Winter Crafts for Kids

Sugar Plum Fairy Pillowcases

Sugar plum fairy pillowcases bring happy Christmas dreams while everyone sleeps. Use your imagination when you make this winter craft project.

What You'll Need:

  • White pillowcases
  • Cardboard the size of pillowcase
  • Pencil
  • Fabric paints
  • Paintbrushes

What does a sugar plum fairy look like? Is she wearing a long silver gown? A short blue tunic? Does she have wings or a wand? What color is her hair? Perhaps she is balancing a big sugar plum on the top of her head! However you want her to look, paint her in pretty colors so that any head resting on her will be full of sweet dreams.

Wash and dry a spare white pillowcase. Place a piece of cardboard inside so the paint won't bleed through. With a pencil, lightly draw a picture of a sugar plum fairy on the front of the pillowcase. When you finish, color in your outline with fabric paint.

After the paint dries, you may want to turn your pillowcase over and paint another sugar plum fairy on the back -- for double the dreaming pleasure!

The project on the next page, keepsake quilts, is one you -- and your kids -- will treasure forever.
