Christmas Fabric Art from a Dishtowel

Christmas Fabric Art

I know…it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but I can’t help it…I’m in the Christmas spirit and I’m so excited to share my first Christmas project of the season. It’s my Christmas fabric art and I’ve got to say that I love it!

It all started with a dishtowel…

I was actually organizing a drawer when I found this dishtowel that a friend gave me last year as a hostess gift. Isn’t it just too cute?!

My first thought…wouldn’t it make a great Christmas pillow?

My second thought…what about a decoupaged tray?

Then I remembered that I had these round frames that I picked up at a flea market years ago…

So, I cut two circles that were an inch longer than the cardboard backing. I wrapped the fabric around the cardboard backing of the frame and taped it on the back.

Yes…you heard me.

I taped the fabric to the cardboard. There are several reasons why…

I wanted to be able to remove the fabric after the holidays so that I could use the frames later and I didn’t want to walk upstairs to grab my glue gun or the craft glue.

The pop of red and white looks gorgeous with the dark vintage frames. Plus, I think the round frames are great with the lettering. I like how the words seem to be continuous beyond the frames.

The frames do have wire to hang them on the wall but I really wanted to do something a little different with them. The easels were the ones I used at my daughter’s graduation party to hold her Photo Collage Letters. It’s a fun look to sit them on the easels.

This project was very spontaneous…

    What a great idea! I’ve been given dish towels that I hang everywhere – like oven handles – because I don’t want to use them and wear them out! Special gifts from special friends deserve hanging on to in a special way. I love this idea! Thanks for sharing – found you at Met Monday. 🙂
    His blessings,

    Goodness I was just about to toss out a mirror but you’ve given me a wonderful idea! Thanks for posting and using tape isn’t a bad idea 😉
