Each Halloween I try my best to do different with the decoration and arrangements when it comes to sewing themed projects. You can create a small to medium sized table runner easily using simple black and orange colored fabric. Just like the one in the image, this check design looks so elegant and simple, yet you can also use it for later dinners.

In the end, use fabric glue to stick it, and let it dry before you sew the both parts together. And here you go, you spooky and scary cushion cover is ready to use!
