Fun DIY Christmas Pillow Swap

HI everyone ! I was invited to be  a part of  a fun Secret Santa party hosted by Dria,and today I get to share with you what I sent and what I received!I started by sending a pillow cover  I stenciled with gold paint with a little gold glitter mixed in  and the antler stencils. I wanted to use gold because I thought it was  the easiest color to go with any one’s decor. It was a Fun DIY Christmas Pillow Swap!

stenciled pillow case for a fun secret santa gift! Really easy!

It was a really easy, and really fast project. I just used a canvas pillow cover from Canvas Corps and stenciled away! Once the paint dried, I also glued a cute little red ribbon on the deer head with fabric glue. I thought it added a nice natural touch.

Stenciled deer head pillow

You can use this stencil and this technique to get the deer head look. I sent my antler pillow to Jazmin over at Frugality Gal. Then it was my turn to get something fun! My gift came from the super sweet Christy over at Confessions of a Serial  Do-It-Yourselfer.

Fun pillow made form a vintage throw

I received a really beautiful  pillow made from a vintage bed spread. I love vintage linens so this was perfect for my house!

Pretty vintage throw pillow

It had really pretty pattern on it with little pearls and it just adds the right touch of brightness. I like that it could easily carry over into January. Those are the best kind of holiday decor!

Cute mini mittens

There were also the cutest handmade mittens were also in my package. I hung them on my china cabinet handles and they add such a sweet little touch. My girls went gaga over them! These are so cute to use year after year! It was so fun to do Fun DIY Christmas Pillow Swap and I hope we do it again next year!
