Countdown to Christmas - creative ideas for the holidays

I love the coloring book art in my dining room …

but for Christmas, I want the tree  to be the shining star.

So I just removed the backing on my frames and added wrapping paper right over the existing art  for an instant, easy art update.

The before …

Framed Zodiac Art - these are coloring book pages!

and the after.

Love this idea for an inexpensive way to easily update your art!

The perfect backdrop for all of the merriness that will soon be going on in here.

What a great idea - add wrapping paper right over your art!  Perfect for Christmas or any holiday

  1. Clever idea! Makes Christmas seem so close when you count Fridays. Oh wow, I try to wait until after Thanksgiving, but may start in the basement a little sooner. Thanks for the fun idea. I made bleached pinecones last year and loved them!

  2. 7 Fridays, oh good grief. LOve your stuff gal, always do.
    Always love to use music for holiday decorating. where can a person get some Christmas music to frame or use for ornaments? Am going to try not get crazy this year and actually get some cards sent out. Will probably shock people that haven’t heard from us for couple years, I know I’m ashamed of myself. I’m an old lady with arthritis in her hands. WEll I tried. BEing silly but why not? Have great weekend Kelly
