  2. Place the pillow in between the burlap to measure where the fold will be.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Remove the pillow form while holding firmly to one side to keep the burlap positioned correctly.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Tuck the right and left sides of the pillow (the same side that you cut) in about 1-2" and press down to crease the burlap.

  5. Insert the warmed glue gun into the tuck and apply an ample amount of glue to seal the tuck closed. Press down gently for a firm seal.

  6. Trace and transfer the patterns to vinyl sheets and cut out. Apply the vinyl stencils to the pillows.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Paint each pillow using the suggested colors: Navy Blue: wreath and "Fall"; Spicy Mustard: large leaf, "e" in hello, and "& everything nice"; Burnt Orange: large pumpkin, "l" and "o" in hello, "pumpkin", and small leaf; and Country Red:"h" and "l" in hello, "spice", and large leaf.
