Ribbon can enhace the look of your Christmas Tree

Ribbon can enhance the look of your Christmas Tree

Christmas decorating ideas have changed dramatically over the years. There was a time when  Christmas decorating was as simple as stringing cranberries and popcorn,  placing pine cones and berry sprays, and selecting a few handmade Christmas ornaments for the family Christmas tree.  Baubles and candles at best.

Over time the tradition evolved into Christmas tree lights and lovely elegant garlands.  Many Christmas ornaments are  elaborate and an art piece of their own accord.  The holiday design trends are no longer the traditional reds and greens.  The elegance of silver and gold and everything in between currently express  Christmas holiday themes.  Yes, with the vast assortment of colors, textures, and original designs we have an endless opportunity for Christmas decorating ideas.

Handmade Christmas Ornaments add a touch of style and class

For instance decorating a Christmas tree with ribbon doesn’t have to be in bow  form.  Ribbon is an excellent filler whether applied vertically, horizontal or with a drizzle and flow effect.  Decorating a Christmas tree with ribbon can be stunning.

As we explore the different Christmas decorating ideas this holiday season, I will enjoy sharing examples and ideas that may encourage and inspire your holiday decorating experience.  From transitioning with fall decor to Christmas splendor it can be as simple or diverse as your imagination will allow.

Being from a very traditional tree-decorating family, I admit I don’t have the flair to make my tree stand out. And then I come upon Decorating with Ribbons. How simple and elegant. I do believe I can do that, and will demonstrate the new look this Christmas.
