Holiday Decorating-Ribbon Tip!

Hello Shiplappers! We are inching closer to the Christmas season and I have begun decorating,  starting with outside.  I started with outside mostly because I dislike the cold and I really do not enjoy having to do tasks that require manual dexterity when my hands are freezing!  I had a vision for what I wanted my holiday wreaths to look like this year. The only problem was that I could not find the beautiful ticking printed ribbon that I wanted to hang my wreaths with.

Solution? Make my own! Well, not literally. I found 3 different sets of ribbon in varying widths and combined them to bring my vision to life. It really was the easiest little project, and now I have a custom, one of a kind ribbon!

Here’s the complicated process:

1. Buy desired ribbon in varying widths
