Okay, Okay, I hate to break it to you but Christmas is less than six weeks away. I know we haven't celebrated Thanksgiving yet but it's time to get the Christmas ball rolling. I have a really simple project to get you in the mood if you aren't already, but before we get started you have to see my granddaughters Christmas Tree.
This is Zsa Zsa"s girl, isn't she cute? She is only three years old and she decorated her Christmas Tree about three weeks ago. In addition, she has already made her Christmas list. Her excitement is so contagious it puts me in the Christmas spirit. Now for the project.....
Every year I decorate my interior doors to make them look like wrapped gifts. I found this peacock ribbon at Hobby Lobby last year for 50% off and I really really liked it, so I decided to use it for this project. Here's what I did to achieve this look. I started by unwinding the ribbon from the spool and then I stapled it together on the back side of the door. Easy, Easy, Easy.
Next, I glued a piece of cardboard onto the front and back of the ribbon to give the ribbon some much needed stability. The cardboard will come in handy when I apply the floral spray.
This is a closeup of the ribbon, I love the rich colors and all the intricate details.
Once the cardboard was in place I added the floral spray along with some floral wire. I ran the wire through the spray and wrapped it around both pieces of the cardboard. This keeps the ribbon from folding and it also helps hold the weight of the floral spray in place.
I purchased the Peacock ornament from Walmart for about $1.97 and I used it to cover the stem.
This project would be a great conversation starter for your Holiday guest. Enjoy the pics and Happy Holiday Decorating!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!
