It's the most wonderful week of the blogging year! Jennifer Rizzo's Holiday House Walk is always amazing and it starts today!! I have been busy decorating our home for the last couple of weeks and I can't wait to share our Holiday Tour on Friday. Today, I am sharing how I made some plaid ornaments for our family room tree and you just may get a few glimpses of our mantel too!
I wanted a way to affordably add some plaid to this tree. I found the perfect plaid ribbon for 60% off at Michaels and decided to wrap it around styrofoam balls. It couldn't be easier. Here's what you'll need:
First, cut the ribbon into strips that fit around your styrofoam ball.
Then simply wrap the ribbon and secure it with a pushpin on the end. Before adding the last ribbon strip, add a piece of twine tied into a loop to hang it from the tree with. That's it!
I love how having a bunch of the same ornaments makes our family room tree look a little more cohesive. This is the tree where the kids display all of their collected ornaments so it can get a bit haphazard looking.
I also added a snowy look with some cotton "snow" from Walmart and stuck it in between some of the branches. The white "snowball" garland is from the Target Dollar Spot.
