Happy Monday! We hope you had a great weekend! We got some winter/campfire family pictures taken (can’t wait to see them), hit up Zoo Lights (on possibly the most crowded night of the year…), and watched Home Alone (forgot how much I like that movie!), making for a super fun Christmas-y weekend.
Today we are happy to share this little Christmas project using some beautiful supplies from the Ribbon Retreat! We shared this over on their blog last week. Check out their blog HERE for tons of adorable and affordable Christmas ideas! This is a super simple project to add some real charm to your Christmas set up.
Here’s what you need:
- Wood or Paper Mache letters
- Frayed Chiffon Grass (about 1 yard)
- Gold and Silver buttons
- One wood dowel cap
- Styrofoam cone
- Hot glue
- Gold Ribbon
- One toilet paper tube
- White paint
To start, paint the letters white. Our letters are 8 inches tall, like THIS one.
Done! Now let’s do the pretty tree. Use some fluffy white yarn and simply wrap the styrofoam cone with it. Use a bit of hot glue at the top and bottom.
For the trunk of the tree, we used a piece of a toilet paper tube. The tree just needed a little something on the bottom. We simply wrapped the tube with the pretty gold ribbon and hot glued it to the bottom of the tree.
The letters have a beautiful snowy kind of look, and paired with gold? Perfect. We are totally crushing on all things white and gold.
Have a great Monday everyone!
