Spider Web Doily Pillow


I was at the dollar store a few weeks ago and picked up some doilies.  (I’m obsessed, even have a work in progress Pinterest board.)  I had no specific plans for them, until Macy walked in after school and said “Hey!  Those look like spider webs!”

I stitched from the center to each doily point and then continued on to the edges of my pillow front piece.

Once the doily was stitched in place, I took some spider rings (also from the dollar store) and cut off the ring part.  I tacked them onto the pillow by sewing around the 2 middle legs on each side, like this,


only with actual thread instead of yellow bars.  Those suckers are on there GOOD and I’m certain they’ll stay put.


Since I already had the orange fabric (IKEA clearance) and the pillow form, this project cost me about $1.25.


Not bad, right?

Do you have Halloween décor out yet?

Have you nailed down costume ideas?

  6. This is a pretty genius idea. If you took off the spiders after Halloween maybe you could make the doily look like a snowflake? Except the pillow is orange. Well, maybe you’ll just have to make some new pillows that have doily snowflakes on them. ;)
