Deck the Walls!


Ever since I found the perfect giant sunflower paintings by a local artist at one of my favorite little shops, I’ve enjoyed them in spring, summer, and fall. However, when December rolls around, they become Christmas decor! In the past, I’ve always wrapped them in Christmas paper, but this year I purchased some pretty $1/yard cotton fabric that I can use year after year for a little more Earth-friendly approach.

  1. What a novel idea! I’m constantly amazed at what people think of doing. We tend to be outside over this holiday so don’t quite go to the lengths of you northern hemisphere folks – but this is one worth filing away …. πŸ™‚

    • I’m sure your guests would love it! And it only takes a few minutes to do, too. I saw in a magazine that a lady covered all the books in her bookshelves with Christmas paper when decorating! I’m not that industrious!!! πŸ™‚

  2. I do this, too! I saw it at a hotel about 10 years ago and every year since, I’ve wrapped my paintings. Big impact, little cost. I usually choose paper to match whatever theme I’ve got going that year, but I love your idea to reduce/reuse/recycle fabric. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This looks so fun and so fabulous. I have been flirting with the idea of doing this with one of my prints this year but haven’t quite taken the plunge. I prefer using fabric instead of wrapping paper. Well done! ~Thea

  4. And if you get tired of it, you can make pillows or a tree skirt or ornaments or little girls’ Christmas dresses out of it. Or mug rugs or tea cozies or . . . . . . .

  5. I’ve got some Christmas fabric just sitting here twiddling it’s thumbs – I just had to have it because it was beautiful and it was in the bargain bin! So you have inspired me to give my fabric a purpose – I’ll tackle your gorgeous, clever project later this week. Thank-you. x

  6. This is the 2nd time in a week that I have seen this idea. The first was at a friend’s open house. I had never thought of doing something like this, but it’s awesome. Now to go find some X-mas fabric and see what I can wrap up on my walls πŸ™‚ Love your fabby.

  7. I used to take down my art and wrap them with paper as well, I stopped that practice when I got tired of the hours it took to decorate my home for Christmas. Love the fabric you found.

    • Thank you for the lovely compliment! I used packing tape and fastened the fabric to the back of the art canvas . . . it easily pulls off when I’m ready to remove it. I hope this works for you, too! πŸ™‚
