On the wall behind our dining room table is a large picture, and a few years ago during the Christmas season I was looking at it and thought that it just does not fit in with the rest of the house when it is all decorated for Christmas.
I didn’t want to go out and purchase a new framed picture to hang there just for Christmas time, but I wanted to do something to “change things up”.
I found some Christmas fabric, and made a cover to go over the existing picture. Basically, I made a fitted sheet the size of the frame. This was pretty easy to do since I have made fitted sheets before from nursery bedding patterns . . . I just altered the dimensions to fit the frame.
I used some red satin to make a large bow that I pinned to one corner. It kind of looks like a giant wrapped present, and the nice thing is I can use it over and over again each year since it is fabric . . . I just had to iron it a bit once I pulled it out of the Christmas decorations box.
As you can see, I also changed the two items that were hanging to the right of the framed picture. Those were also simple to make, but I will save that for my next blog.
