With Valentine's Day right around the corner, you may be wondering what to get the special someone in your life. Go for an original, homemade gift with one of these do-it-yourself ideas.

DIY Cute Pillowcases

What you need:

  • Three pillowcases (two for the DIY and one for when ironing)

  • Scissors

  • Iron

Directions:

  1. Make a design online with the words “little spoon” and “big spoon.”

  2. Print out the design. Make sure the words are printed backwards.

  3. Cut out the design so there is as little extra white space as possible.

  4. Put the ironing pillowcase on a hard surface. Get rid of any wrinkles with the iron.

  5. Place the pillowcase that you will be putting the design on on top of the ironed pillowcase. Iron both pillowcases to remove wrinkles.

  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the second pillowcase.
