Seasonal Art DIY: Fabric-covered Shoe Box Lids
DIY + How To
Okay this is another one of our DIY projects that will require a little imagination. Go grab a handful of shoe box tops and put to the side. Now head over to your local fabric store. Walk in and survey the space, do you see a one rack that seems to have a lot of colors of the current holiday coming up? That’d be the seasonal section. Head over there and brace yourself for what we’re about to suggest.
So part of the problem of having a modern home is how to incorporate a lot of the holiday/seasonal cheer that starts showing up in stores; mostly because a lot of it is ugly (sorry, ugly holiday decor fans). That’s why we love the idea of covering some shoe box lids in fabrics of the season: it’s an easy, cheap way to add a hint of color/pattern in a really modern grid of handing rectangles on a wall, maybe in a dining room for a punch of festivity or maybe over a mantel. The point is, you can control how “cutesy” your seasonal fabrics get. Go crazy and get fabrics with fall leaf patterns or just go for a bunch of fall colors. Grab half a yard each and wrap the shoe box tops like presents and hang!
