I shared on Instagram tonight about the contentenment of the season. About how we can feel like our decor isn’t good enough as we scroll through instagram or maybe forced to buy all new Christmas Decor items every year. Though my job is to bring daily inspiration here on the blog and social media, I truly hope that you don’t feel like you need to change your decor as much as I do or buy all new things each season. Sometimes the best items are collected and classic.. whatever makes your home & family feel cozy for the holidays. Today 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 could be something that you forget about while browsing the aisles of Target….
Ribbon! Yup… good old classic gift wrap ribbon. I have a serious obsession with collecting ribbon when I visit different shops. Something about the patterns, textures, & colors of the gift wrap ribbon that inspires me. I collect little spools of ribbon throughout the year & one of my favorite[& most affordable] ways to decorate is using ribbon in different ways from hanging wreaths, draping on windows & mirrors, laying on dressers and in centerpieces, & more… the options are endless! Here in the sunroom I used this amazing ribbon I found at Target a while back [HERE]. I found myself needing something to finish off my little vignettes & I really didn’t feel like buying anything more for my Christmas Decor, so I took out my ribbon and incorporated it into the space.
On the mirror I draped it over the sides & 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 thing ribbon can be? A super affordable tree garland! And as it’s intended, using ribbon on gifts under the tree is the perfect finishing touch if you are one to wrap your gifts early so that they are part of your decor. Innovative? Maybe not. A smart way to finish up your holiday decor and give it some cozy interesting texture? YES!! I gathered up some fun ribbon below for you guys.. you can just click on the images to shop them. I hope this post left you feeling inspired & gave you a new idea for your holiday decor this year! xx
