Why Turning a Dress Into a Keepsake Makes the Perfect Holiday Present
By Lindsey Radoff and Jennifer Manroel, Old New Borrowed Redo
Whether you light the menorah or decorate the Christmas tree, the goal is to find that perfect, one-of-a-kind present to gift to those special people in your life. With the holidays quickly approaching, finding that perfect present can be a tedious chore. If you want to give a unique and sentimental present, here are some ideas that begin by looking in your closet!
If you are looking for a gift for your friend (a former bride) and her new hubby, you can take the bridesmaid dress you wore in her wedding and turn it into a pillow, baby blanket, throw blanket or picture frame. You can incorporate fabrics and prints that she loves, or stick with the holiday spirit by adding red, green or blue fabric.
If you want a unique gift for your Mom, creating a keepsake from her Mother-of-the-Bride dress is a special gift she will love. Embroidering names, initials or dates to the keepsake makes a great finishing touch.
The holidays are also a perfect time to treat your self to something special. You can take your own wedding gown out of the closet and turn it into a keepsake you can display in your home.
For those in need of a great stocking stuffer, Old New Borrowed Redo also has you covered- from small pillows and picture frames to sachet bags and gift certificates are perfect to add to any stocking.
Don’t let the holiday time and gift giving stress you out. Just think outside the box and look no further than your closet.
