Three Halloween Pillows {tutorial}

I am really into grey and white Halloween decor this year.

I decided to make some Halloween pillows to compliment this color scheme with a modern twist. Aren’t these fonts fun??

I also love all of the Silhouette projects that have been going around the past few years, and I thought it would be fun to make a “Pretty Witch” silhouette.

{I’m not a big gory Halloween lover, I like the “happy” side of Halloween}

I started off with some pillow covers from Ikea. These pillow covers are cheap and make the project come together so much faster! I think they were $6/cover. I pull out the pillow forms from other pillows and use them over and over again. This makes it easier to store holiday decor and it’s much cheaper than having to buy pillow inserts every time I want to make a pillow.

These pillows are super easy and fast to make.

I made all three in an hour.

To make these pillows, this is what I did:

  • Heat Transfer Material
  • Craft Cutter. I used my Silhouette.
  • Pillow Cover.
  1. Design your image on your computer.
  2. Be sure to flip the image horizontally. This makes your letters come out the right way with the Heat Transfer material.
  3. Print it out. Be sure to do a test cut first to make sure the blade doesn’t cut all the way through the material.
  4. Peel off the excess Heat Transfer material, so only the image you want on the pillow shows through.
  5. Position the sticky side of the material on the pillow where you want it to go.
  6. Iron the image on the pillow.

I also used  metallic silver Heat Transfer for the “OR” to mix things up a bit. I love how shiny it looks!

That’s it!! Just put your insert inside and you have  spiffy new Halloween pillows to display for this Spooky Season!!

PS — If you want to make these pillows, I would be glad to email you the SVG file. Just leave me a message with your email address in the comments :)

PPS — I’m over at Brown Paper Packages today sharing my new and improved School Command Center. I’m trying to get organized this school year – fingers crossed!! And, I’m loving the bicycle fabric I found for my bulletin board!!
