Not-So-Spooky Mummy Pillow

Categories: Decor, Pillow, Halloween, Oly*Fun, Fall

Add some not-so-spooky decor to your home this Halloween with this easy DIY Mummy Pillow. The best thing about this pillow project? You don’t need to make a separate pillow cover! Simply sew strips of Oly*Fun directly to a Decorator’s Choice pillow form.

I used sheets from the Oly*Fun Variety Class Pack, which wound up being the perfect size for my pillow form. If you don’t have a Class Pack, you could use Craft Packs of each color.

Step One

Spread Snow White Oly*Fun™ on a cutting mat and cut into strips using a rotary cutter. I cut mine at varying widths between 1” and 1½”. If you are using Craft Packs instead of the Variety Class Pack, trim the length to be just longer than your pillow form. I used a 16” x 16” pillow and the Class Pack sheets are 18” long, so I had just a bit of extra on the ends that I trimmed away after Step Three.

Step Two

To make the Mummy eyes – cut two large circles of Jet Black Oly*Fun, two medium circles of Snow White Oly*Fun and two small circles of Jet Black Oly*Fun.

Step Three

Remove the stuffing from the Decorator’s Choice pillow form and set aside. Starting at the bottom of the pillow case, arrange the fabric strips so they overlap slightly. Pin at the sides to hold them in place. Work your way to the top until the whole pillow case is covered with fabric strips, then use a sewing machine to stitch down each side.

Step Four

Find a spot about ⅓ down from the top of the pillow and glue down the eyes. Arrange a few more strips of Snow White Oly*Fun that criss-cross the first layer and sew these down. This will give your pillow that true “mummy look”. You can partially cover one or both of the eyes if you prefer.

Step Five

Add the stuffing back to the pillow form and your Mummy Pillow is ready to display! Once it’s been re-stuffed, you may need to adjust the Oly*Fun strips.
