How to Make a Skeleton Throw Pillow
I love making pillows for all the seasons and holidays. I can’t think of an easier way to add a little touch of fall or Halloween than with some HTV and a blank pillow cover. When it comes to DIY, my go to place for pillow covers is IKEA. They have a great selection of plain pillows that make a great canvas for my projects. Let’s go over the materials list…
What you will need:
- Cricut Machine (any Explore or Maker series, I recommend Explore 3 or Maker 3)
- White Iron On Vinyl (I used Smart Iron On with my Explore 3)
- Black Pillow Cover
- My Skeleton Arms Image
- Cricut Autopress or EasyPress of your choice
Let’s go over the steps:
Download my skeleton graphic and upload it to Cricut Design Space as a cut file. Add it to your canvas and resize it for your pillow cover as needed. I used Smart Iron On and set mine to 11.5 inches wide.
Send the image to your machine and select your Iron On Vinyl from the materials list (or turn the dial to the vinyl setting on the Explore Air series) DON’T FORGET TO MIRROR!
Using the Cricut Heat Guide for your heat-press, set the temperature and time on your heat press.
Place the cut designs on the apron and press. You may need to tape down the design with heat-resistant tape if the pillow cover is larger than your press plate.
Once cooled, remove the carrier sheet.
And that’s it! Super easy and I love the look of the hugging skeleton. I hope you give this project a try, and please tag me on social media if you do @michellespartyplanit.
