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.
