DIY Halloween Pillow Cover

Saturday, October 17, 2015

Halloween is almost here and as you may know, I'm all about low key seasonal decor. I don't have a whole lot of time or the cash flow to deck out my space for the holiday, but I just had to decorate a little bit. This particular pillow cover DIY is so simple, fun and great for Halloween! With three drops of fabric glue, this project can easily become a no sew pillowcase DIY project.

  • Scissors
  • 1 yard of fabric
  • Iron
  • Fabric glue or thread and needle
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Painter's tape
  • Printer or Letter Stencils

Begin by measuring your fabric. This will differ based on the dimensions of your pillow. My pillow measured 10x14 to get the right fabric size you'll need to:
  • Double the width, add 3 inches
  • Double the length, add 5 inches
Basically, you just want a little bit of wiggle room outside of just doubling the measurements of the pillow.

Phase two of this spooky sweet DIY includes a lot of folding. Begin by folding the lengthwise edges of the fabric over the pillow.

Fold the width-wise edges like you're wrapping up a gift.

Use your iron to faux sew the edges and secure the creases. If you're going for a super crisp look, use some fabric glue to hold the edges down. Repeat the folding and ironing on the other side.

Make sure the edges match up evenly.

Sew or glue the edges together. I chose to sew the edges because it looks a little more Jack Skellington-esque, perfect for Halloween.

Now we paint! This part is pretty easy, for a step-by-step guide to how I print my stencils take a look at this post.

Not perfection, but pretty good. That's all there is to it!

Bonus bat.
