Looking for something Christmas or Holiday to hang in place of prints

I am looking for ideas of things that I can hang in place of the two prints on each side of the metal hanging. (I plan to put a huge wreath on it or in place of it) I've been trying to find something that is a set of two long things or a set of four. I can't find any winter scene or Christmas prints that are large enough. I don't want to put plates there because I have them elsewhere and I want to be able to use/hide the existing nail things under the prints that are there. Warning: I AM NOT SKILLED IN CRAFTINESS. :) Help!

    What size are your framed prints that you are wanting to replace for the holidays?

    Hi. About 20x20" each.

  • Why not think about a really beautiful wrapping paper and "wrap" the pictures? You could even add some beautiful ribbon to match the wreath. Or find some frames and frame the wrapping paper? There are so many metallic and beautiful papers out there. Just a thought...

      @The Garden Frog with C Renee Well, you took the words right out of my mouth.

    Oh My GOSH that would be AMAZING!!!! What a great idea!! Thank you Thank you!!!! And the thing that makes that an even more special idea is that these pictures are really deep so they're the perfect shape to make great packages. Yippee!!! Now I will begin to obsess over the right paper. lol

    beautiful dining room and I love that wall paper. Two long panel cabinet doors spray painted with red and throw a big beautiful gold or white bow at the top and a wide ribbon down the center to look like a present would work, too.

      @Amy R well Amy you did a great job. The wall looks wonderful and I love the colors you chose.

    yes, I was going to say wrap them! I do this a lot for decorating at Christmas and you can change the colors every year!

    You could use decorative ceiling tiles as wall art or decor. We have PVC tiles available that resemble tin tiles and measure 24x24. We also have 20x20 styrofoam tiles available that can be painted or faux finished for a variety of unique and creative looks. You could even frame the tiles in shadow boxes. www.deborahdesigns.net

    I Love all the ideas. Love your space and your décor. Another idea, that I used is square wreaths. Creating 4 square wreaths from garland the size of the solid color mat boards. Decorate with beautiful ornaments and poinsettias, and hook each wreath to the top of each frame. The garland wreath will frame out the center of the art. I did this with my dinning room mirror. It turned out beautiful. Finish it with a tall Christmas arrangement in the center of the buffet replacing the white vase. Just another idea, you won't have to take down your artwork. What ever you choose I know it will turn out beautiful.

    I would do a silver & white

    I have used pictures from calendars and inexpensive frames. Hobby Lobby will make matts very inexpensively.

      @Sue Drats it must be a mid-west thing? I hope they come east!

    Help answer this question...Wrap them!! One year I wrapped my hanging pictures like packages!! Adorable!!

  • All the above are fabulous ideas. Also you could make portrait pictures of your kids, grandkids or animals. Print their side profile, then cut it out in brown or black paper and put it in the center of each frame, or add red for Christmas color. Just another idea.

    • Amy Rohde Amy Rohde on Nov 17, 2013
      @ConcordCottage.com with Lisa Walsh Huff Kroll That's a very sweet idea!

    Man, I suck at bows... I think I might need to buy some pre-made bows...but here is the finished project.

      @Donna J yes, I would have a grand time doing that!

    What a Fab wall !

  • Donna J Donna J on Nov 17, 2013
    @Amy R Sorry. I did not notice that the shades were Christmas shades. They just need a bit more red or even some greenery to give them a punch and be noticed. The ornaments also would be more noticeable if you put a little red bow on each of them. You can get the narrow ribbon with gold edge and have some long streamer. This would compliment the bow on your wreath also. And don't forget to search the internet for "Christmas decorations for chandelier". You would be amazed at what you can do. Have you started on your decorating already? I am getting the urge to begin but would wait until next week Friday. By the way, do you have plans to decorate the column in the dining room? Go ahead and do it. Your Hometalk friends would help you with ideas and your friends and family would be giving you compliments all the way to 2014. Here is a photo I pinned on Pinterest. You might like it too. Happy decorating!

      @Donna J Thanks! No worries! I have been working on the chandelier and will post a pic when it's done. and yes I snuck a headstart for Christmas decorating (tee hee) Only on the inside though.. I'm not crazy enough to do anything outside. I searched pics like you did and found some really pretty ideas! Now I'll have to think about the columns but there are 7 of them in that area so if I do one, I'd have to do them all..Now I'll be searching that too.

  • Brenda Jones Brenda Jones on Nov 18, 2013
    A very simple ideal would be to use xmas wrapping paper to wrap the existing frames intact.

  • Amy Rohde Amy Rohde on Nov 18, 2013
    OK I finished the chandelier (I think). More later maybe...

    Hello Amy,

    You could hang Christmas Swag Tails either side and drape a garland over them!
