Have you ever crafted a pillowcase? I’ve made pillow case covers from seasonal kitchen towels, but I’ve never taken a blank pillowcase and personalized it! Let me tell you, it’s super easy! Let’s do this!
Supplies I Used
- Canvas Pillow Case: I found mine at Hobby Lobby
- Assorted Wire-Edged Ribbons of your choice, 4 to 5: I’ve collected some from Hobby Lobby when they go on sale.
- Three Pom Poms: I had a garland of Pom Poms I’ve crafted with in the past and I used a few of these here.
- Fabric scissors
- Hot glue and glue gun

Making a christmas pillowcase
I decided since I was going pink this year for my Christmas decor, I needed a new pink decorated pillowcase!
To get started I grabbed about four to five different ribbons.
I picked a combination of black and white with burlap wire-edged ribbons and of course a couple of pinks designs.
Warm up the hot glue gone and we are ready to get started!
assembling our pillowcase
If you watch my shortened YouTube video below you’ll notice as I progress I start gluing my ribbons a certain way.
I found that gluing along the edges of the ribbon worked best.
Either way, be careful of the hot glue gun when gluing ribbon, the glue can seep through the fabric a little.
I started with the larger tree in the middle of my pillow, gluing the Christmas tree trunk and then I did the two smaller ones as my outline.
Then I roughly eye balled how wide I wanted my first row of ribbons, then I cut them with my new good scissors.
Yes, I finally got real fabric scissors!
Actually, I bought two and I love them, click here if you want to check them out!
I did an angle cut each side, applied glued and put them in place.
Each layer I applied a different ribbon, but my two smaller trees I kept them pretty much the same.
Taper the ribbons inward as you move up the tree and when you reach a point to where you want your tops of the tree to be then grab your Pom Poms or whatever you decide to use as a tree topper.
To apply the tree topper Pom Poms, I spread the fluff out a little, applied more hot glue and glued them in place.
The last step is to add my pillow insert and then decorate!
I hope you give this a try and if you do please share with me!
