I created an inexpensive cute mummy on one side and a snowman on the other side of a pillow cover, and it packs away easily too!
Materials needed for your cute mummy and snowman pillow cover
How do you make a mummy for Halloween?
Instructions for your mummy and snowman pillow
1. Make your mummy’s eyes
I drew 2 eyes on a piece of adhesive white felt. I cut them out, peeled the back off the felt, and stuck them to the pillowcase. You could use regular felt and use hot glue or fabric glue to stick them to your pillow cover.
2. Cut strips of fabric for your mummy
I used an old tank top, but you could easily use new fabric for your mummy’s wrap. I cut strips of fabric making sure they’d be wide enough to cover one side of the pillow cover.
3. Place your strips of fabric on your pillow cover
Place your strips of fabric onto your pillow cover. Feel free to play with your design to make your mummy unique.
4. Hot Glue the fabric strips onto the pillow cover
Use your hot glue (or you could use fabric glue) to adhere your fabric strips into place on the pillow cover.
Here is a quick look at the completed mummy side of the pillow cover.
5. Make a snowman on the reverse side
On the other side of the pillowcase make your snowman face. I cut out 7 black circles with the adhesive black felt. I cut out a carrot nose with orange fabric (I couldn’t find adhesive orange felt when I made this). I stuck the black circles onto the pillowcase to form the eyes and mouth, and I placed the carrot nose in the middle using fabric glue.
6. Insert your pillow form
My pillow cover was 20 x 20 inches and I bought a 20 x 20 inch pillow form to place inside the pillow cover.
What I love about this project is that I bought 1 pillow cover and by decorating both sides I can keep it out for months. When it’s time to put it away, I can pull the pillow form out and lay the pillow cover flat in my storage bin for Halloween for next year.
I can make several of this per season, holiday, and more. I just use the pillow form, again and again, so no need to store this in my bins.
