Creative Decorating With SheetsSheet
sets are good for more than just making the bed. There are many home decor projects that you can tackle using a set of sheets
. A little sewing know-how and a little creativity will go a long way. You’ll be able to freshen up the look of your home while saving money, especially if you hit a sheet
set sale.On The Bed
Create a custom duvet cover by sewing two matching flat sheets together, leaving one end open so you can slip the comforter in. At the open end, use buttons or a hook and loop closure to keep your comforter in place. If your duvet is a dark color, use white sheets to line your duvet cover so the color won’t show through.
At The Table
Sheets make wonderful place mats, napkins, table runners and tablecloths. Try a solid color sheet for a tablecloth or runner and your napkins and use a coordinating pattern for the place mats. All it takes for these projects are the sheets, some cutting and a little hemming and you’ve got beautiful custom table linens.
On The Couch
New pillow covers are an easy and inexpensive way to freshen up the look of your living room or bedroom. Making your own custom covers from sheets found at a sheet set sale are even better. Not only will you get a custom look, you’ll save money. Best of all, these pillow covers can be thrown in the washing machine when they get dirty.
