Need:
  • black pillowcase
  • 2 rectangles of white felt
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
What To Do:
  1. Iron pillowcase to remove creases and wrinkles first.
  2. Fold pillowcase in half, lengthwise, and then cut a small opening, on folded side, for the neck .  Unfold and then cut a slit down the back, only, about 5 inches long from the neck opening.
  3. Across from the neck opening, at each side seam, cut away a 1/4 inch slice for the arm holes.
  4. Dab a bit of white glue onto the cut edges to prevent fraying, if desired.
  5. Print "bones patterns" and cut out.
  6. Trace onto felt and then cut out and set in place on the pillowcase to form the skeleton.  Using the craft glue, glue into position and let dry.
  7. Add some white face paint for both hands and face or a skelton mask from the dollar store.  We think it looks cute by itself also.  Happy Trick or Treating!
