Halloween DIY Pillow Ideas:

 Let’s look at the simple and easy procedure to make DIY pillows for Halloween.

Halloween Throw Pillows:

Throw pillows with cute bat and ghost shapes are perfect for Halloween. However, we’re sure your couch could benefit from them.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Printable ghost and bat templates
  • 2x A3 black felt sheet for bat cushion
  • 2x A4 white felt sheets for ghost cushion
  • Normal cotton thread and black embroidery
  • Normal cotton thread with white embroidery
  • Filling for cushions
  • Fabric scissors
  • Fabric pen or chalk
  • Needle

How to make it?

Create the templates on felt and cut them twice. Draw the faces of the bat and ghost, then embroider the features with a needle and embroidery thread that contrasts with the felt. However, place the cut felt pieces’ right sides together, right sides facing, and sew a running stitch all the way around with a 1cm or 1/2 inch seam allowance. Although, allow for the possibility of turning your pillow inside out. Split the seam allowance, then flip the cushion right side out and fill it with cushion stuffing. Sew a ladder or invisible stitch through the aperture.

 Halloween Pillow with a Spider:

A Halloween spider cutout cushion that can frighten your visitors with the frightening crawler.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Fabric Spray Paint Cricut Machine Pillow Cover Testors (Alternatively, a pre-made stencil and felt spider can be purchased.)
  • Stencil substance
  • Tape for masking
  • Adhesive for stencils
  • Cardboard or paper
  • The color black felt
  • Cut file for Cricut
  • Embroidery thread
  • Needle

How to make it?

Begin by using your Cricut machine to cut your stencil and spider. Make the stencil out of stencil material and the spider out of felt. Then, using your stencil glue and masking tape, paint your cushion. Allow the stencil glue to cure on the reverse of the stencil. It will remain sticky after drying but should not be moist. However, to keep the paint from seeping through, line the inside of your pillowcase with paper or cardboard.

Then, apply the stencil to the front of your pillowcase. Apply masking tape and paper all around the outside of the pillow cover to protect it from overspray. However, allow the pillow cover to dry completely after removing the stencil. Remove the paper from the interior of the pillowcase and insert the spider into your web. Moreover, simply hand stitch down the center with an embroidery needle and floss. And it’s all set to go wherever you want.
