12 Days of Christmas: Day 7

Day 7: Holiday Craft/DIY

Ho ho ho...I suck at crafts! Well that's not entirely true. If you know me, you know I can't scrapbook to save my life. Seriously, it's a disaster. I am okay at some other stuff, but really...not so hot. I am not artistic in that arena. I could choreograph you a great Christmas dance though! :)

I do have a DIY decorating tip, because I love to decorate my tiny baby sized house. I am far from an expert, so this is my little tree cheat. (ha!)

Ribbon on the tree. I love this look but I never knew quite how to get the ribbon to fall nicely from the top of the tree. I figured it out last year! I attached the ends to the inside of the angel. Super easy and it holds the ends in place so I can arrange the long parts down the tree how I would like.

(Imagine a picture here of my really cute purple and gold tree...can't put it up until Dave digs my 4 totes of Christmas decs out of the abyss in the basement. UGH.)

Hmmm...I'm sure I have more I just can't see my decorations so it's hard to remember. A lot has happened since we last put them up!

We did ribbon on our tree for the first time this year and I love how it turned out!

Oooh! That is a REALLY good tip! We always TIE our ribbon to some inside branches, but your way totally makes sense. I love the idea of you "crafting" for the holidays is choreographing an amazing Christmas recital! ;-)

My mom has done ribbon on her tree several times- it always turns out so pretty!
