Dollar Tree DIY Ghost Pillow
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that I love sharing unique Dollar Tree Crafts, especially for the holidays. This cute DIY Ghost Pillow is so easy to make and only took me 20 mins to make it! Let’s get into what you will need:
- Pillow cover and a pillow insert (I used an 18×18 pillow with a 20-inch insert)
- Mop head from Dollar Tree
- SureBonder Fabric Glue Sticks
- Glue Gun
- Polyester Polyfil
- Cardstock and a Pen (you can also use this design in Cricut Design Space with your Cricut, draw the pattern on cardstock and cut the eyes from felt or cardstock to use as a pattern)
I created a quick step-by-step video for you below….
DIY Ghost Pillow Steps
Did you know you can use your Cricut machine to make patterns for your projects? This is optional, but I created this quick project in Design Space that you can adjust to fit your pillow. Just add cardstock to your mat, and load in the Cricut. Add the pen to the adapter and make it. Remove it from your mat and place it inside the pillow, center, and tape to secure it. Use it as a guideline to glue your map pieces. You can also do this part by just drawing an arch shape on cardstock.
Once you have your template drawn and placed in the pillow cover, take apart the mop. And start gluing the strands along the line as shown in the video. Trim the edges to keep them even as you go.
Cut two eyeball shapes and a mouth shape with scissors and black felt. Glue on top to make the ghost pillow face.
Add the pillow insert and you’re all done!
I wasn’t kidding when I said this was an easy project! I hope you give it a try!
