Have you ever used iron-on vinyl? It’s pretty much magical, and every time I use it I’m reminded that I love it and that I want to put iron-on vinyl on everything! Seriously, I love this stuff! I’ve used it on shirts, bags, holiday pillows & a pillow for my bed, and other fun things, and they always turn out great! Today, as part of a Fall Challenge with Cricut, I’m sharing this fun DIY Halloween Pillow.

DIY Halloween Pillow Supplies:
- Cricut Explore Machine
- Cricut Iron-On Vinyl – Black
- Cricut Iron-On Vinyl – Gold Glitter
- Cricut Tools
- 12 x 24 Cricut Mat
- Pillow Covers
Start out by designing your project in Cricut Design Space.
Place your iron-on vinyl on your mat. Make sure you read the instructions and put it on the mat the correct way, so you cut it from the correct side. Click “GO” on the computer, and follow the prompts on the screen for cutting your image. Make sure you check the box “MIRROR IMAGE FOR IRON-ON”. I’ve cut a few projects and realized after they were cut that I forgot to mirror the image, and you don’t want to waste iron-on vinyl!
Set the cut dial on your machine to “Iron-on”. Because I was cutting glitter vinyl as well as regular, I set mine to “Iron-on +”.
Load your mat and cut your images.
Once your images are cut, you’ll need to weed them. The weeding tool is amazing for this!
Take all the negative space off so you are left with just your image. It will be reversed from what you designed.
Place your images onto your pillow.
Lay a towel over your iron-on vinyl and iron it. Follow the instructions included with your iron-on vinyl.
Once it’s all ironed on to your pillow, you’ll pull off the plastic from the top.
Use a pillow form to fill up your pillow and set it out for Halloween!
Glitter vinyl is my favorite! I love the sparkle and there is no mess to clean up with this glitter!
I thought this witch pillow was pretty fitting for me, because some days, in a house full of boys, I can get a little witchy…and not just at Halloween time. 😉 I also love that it matches the sign I made to go with my Black & White Halloween Decor.
So tell me, what would you put on your Halloween pillow? I’d love to hear!
