Paint Can Pillow Cases

Almost every time I go and pick Hannah up from a sleepover her friends always ask, “Can you make me a pillow case like Hannah’s?” Pleaseeeeee!

So this Christmas I have been whipping out minky pillow cases left and right, using a simple pattern I found online a few years back. It honestly takes me about 20 minutes to whip one up! For her to gift to her closest friends this Christmas. You canjust as easy but any cute pillow case and create the same. If sewing happens not to be your thing.

I found some cute eye covers at Target for $1.00 and decided that I couldn’t even make them that cheap. Then we stumbled upon some mood changing nail polish at Claries, which Hannah just HAD to have. Ten year old girls are all about the “mood change” stuff. Can’t imagine why! {Smile}

I really wanted a cute way to wrap everything up. I am a firm believer the way you package a gift is just as much the gift, as the gift it’s self!

When at Michael’s last week I found these cute clear paint cans.

And decided to make Paint Can Pillow Cases.

I know Hannah can’t wait to pass these out to her friends.

  9. Love this idea. Last year for Christmas a sweet 9 year old made adorable pillowcases that she painted that said "Let visions of sugarplums dance in your head" that she gave us. Might be a cute tag to add to your adorable package.
