All day long I invite my daughter to play. I lay out play dough with buttons, Lego with her princess figurines, her doctor kit and stuffed animals… but often I forget to invite her to read. We read a lot and never miss our three books every night but I don’t usually lay out a stack of books and invite her to read independently. When Tulip For Your Home invited me to create a fun stenciled pillowcase for a sponsored post I knew exactly what I wanted to use this for. To make quiet time more inviting in her room with a fun pillow and a stack of great books.
Here is how I made the pillowcase. Oh and I was worried when I saw they only had one pillowcase in the box… what about
if when I mess up! Well I didn’t mess up because the stencils and the secret weapon ( the adhesive ) worked perfectly!
Start by spraying the adhesive on the back of the all over stencil. Ours was polka dots. If you spray and let it dry ( so it’s tacky) the stencil can be repositioned multiple times. I am glad i did this because apparently straight lines aren’t as easy for me as they should be.
Find just the right spot and paint. Let dry for a few days.
Fill with a pillow, add some books, and invite your child to read quietly. She was so excited to have a new reading pillow with an owl on it!
