Anyone with me?
Well, if you are, you'll love my quick Christmas towels.
I decided to dress up my pretty pine server with a few red and white linens. I liked the basic look, but they were just not festive enough for the holiday. They needed a little embellishment. However, I love these basic towels and use them often, so I didn't want to do anything drastic that would prevent me from displaying them in July or October, so I grabbed a safety pin and got to work.
I literally pinned that wreath (a leftover from last year) to the towel using one small safety pin, careful not to make a big hole in the fabric. I can reposition it, remove it to wash the towel and take it off for good when Christmas is over! So ~ I mean no sew~ easy! The ribbon is a bit more permanent. I quickly basted it on. I actually like it a lot and it's not really holiday related in any way, so it can stay.
However, since it's on with a light stitch I can remove it in a jiffy. If you don't sew, you can iron on a ribbon, use an iron on tape or hot glue it. Hot glue just doesn't generally do well in the wash.
I didn't need to go to running to the store for the perfect accessory, I didn't need to spend a dime, I didn't add to the stash of holiday stuff I may or may not ever use again and my little festive pop took me less than ten minutes to put together.
I'll share a little secret...I taped the towels to the inside of the drawer to secure them. The kids and the hubby go in there sometimes and I didn't want the towels to keep ending up on the floor. That's just not festive at all!
I am very happy with my rustic kitchen display. I am basically done decorating and can't wait to show you the rest very soon! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season so far and making it simple...not stressful!
