Try making this DIY family silhouette pillowcase for a Mother’s Day craft idea! You can either sew your own pillowcase or scour home decor stores like Ikea for simple and inexpensive cases to paint. Remember, you don’t have to use a white pillowcase. If you’re worried about grubby hands try another light colour, just make sure you can see your silhouette stencils through the fabric for tracing.
