So maybe I have a thing for hidden messages lately (remember this pillow with a pocket?), but this handmade embroidery project would be super cool for a children's space. Glow-in the-dark thread is used alongside regular thread to reveal an image or message when it's lights out.

This idea works particularly well on this spider-web, geometric design as the hidden glow in the dark thread blends right in. Plus, you don't have to worry about perfect stitches, making it a great project for beginners who are still new to embroidery.

Check out the full tutorial over at Whip Up. It'll be a secret surprise for them when the lights go out each night. If you're not the mushy type, you could always sew in a silly monster or maybe even a diamond ring for a little bling. The possibilities are endless depending on how complicated you'd like to make your line work.
