Simple Holiday Decor

I saw this idea today by Jenn over at Peas and Crayons.  I loved how she put the festive paper in her glass cabinets.  I was super jealous because I don't have any glass cabinets.  (i am too messy for glass cabinets!!)  She suggested using a frame instead.  So I covered my paintings that are next to my Christmas tree.  They were orange before, no surprise. I was thinking I could make some festive paintings for next year, but this was way easier!  It only took 10 minutes!!  It probably would take less time if you don't have a 21 month old trying to sit on the paper and paintings while you wrap them. 

I used 2 different kinds of paper.  The plain chartreuse paper looked too plain so I took some leftover paper and cut out a snowflake and taped it down with the white side up.  I didn't tape it totally flat, it pops up off the painting.  

Peanut Butter is obsessed with the tree.  He likes to touch one light.  Now the whole room looks more festive!  Thanks Jenn!!
