Krylon Glitter Blast Halloween Pillows

First, I picked a font and cut out a pattern using my Cricut. This font is called Greer. You can get it HERE.
I found this drop cloth at Walmart for $10. Believe me, you will never run out...
Out of the drop cloth, I cut six 15"x15" squares.
Next, I sprayed the back of the pattern with adhesive, and centered it on the square. Press it down and make sure it sticks. I taped the edges that were showing so the glitter would not get everywhere.
After you have everything in its place, SPRAY!! Be sure to stay 12 inches away and cover the area well.
Carefully take the pattern off and let dry for 20 mins.
The can says not handle for 24 hrs, but it seemed to be pretty dry, SO I went ahead and sewed the back of the pillow on and left a hole to insert the stuffing.
Finally, stuff the pillow and sew the hole up...

Now you got yourself some mighty cute Halloween Pillows!

Mindie said...

SUPER cute! Can I ask, how big did you make your font? It fits perfectly. Also, how do I download the font and get it to work with my cricut.
Thanks,
Mindie

Jessica said...

The font size is 12in x 12in (or as big as you can make it on Cricut 12x12 mat.

In order to use fonts from your computer with the Cricut you need a program called Sir Cuts A lot. Unfortunately, the company no longer supports Cricut.

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

These are adorable. You have the best Halloween ideas--I still love your candy corn from last year!

MaryCarol said...

Love your pillows! I bought a canvas dropcloth but notice it has a thin film on the back probably to keep paint from seeping through. Was yours like this? Not sure I should try to run it through the washer, dryer, or iron it as many suggest. Thoughts?

Hello I just ran across this on pinterest! SO cute. I was wondering how you downlaoded the font onto your cricut? I thought you only could use the cartridges. I would love to know! Thank you!
