Decorating your home is something that can be very challenging and very rewarding at the same time. There are many different ways you can decorate and making your own crafts can be one of the most rewarding ways to make your house both beautiful and functional. Here is some more information on plastic canvas crafts that you make to decorate your home.
The possibilities for making crafts for your home are nearly endless. One of the most commonly thought of plastic canvas crafts is a tissue box cover. And while many people associate this with a dirty bathroom in their grandmother’s house, there is much more to this simple craft than you may think. Because of the new color options with yarn, this plastic canvas craft can be very attractive and functional at the same time. It is very difficult to find a tissue box that fits or matches most styles of decor and many wonder who decides on the box designs that are normally so ugly. But covering it up retains the functionality of the box and also adds some color and some flare to the style of the room. The plastic canvas tissue box cover is basically 4 walls’ of plastic canvas that easily fit over a standard size tissue box and an attached top with a convenient hole in the top to pull out the tissues. And although many people automatically think of looking the bathroom for facial tissues, you can put them anywhere in the house with this great craft and have them look good at the same time.
Parties are hosted by people all over the world and cold drinks of some kind are almost always served. This is a problem especially if the drinks are going to be sitting for long enough for condensation. This forms water on the outside and bottom of the glass or can the drink is in and it can wreak havoc on any kind of wood surface like a table. A coaster is a great way to preserve the beautiful look of your wood table without scratching it or quitting using it. A plastic canvas coaster is a great idea because it is attractive and functional at the same time. They are also great because they can be very compact and store away quite easily when the party is over. Most coasters made from plastic canvas are going to be about four inches by four inches, but they can be in almost any shape. There are even premade plastic canvas pieces that are in the shape of a perfect circle so that you don’t have to cut square pieces and try to make a circle. For added protection, you can put cork on the underside of the coaster to make it even easier on the table and other furniture it will be sitting on.
Place mats are another variation on the theme of the coaster but simply much larger. They can help protect your table from spills and scratches that can be made by spilled food and the dishes that are used for meals. The same concept applies, but in a larger scale. Finding plastic canvas the right size for a placemat is more difficult, but it is possible. Because of the larger size of the working area, a placemat can also have a more intricate or involved design than a small coaster. And you can even make coasters that match the same colors and theme as your place mats. No matter what you choose to do with plastic canvas in your house just make sure that you are creative and that you do what you like and what works best for you.
