5 On Friday: Mad For Plaid – 5 Ways To Use It In Your Home
I am absolutely mad for plaid and I will share with you 5 simple ways to use plaid in your home especially at Christmas!
I am simply mad for plaid and now’s the time of year to bring it!
In my book, you only need small doses of plaid in a room. Too much plaid is, well, too much.
Here are 5 ways to add just the right amount of plaid to any room, especially this time of year.
Plaid Decor Ideas
Stack together a few books wrapped with plaid wrapping paper on a table, it looks especially nice at Christmas!
Create plaid pumpkins with washi tape, which is the perfect look at Halloween.
Just for the season – switch out a lampshade for a plaid one.
Don’t forget the outside. Cover inexpensive clay pots with plaid fabric. Great for displaying mums!
And last, but not least…decorate your sheep. Sorry…gotta have a little fun!

So, how about you – are you mad for plaid like me?
I love plaid!! It may be “in” this year but I think it’s timeless! I really like the idea of covering your books — Is that paper or fabric?
Hi Marisa. The blog that I pulled this idea from says that it’s paper that they wrapped the books in and applied ModPodge to. You’re right – it’s hard to tell from the photo if it’s paper or fabric. And I agree with you – plaid is timeless.
I love plaid during the Christmas season. Those sheep are so funny!
I thought so too, Penny. What a crazy idea! Wonder if anyone really did that.
I love touches of plaid, Suzy! It is such a classic and timeless pattern. My hubby has been noticing all of the plaid shirts for men in department stores recently. In fact, he bought several yesterday! It has emerged as a hot fashion trend this season; but, it’s always been in style!
You’re right, Shenita – plaid is one of the few classics that never seems to go out of style. I’m old enough to remember the old flannel plaid shirts from the 70’s. They were a hot item!
I love plaid too! I love all these ideas, especially the table lamp! So cute!
Thanks for stopping by, Maria. Glad to “meet” another plaid lover!
How fun. I love that plaid lampshade, way too cute. Thanks tons for linking to Inspire Me.
Love that plaid lampshade! Oh, and those sheep too!
I never knew that I wanted some sheep until I saw those! ;-P
Look out sheep! *L*
HaHa – I love those sheep!
