That’s it!
