Sometimes when we’re scrolling through all of the posts on social media, we feel like our décor isn’t good enough or our home isn’t beautiful enough. Especially during the holidays, when you’re looking at beautiful Christmas décor. If you’ve felt these feelings, you’re not alone but I want you to try something. Instead of feeling like you need more, choose to embrace the holiday season with contentment for the season.
My job is to bring daily inspiration to you, but I truly hope that you don’t feel like you need to change your décor as much as I do or buy all new things each season. Sometimes the best items are collected and classic. With contentment in mind, I wanted to bring you a super affordable way to decorate and finish off every single vignette in your home. It’s not groundbreaking, but it is beautiful!
Ribbon! Yup, good old classic gift wrap ribbon. Decorating with ribbon for the holiday season! I have a serious obsession with collecting ribbon when I visit different shops. Something about the patterns, textures, and colors of the gift wrap ribbon inspire me. I collect little spools of ribbon throughout the year and one of my favorite (and most affordable) ways to decorate is using ribbon in different ways from hanging wreaths, draping on windows and mirrors, laying on dressers and in centerpieces, and more. The options are endless!
In the sunroom, I used this amazing ribbon I found at Target. I found myself needing something to finish off my little vignettes and I really didn’t feel like buying anything more for my Christmas décor, so I took out my ribbon and incorporated it into the space.
On the mirror, I draped it over the sides and secured it with putty. On the tables, I left some on the spools and pulled it out a little bit to drape over the centerpiece. Another fun and affordable ribbon project is creating tree garland. And as it’s intended, using ribbon on gifts under the tree is the perfect finishing touch if you like to wrap your gifts early, so that they are part of your décor. Innovative? Maybe not. But it is a smart way to finish up your holiday décor and add some cozy interesting texture. I gathered some fun ribbon options below. You can click on the images to shop them. I hope this post left you feeling inspired and gave you a new idea for your holiday décor this year!
