How to make a Halloween fabric scrap pillowcase

Pillows are an easy decor solution for any time of the year but work especially well for holidays. By swapping out these staple items, your space can take on a whole new look with little effort. With its knotted edging and Halloween-themed pattern, this pillowcase is just the right blend of playful and spooky.
Choose fabrics with similar color schemes for a polished finished product. Check out the video and instructions to get started. Don't be afraid to veer away from the typical orange and black color combination. Colors such as purple, green and gray work just as well for Halloween decor.
