Framed Holiday Decor with Christine

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Hi Ribbons Unlimited Fans!  Christine joining you again today! I'm so excited that it is the Christmas Season and today I have simple way to add some holiday decor to your home.

 One thing I like to do is switch out some of the pictures in my picture frames for a Christmas look.  I go very simple!  All you need is a vibrant piece of Christmas patterned paper.  This one comes from Doodlebug Design.  Then if you add ribbon you can make it look like the top of a present.

I added a real simple bow (that doesn't look simple.)  First of all the key to making this bow easy and with lots of dimension is to use wired ribbon (for this one I used the Luxor Wired Metallic Ribbon in red).  To make it simply cut 7 strips of equal sized ribbon.  Fold them in half and staple the ends together.   Then lay 6 out to look like the base of the bow.  Cover up the mess center with one more in the middle (use some good fabric glue and it sticks in nice and easy).  Then use your fingers to puff them up and make them pretty!  I also left the glass off the frame, so that my bow wouldn't get smashed back down!

Hope your holiday season has started off wonderfully!
