Christmas in Plaid

Did you Celebrate Christmas in Plaid? I know I did ( my title) and it showed up on my tree and in Crafts I made this Christmas. Lisa

Crazy for Plaids:

Today, the word “plaid” simply refers to patterns inspired by traditional tartan designs. Tartan and plaid’s association with Christmas comes from the Scottish folk who wore their tartan plaids at the Yultide festivities during the cold winter months.

Plaid Door Wreath:

My friend Ashly made this wreath for my front door. From items from Hobby Lobby Christmas collection. Red and black plaid is mixed with the Black and White (Checkboard pattern) with other seasonal ribbon to make this cute wreath.

Red Plaid history :

Around 1850 a designer at the Woolrich Mill in Pennsylvania created a plaid like the traditional Scottish Tartan called Rob Roy (Or Old MacGregor). … The wool plaid shirt was warm and durable and the red color was quite vibrant. It quickly became a staple for the outdoor workers of the time

I grab some reels of ribbon at the Dollar store to make this simple Bow Topper for our tree.

Scrapbook page : Crafts

I grab this plaid scrapbook Christmas pack from Hobby Lobby. I used the scrapbook paper, tags and die cuts to make this fun Snow page of my son.

I covered these Dollar store cardboard boxes with plaid scrapbook paper and stickers.
