Today I am sharing an upcycle a pillow and make it new again.
These stinkin pillows were outside on the rockers all winter long.
They were sorta yucky and faded now.
I wanted to upcycle what I have instead of going out and buying new again.
So of course, my recent trip to hobby lobby
warranted a stop in the fabric section.
Fabric was on sale, so I scored it for pretty cheap.
I only bought a yard and half .
I simply cut two squares
hot glued three ends
stuffed the old faded pillow inside and hot glued it shut.
You know I love all things NO sew projects and you can check more of those out as well.
added this red ruffled trim.
Nothing says hello Like a roo!
Adds a little whimsy too.
And that is how you make a pillow 1, 2,3
the rockers were originally black and I painted them a few years ago.
Never again will I hand paint rocking chairs…
I’ll show you around the rest while you are here.
Birdhouse gifted to me a few years back by my husband.
As you can see the birds really do like it.
Porch painted Haint Blue in the Fall.
It’s a Southern thing and you can read all about the Southern Haint blue porch tradition.
Painted urns with AC chalk paint Old white
I bought some new wall art and a lantern at Hobby lobby about a month ago.
Everything was 50% off day and you can’t beat that day!
As you can see our neighborhood is well established with trees.
It is actually an older neighborhood, with only a few newer built homes here.
There is a mix of homes, from Lake homes, golf course, and woods.
We of course have the woods.
I’ll show you around back next time.

The pillow looks fabulous. I love it. Your porch is so welcoming and inviting, Hugs, Marty
You know I love that rooster fabric! Great updo!!
Debbie, your porch always looks so inviting with all of your creative touches! Love it! Hugs, Leena
Love that blue ceiling. Would it be OK for a Yankee like me to do that?!!
I would never have thought of glueing pillow covers, but what an easy project! And they turned out beautiful…of course because of the roo. Your porch is so beautiful, I can wait to see the back with the woods in the background!
Love your porch, Debbie!! Nothing like a good roo!!! I have the same urns that you painted….I love yours that color!!! I’m thinking I may do that come the holidays!! So lovely!!~~Ang
Your porch always looks so pretty Debbie! Love the pillow makeovers!

Your porch is so pretty, and your pillows are perfect! I keep thinking we will get you sewing, but you are proof…Who needs a sewing machine!
You are right Carol, not happening my friend LOL!
The pillows look great as does your porch. I am sure that in the cool of the evening it is a wonderful place to sit and relax
This is what I love about you. You do not sew like Me!!! and yet you come up with these really cute projects that look like they were sewn. I love the pillows so adorable. Great job. Gives us non sewers hope!!!!!! Have a wonderful week.
Thank you Kris, give it a whirl, you will be glad you did!
Yep, good as new now:)

I’ve been sitting here with fabric to recover my pillows for about two months now, because I was dreading getting out the sewing machine. It’s always a fight to get the bobbin wound and all that stuff. Love this idea!!! Love that lantern too.
I love that fabric!! I was just at Hobby Lobby on Friday but was in a semi hurry so didn’t even look at fabric. I think you and I probably got our last name letters at the same place 🙂 Love it all!!
Your pillows look terrific! I’m crazy about roosters. Your porch is so pretty. I agree, painting porch rockers by hand is no fun as those slats are killers. Next time I’ll probably be using spray paint.
That is such cute “roo” fabric, Debbie, and I really like the cute red trim! I’m constantly upcycling pillows around here, but I don’t think I have ever glued a pillow together. I’m not criticizing, I’m chuckling because that seems to be the trend today. It would certainly have saved me some precious time back in the day, if I had known about or actually had a glue gun! Now, however, I’m too set in my ways to change and can probably stitch a pillow together faster than you can hot glue one!
Your porch is just beautiful, and I love the color of the ceiling!
Oh Debbie, your porch looks great!! LOVE those urns too! Cute, cute pillows and I love the blue porch ceiling.
Great idea and so so easy too! Something that even I can do … I love that!!!
I’m loving your porch, Debbie! I would never attempt to sew anything, but I would definitely make these no-sew pillows! I never would have thought to hot glue them. You can tell I’m not really good at DIY stuff! Thanks for the insight.
Just catching up on all your old posts! So much inspiration here! Love the pillows and what a fun way to update! Your porch looks amazing!
Happy day to you!
that looks like something even I could do….love it Debbie…..PINNING
