*This post was originally published in 2015. It’s such a great little craft that I wanted to share it again. The photos and links have all been updated. Enjoy!

I’m going to be quickly sharing a few projects for Halloween this week, so if you still have time to create before Halloween arrives, you are in the right place. First up is this sweet Jack O’ Lantern pumpkin pillow cover. This qualifies for three of my favorite things: quick, easy, and cheap. All you need to get started is an orange pillow cover, black peel and stick felt, scissors, and the jack o’ lantern template. (Sources listed at the end.)

Jack O’ Lantern Face Template

  • First thing to do is print out the jack o’ lantern face template. I always print templates on card stock so they are easier to trace. Regular paper will work fine too.
  • Cut out the eyes, nose and mouth.

Trace And Cut

  • On the back side of your peel and stick felt, trace the face and carefully cut it out.
  • Iron your pillow cover.
  • Place the face pieces on the pillow cover to figure out your spacing.
  • One at a time, peel the backing off each piece and press firmly (with your fingers) to the pillow cover.

That’s it! I actually love this so much, and if you have kids or grandkids, it would be a fun project to do with them. I promise it will make you smile.

    This was my first introduction to stick and peel felt and I haven’t looked back!! Such a great easy decorating idea….and I did this BEFORE my grandchildren were born in 2017 and 2018….and the pillow is still in great shape despite all the tiny finers who like to trace the shapes!! Ann, thanks for always sharing such great ideas…and I do love to search through your archives for “new” ideas! LOL
