I decorate for Fall and Halloween together. Most of my pillows and pillow covers during this time of year only have Fall colors in them. I wanted to add some Halloween Pillow Covers this year to my rotation. I didn’t find any that I really loved and I didn’t want to have to wait for someone to make them so I decided to find a way to Make Halloween Pillow Covers myself.

Simple halloween pillow covers
When I was originally searching for Halloween Pillow Covers, I came across a lot of cute ones. The issue I had was I wanted something simple and easy. The ones I saw on the internet to make weren’t that or they required vinyl machines (which I do have but don’t like to use) or having special embellishments which I didn’t have.
I looked around at the Halloween decor my daughter had already decorated the den with and went to Amazon to search. You can see [HERE] that I love to decorate for fall and Halloween. I love crafting when I have time. With two storms approaching the gulf and surgery coming up I didn’t want to spend a few days preparing these Halloween pillow covers so I had to make sure what I came up with fit into my budget and time restraints.
The possibilities are endless. I hope you will use your imagination and tell me in the comments below what kind of pillows you could make. I can’t wait to show you the ideas I have for Christmas (that will be next month).
Did I mention you can make 4 Halloween Pillow Covers for less than $25?

instructions for diy Halloween Pillow Covers
- Gather Supplies
- Wash Drop Cloth and dry
- Iron Drop Cloth and Tapestry (use low heat on Tapestry and test a section first)
- Put on a fun movie. Might I suggest a Halloween movie?
- Determine the size of the pillow cover and cut 2 pieces (front and back piece) from the ironed drop cloth. I used a 24″ square pillow. You will want to cut one square 25″ x 25″ and one piece 25″ x 26″. The larger piece will be the back of the pillow cover. If you use a different size pillow – cut one piece 1″ larger than the pillow and the second piece 2″ larger for the back.
20″ square pillow – cut 21″ x 21″ square and 21″ x 22″ rectangle
- Take the back larger piece and cut it across the back on the long piece. I measured 12″ down and cut it across (think like an envelope).
- Decide what scenes you want on your pillow and start cutting the Tapestry to fit the drop cloth pillow cover. I cut 19″ squares approximately.
- Pin the scene or use Spray adhesive to put Halloween scene on the front piece drop cloth. Sew on to front piece.
- Take the two drop cloth pieces that you cut for the back and sew a 1/4″ hem.
- Turn the 3 pieces right side in and pin together.
- Sew a 1/2″ seam around the outside
- Flip it right side and insert pillow.
