Fall Decorating with Vintage Sheets

I have a fall decorating dilemma. I'm hoping that you can help me decide what to do.

I just bought some harvest themed pillowcases and flat sheet at the thrift shop.

I love the harvest gold and brown colors but I don't know what to make. I want to turn them into something festive for fall. Here are some ideas that I found on the internet. Help me choose a project.


Rag garland
I've never made rag garland before. I know, shocker! Click on the link to see the same fitted sheet used 3 ways. More inspiration!


Fabric Pumpkins

These fabric pumpkins are an easy but fun fall project. I could make different sizes and I'm thinking that I could make stems from some wood that I found on the beach.
Cottage Industry
Or fabric wrapped pumpkins

In this version,  the fabric is torn into strips and wrapped around a foam pumpkin. I love the details of the felt leaves and flowers by the stem.

Flamingo Toes

Fall Wreath

This fabric-wrapped wreath is so pretty. I love the coordinating stripes on the base and the big fabric flower with faux berries on the bottom. I'm pretty sure I have that brown satin ribbon in my stash, too.
Jump up and Down

A Pillow

This round pillow is an adorable poof. I could also do a square pillow.


I love the idea of using different strips of fabrics to make a modern looking placemat.

Scrap Happy Table Runner

I'm in love with this table runner made with fabric and doilies and decorated with embroidery. It's a great project for scrap fabric.

I love an excuse to use Mod Podge. These coasters are so fun. The challenge would be to get my family to actually use a coaster.

Rag Rug

Rag rugs are always fun to make and a budget friendly project with vintage sheets.

Craft Passion

Fall Quilt

I love the florals with the stripes and the randomness of the pattern. I'm not sure if I could finish this by the end of fall.

Use the sheet as a tablecloth and cover with a burlap table runner.

I also have that beautiful set of sheets. I think the tablecloth would be a good idea.

They all are great ideas. But I think I would go with the pillows. I love throw pillows.

Too many fun things for sure! My first thought was they'd make a great pillow. But oh a runner or quilt would be fabulous as well. Love the pumpkins too. I think you'd loose too much of the design in a fabric garland. The sheets are perfect and will make anything have a wonderful fall feeling!
