Dollar Tree DIY | Reversible Rug Pillow

To create this Dollar Tree DIY reversible pillow, you’ll need 2 of these rugs from their home collection.

(If your local Dollar Tree doesn’t carry this particular rug, it can be purchased online.)

This would be a darling throw pillow as is, but we decided to spruce it up a bit with some darling fall and Halloween elements.

We’ve even created a FREE downloadable pattern for you, to take the stress out of making your own! Downloads links can be found below.

Creating A Pumpkin

To create this pumpkin you’ll need some scrap fabric, rope and jute.

Begin by measuring the center of the rug both vertically and horizontally, and mark with a straight pin.

Apply a small piece of rope about 6 inches to the center of the rug with a hot glue gun.

Next, using your free pattern, cut the oval shapes out of the white and tan fabric scraps.

Once cut, go around all the edges and gently pull any loose strings to fray the edges a little.

Secure the white and tan ovals together using a hot glue gun.

Position the ovals where you want, and secure into place with the hot glue gun.

Embellish the Pumpkin Stem

We decided to embellish the pumpkin stem by adding a little piece of curly jute.

To create this tight curl, cut a strip of jute about 12 inches long.

Saturate the jute with water and ring out the excess. Then wrap it around a crochet hook (or any other oven safe item about the size of a pencil.)

Place on a baking sheet and heat for 10 minutes at 350°.

Allow to cool and remove the jute from the hook, and you’ll have this darling curly embellishment.

Adding The Bat Embellishment

Using the the free pattern provided, cut the bat from a scrap of black fabric.

Center the bat on the pillow and secure into place with a hot glue gun.

And finally add some googly eyes with the glue gun.

Dollar Tree DIY | Making The Pillow

To make these 2 rugs into a pillow, place one on top of the other. Make sure all of the tassels on the edges are out from in between the rugs.

Apply hot glue to 3 edges and press firmly into place.

Last, stuff with an old pillow form or polyfil and close pillow by running one last bead of hot glue along the 4th edge.

Optional: Add a running stitch along the top and bottom of edges. This just adds a little extra detail. (The cord was also purchased at Dollar Tree.)

And your Dollar Tree DIY is complete!

How quick and easy was that?!
