Sugar Skull Pillow

Now begins the Halloween Spooktacular Crafts! I'll be offering a tutorial a week during the month of October to get you feeling like a Halloweenie!

Start your Halloween decorating off right with this fun sugar skull pillow. I used pillows that have been laying around my house forever, and upcycled fabric from the costume shop I work at for the skulls. This project is great, because if you want to change the pillow out and put the skull on a different item it is pretty easy to switch.
