Christmas is just around the corner, so what a better occasion to put them creative juices at work, if not this. I like self-made gifts because they end up being something unique, let me and my imagination play, and also can come really cheap. For this table cover I used half of a fabric rest one can buy in IKEA for only 1 Euro. Found a pattern I liked (in a big book with patterns from traditional art of countries all over the world), copied it on cardboard and cut it. Then, simply place the pattern over the fabric and, with a brush, spread fabric paint over it. Now, it’s just drying and waiting to be nicely packed and given away as Xmas present.
