DIY ghost pillow with video tutorial

Super excited to share that I’m starting a DIY craft video series! I’ve been wanting to do it forever and now I’m finally taking the plunge. Oh, and I’m learning here so please be kind. {sheepish grin}

So today I teamed up with Sew Jewell to bring you a video tutorial on how to make a Halloween ghost pillow. Super easy craft and mine has been a plush toy for my boys, a throw pillow for my front porch bench and even hung as Halloween decor.

To make your own Halloween ghost plush pillow you’ll need:

  • 1/2 yard white fabric
  • 1/2 yard quilting batting
  • Pillow stuffing (how much depends on how fat you want him)
  • Black fabric (for the face)
  • WonderUnder or similar iron on adhesive  (available at your local craft store)
  • Sewing machine, or be willing to hand stitch

Watch our video craft tutorial for all the how to steps:

And here’s what he looks like with his ghostly tail.

Thanks for watching and as always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate! Happy Halloween!!

    Such a fun idea Kim! And I love how you tell moms to let them stuff the ghost so the kiddos know what’s inside. :)
