A freezer paper stenciled snowflake pillowcase. A perfect addition to your winter decor! And so easy, even for the inexperienced crafter. In fact, taking a half decent photo of this pillow was ten times harder than making it. (Maybe because I decided to take a little nap in the Mediterranean sunshine in the middle of the shoot? Sorry, not trying to make those of you who are snow bound jealous....we're expecting rain tomorrow.....) Now I know why the un-made bed look is popular in photos these days—by default! Come to think of it, the professionals probably don't even use real mattresses under those smooth wrinkle free sheets. Okay, sorry, back to crafting!
Now, as I was saying, freezer paper stenciled pillowcases are a great way to add a little cheerful color to any room, and can even be the finishing touch (or starting point) you were looking for! I really think that a few of these pillowcases could turn a cute room into something beyond adorable. And of course, you don't have to make snowflakes, how about letters, or spelling out a message with a few pillows? Little birds on one pillow, a birdhouse on another? And guess what, here's the tip of a lifetime that I almost forgot about myself— you can run freezer paper through your printer, oh my! (Just make sure that the printing happens on the non-shiny side.) And then all you need to do is cut the design out with your craft knife. Are you swooning? I am.
