A few more ideas of how to use knitting in your home decoration:

  1. Make tiny knitted “socks” for your chairs’ and tables’ legs. They will look fashionable and will prevent the carpet from scratches.
  2. Knitted glass pads are also a smart decision
  3. You can use yarn to make pillow cases for the vases – this type of decoration is very suitable for the cold winter months.
  4. A couple of colored balls of yarn look extremely fashionable in a tall, glass vase.
  5. For Christmas you can make a wreath of colored yarn using traditional festive colors – red, green and white.

How to properly take care of the knitting?

You may store it in moving boxes or if you have purchased it carefully examine the label from the store as it will explain the best way to take care of it. If there is no label or you are the one who have created it, find out more about the yarn it is made of so that you can know how to properly wash and iron it.

Some knitting should be washed in cool water only while others – in hot one. Wash them well and use special fabric softener to keep the knitting soft for as long as possible.

A Few Unusual Ideas For Decorating Your Home by Guest Writer Ella Andrews

If you are not keen on traditional ways of home decorating you can always go for some nontraditional ways of doing that. We can assure you that your friends are going to love your place. As you know most people prefer to stick to traditional ways of making their dwellings more comfortable and cosy. That is why an innovative approach to the matter is always welcome.

People are used to thinking that bedrooms as a rule should all look in the same way – a bed, a chair and that is. But this is not obligatory. You can always think of some clever ways to renovate the room. Many people place their mattresses directly on the floor so that they can be closer to the ground. This is an interesting idea that you can make even more unconventional. Hide the mattress under a colourful tent made of a couple of veils. This will turn your bedroom into a real fairytale in Oriental style. Another interesting solution for your bedroom is to use a mannequin where you can put the clothes you are about to wear on the next day. Or you can simply use different combinations of clothes and colours to decorate it and use it to brighten your room mood.

This is the most difficult place to decorate as actually you do not have a great choice on what exactly to decorate. You cannot place a flowerpot on your oven after all. However, you can still experimentalise and play with the kitchen lockers and shelves. What you can do is replace or relocate the doors of the lockers with small curtains in colourful and bright prints. You can choose flower prints, dots or anything else you like that makes you feel good.  But you can go even further – you can use the box of your old TV to store your collection of books.

Decorate the bathroom

Instead of buying new shower curtains you can use a couple of towels to serve you with the very same purpose. Or you can alternate a shower curtain with a towel. This decoration looks quite interesting. Its only disadvantage is that towels are more difficult to get dry but it is worth it.
