Drop Cloth HaLLoWeEN Pillow

I'm jumping on the Halloween train early this year so I can make the most of it.

Besides with our new addition set to arrive soon I'll be consumed with diapers and drool rather than crafts...

I used a drop cloth from Home Depot to make this pillow.

I decided to try out Martha Stewarts new paint line for my green and orange lines. It worked great....just a little stinky for my sensitive pregnancy nose. This stuff apparently works on any craft surface including glass.

Using painters tape I taped off my lines on one side of the pillow and painted with a foam brush between the lines.

While that was drying I ironed on my TriCk Or TrEAt iron on that I found at Michaels onto a smaller piece of drop cloth.

My patch was sewn on using a zig zag stitch then I was ready to assemble my pillow.

I sewed all the way around the edges on the front side leaving about a 4 inch gap on one end.
I stuffed the pillow with Poly fill and sewed the opening shut.

Here's how she turned out!!
Happy Fall Ya'll!!!

Pssst I'm linking this project to....


  1. I have been wondering about the new line of paints. Your pillow looks wonderful and so cute!

  3. Thanks for the tip on the paint. Adorable pillow! :) Cute, cute.

  4. Is the Martha line up here too? I haven't been to Michaels for a while so I will have to check everything out! Your pillow looks awesome - I love the glitter! Matthew wanted that iron on for a shirt (this was back in August when I did not want to be thinking of Halloween!) It looks great. Hope you guys are doing well!
