I’ve spotted a trend for festive interior decor this year – framed Christmas prints. I’ve seen them popping up in interior design magazines and DIY hacks are all over Pinterest so I’m certainly going to be following this trend and creating my own festive artwork this year. I love this idea for Christmas decorating because it takes up no room, just a little wall space, plus it’s thrifty – you can use frames that you already have hung in your home and simply replace the images for the month of December with your favourite festive quotes or photos.
There are plenty of ready-made and ready-framed artworks out there to buy, but I think it’s even more special if you make your own. I love the idea of printing quotes over the top of sheet music – an idea that I might use myself to decorate my bedroom for Christmas, which will tie in with the makeover ideas I’m planning. And this is the perfect opportunity to design a piece of artwork yourself, simply hop on the computer, type out your favourite festive quotes and print them out. Make like a graphic designer and use different colours, fonts and text sizes to add interest to your prints.
You don’t only have to stick to quotes – images from Christmas films, vintage christmas cards and your own festive family photos can be collaged together on the computer to create a unique artwork that is personal to you and your family – maybe get a copy printed out for each family member and you can all hang your festive artwork each Christmas from now on.
