EEK Pillow

Been working on decorating my front porch/patio for Halloween
Basically its a concrete slab.
Its my concrete slab
And I can do what I wish with it.

My Mom gave me a bench.
I was going to put it in our Master Bedroom.
It just wasn't working.
It more was a place to pile things upon.
So out to the porch it went.

I definitely want to paint it.
What color is another story..........

Now back to the pillow......
So a bench needs pillows.
So why not Halloween Pillows.

First step visit The Graphics Fairy
That is where I found the spooky looking tree.
I printed it directly onto a piece of muslin.
I added pieces of orange burlap to the top and bottom.
(I had to do this to fit my existing pillow form I had)

I found bat buttons at Joann's
Thought they would look great flying on the tree.
Stamped on the "EEK" with some acrylic paint

The other two pillows are just from some black checked fabric I had.
I used natural burlap on the backside so I can flip them after Halloween.

So there we have it.
A pillow that says EEK.
Are we scared yet?

More to come on the porch later this week........
Someone stayed home from school today with a runny nose.
But insisted on being outside with me.

And she picked out her outfit herself today
No wonder she is hiding her face

But a sneak peek on another porch project......

Burlap Candy Corn Bunting.

Hanging out with my Friends......
