Get Creative With Your Bed Covers And Pillow Cases

Pillow CasesEveryone wants their home to be a comfortable place where they can relax. And, believe it or not, the way your home looks plays a very important part in this.

Since your bedroom is the place where it is most likely that you will want to rest after a long day of work, making sure that your bed covers and pillow cases look nice and that their material is comfortable is very important. However, bed covers do tend to wear out and you will sooner or later have to replace them with new ones if you want to reap all the benefits of a beautiful and cosy bedroom.

Despite what people might say, changing your bed covers is easy. Once changed, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should throw out your old bed linen. For some creative bed sheet upcycling ideas, read on…

For Your Dog
If you have a dog, you should know the fact that bed covers can be an excellent choice for its bedding, especially if they have nice designs. Your dog will love you even more for his new bedding!

For Your Home
You can use old bed covers as a tablecloth. You can actually get creative with this, since you can cut and re-sew back multiple sheets for a unique design. Do make sure to iron them thoroughly to give them some stiffness and use the new tablecloth on your outdoors furniture or (why not?) on your indoors one as well.

Rugs can actually change the entire way your house looks and – if you did not know this already – you can use old sheets to make rugs. You will simply have to tear them into strips and use the strips as crochet material. Eventually, they will turn into an original rug that’s full of personality – a rug you can place anywhere around your home.

For Your Kids
If you think back to your childhood, then you surely must remember how great it felt to build a fort out of bed covers. Your kids will most likely love it as well. After all, this is something that does not get out of fashion, since kids will always love forts and offering them with some sheets to build a cute indoors fort may be a great way of encouraging them to leave the computer off for a bit.

Also, if you have a girl, she may love to spend some quality time with you stitching doll clothes out of old sheets. Although this may seem an old-school game, the truth is that both of you will enjoy doing this: she will have a chance to stimulate her creativity and you will have a chance to ‘go back in time’ and play with dolls once more!

If you like scrapbooking or if you simply have to help your kids with school projects, then you can use old linen to cut pieces that can be easily glued down. Since most of the modern linen products have interesting designs, they can make for a pretty and creative project.

If you’re considering purchasing new bed linen, to give yourself some choice, why not take a look at the Dunelm bed covers range.
