The Autumn Collection: The Acorn Burlap Pillow

We're back today to share the second burlap pillow in our new Autumn Collection that launched this month! This collection is all about celebrating the fall season, and what's a better way to bring it indoors than with a silhouette of an Acorn. Acorns are nature's gems, peppering the ground around our large trees and signifying change in seasons.

The Acorn burlap pillow is a compliment to our Pumpkin burlap pillow, using the same square shape and dimensions at 15.5 inches by 15.5 inches. The burlap fabric used for the front of the pillow is completely repurposed from a coffee bean sack. The pillow is backed by an off-white canvas fabric and easily matched to any room color scheme this fall season. The painted silhouette was created by hand, using a homemade stencil and hand-painting with a chocolate brown fabric paint.

Acorns are simple elements in nature, often ones that we overlook as they lie at our feet and we go about our day. It's only during some down time a few weeks ago in a weekend trip to the northern part of the lower peninsula here in Michigan did I really stop to notice them. Their image is a perfect way to bring the natural outdoors inside as we prepare for the cooler temperatures and longer days this season.

You can find the Acorn pillow and more for purchase in our Etsy shop here. I'll be back to share more designs in the Autumn Collection this week!
