DIY drop cloth pillow {Lucy hates it}

This is an easy DIY drop cloth pillow idea for you.
I decided this post may be a better GUTS post for Donna's challenge than my original thoughts.
Ya know for Halloween decorating, it is NOT all about my boys! I do have a little girl in the house that requires some attention too!
I bought this cute skull bling bling tattoo at Walmart for a few bucks.
Again, never knowing what I will come up with.
Today, it hit me.  I have some drop clothes, my no sew liquid stitch glue, craft paint, and off I went.

First I rolled some black craft paint all over my cut squares.

I did first iron the fabric and glue stitch the three sides leaving the top open for stuffing later on.

I then ironed on my skull tattoo as followed by the directions on the package.
As you can see I took some red craft paint and drizzled it on for the effect of blood.

I stenciled little Lucy's initial on it, to make it her OWN.

And there you have Lucy's little dog bed decked out for Halloween!

So Luce what do you think?

I think I am exhausted, and I can't sleep on that thing...

Oh well, looks cute anyhow, go on the couch or on my bed!
Hope you enjoyed the DIY drop cloth spooked out pillow.

Have a great day!

NEWBIE party going on

Look at you! So perfect for your skull theme and I'm loving the red accents for blood...hehe...the puffy paint type stuff reminds me of my birthday sleepovers when I was younger and at one we all decorated pillowcases with it...good times!

Poor Lucy, she probably wants something less scary to rest her head on. Maybe a cute princess pillow? It is a cute pillow though!

Poor Lucy does look a bit unimpressed at all your hard work:) I think it's cute that you decorate for your fluffy child too! God bless x

I first of all just have to say that your little dog, Lucy is sooooo cute! I have a special fondness for smushed in face doggies. I'm sure little Lucy didn't care too much for her dog bed especially after you put all that scratchy paint on it! Ha! You did a good job though with your creativity. You came up with something on your own and that's the best part. Does Lucy dress up for Halloween?

Hi Debbie, How sweet that "Lucy" is included in decorating for Halloween, I would have never thought of that. I do put a witch hat on Lexi and take pictures and also do other holiday pictures but never thought about decorating a bed for her. Thanks for sharing, you are so talented and are always fashion forward in your decorating, love it!

Lucy's face is classic! I love the pillow. You always amaze me how you look at something and buy it with no idea what you are going to do and then you create something amazing! You are awesome!

Poor thing! She does look exhausted. I first thought your iron on was something you had done with one of those stud machines. Remember those? I was thinking where did she find one of those. LOL! You did a very cute job on the Halloween pillow!

poor Lucy. She probably doesn't like the new paint smell. But oh so yucky and halloweeny! Just perfect I mean.

Love the aged look you gave the drop cloth with the black paint. A super project! Hmmm, these pillows would look "spookingly" spectacular on my black leather couch too!
