What You Will Need


  • Start by cutting your stencil and spider on your Cricut machine. Cut the stencil from a stencil material and the spider from felt. Then grab your stencil adhesive as well as masking tape to paint your pillow.
  • Spray the back of the stencil with the stencil adhesive. Allow to dry. This should dry completely. It will still be tacky but not wet.
  • Add paper or cardboard to the inside of your pillow cover to prevent bleed through.
  • Then stick the stencil to the front of your pillow cover. Add masking tape and paper all along the outside to protect from overspray.
  • Use Testors Fabric Spray Paint over the top of your stencil. Give it a couple of light coats being sure to get even coverage.
  • Remove the stencil and allow the pillow cover to dry completely.
  • Remove the paper from inside the pillow cover and add the spider to your web. Just use a needle with embroidery floss to hand stitch down the middle.
  • Tie off once stitching is complete. Then just add your pillow to the inside to complete your DIY Halloween pillow.
