Decorating for the Holidays with Custom Canvases

Everyone loves the holidays  because they are filled with family, joy, generosity, good company and good food. Whatever your traditions are, we all have those special memories and traditions that have made our holidays magical throughout the years. As the years go by and family dynamics change and grow, we look back on past holiday’s which remain some of our fondest lifelong memories. This is why custom canvases are great for personalizing your household’s holiday decorations! With October kicking off the start of the holiday season with Halloween, we can tell you how you can incorporate a custom canvas into your holiday decor! Who really wants to walk into their home to a six foot tall witch that will let out a cackle at every passerby? Blowing up photos from past Halloweens, photos of pumpkins you hand carved, or a creepy haunted house you went to as a tradition adds a personal touch to your decorations without turning your home into what looks like a holiday themed antique shop or garage sale. hand turkeyDuring Thanksgiving time, remember those finger paint “hand turkeys” and all the fun thanksgiving art your little sister made? Now you can preserve these precious pieces on custom canvases simply by taking a photo of the art or scanning it, then uploading the image onto a canvas!

Much like how Mom still hangs up the Christmas ornaments you made in grade school (even if they are falling apart), we think that the photos you took at the mall while sitting on Santa’s lap when you were five can add a really fun personal touch to your home,  instead of sitting in a photo album all year long.  A custom canvas is also a great way to decorate your home for the holidays without completely ruining the decor or theme of your household.

Custom canvases are an amazing way to bring family memories, old and new to life and remind everyone of  these good times throughout the season!
