It is so easy to think about pumpkins, ghosts and even skulls when you talk about Halloween. But lets find a way to translate this into a cute interior’s accent. Why not do a small skull cushion, not sewing required. For this easy project, I’m providing you with the printable which you can download it here. All you’ll need is some white fabric, iron transfer paper, and to decorate this bony beauty “a la Dia de los Muertos” style I use some Tulip Beads in a Bottle. Since this is a no-sewing project, I used Aleenes’s Fabric Fusion fabric adhesive which gave me an excellent result to put this guy together!

First print the provided art that you can download here. Wait a couple of minutes for it dry and then iron it following the instructions on the package of the iron transfer papers. Once this is all set up, I enhance the black parts of the skull using Tulip Fabric Markers. Now I was ready to start decorating the piece with the Beads in a Bottle. To do turn this into a cushion I cut around the head (having a second piece of fabric on the back) leaving about 1/2″ around it and glue together both pieces. Leaving an open in the top, I fill it with some old pillow stuff I had around. To close it, I glue this end. Photo: Gloribell Lebrón

As you’ll noticed this is an easy and fun project to do. This skull guy had my little one busy for a looong time!!! Mission accomplish. Happy Halloween!
