Everyday Fun Homemade Beauty Mask
Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

This eye pillow, filled with lavender and flaxseed, is a Mother's Day gift that actually takes something away: stress!

What you'll need

  • Flannel-backed satin fabric
  • Glue
  • 16-inch length elastic
  • Funnel
  • 5 tablespoons flaxseed
  • 3 tablespoons dried lavender
  • Black fringe fabric trim

How to make it

  1. Cut two pillow pieces from flannel-backed satin (download our template here). On the satin side of one piece, use tacky glue to attach rickrack edging and two 2-inch lengths of black fringe fabric trim eyelashes. Trim the fringe if necessary.

  2. Beauty Mask

    Run a line of glue around the flannel-side edge of the other fabric piece, leaving an inch-wide gap (shown in photo A, marked by waxed paper). Glue the ends of a 16-inch length of elastic to the flannel (A). Lay the other fabric piece on top, satin side up, and gently press the pieces together. After the glue dries, use a funnel to pour 5 tablespoons of flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of dried lavender into the opening (B) and glue it closed.

  3. Beauty Mask - Step 3

    Before using the pillow, heat it in a microwave for about 20 seconds to warm the flaxseed and release the lavender scent.
