Ribbon bows are a great way to add style to your holiday décor. They provide an old-fashioned vibe that takes you back to a simpler time. Their vintage inspired look is terrific in a variety of applications.
Ribbons are also simple and inexpensive. Unlike other ornaments, they will never burn out or break. You can get large spools of them that will last for years.
Start your Christmas decorating by buying ribbon spools in a variety of colors and textures including lace, red, green, print, glitter and more. Then look forward to using them in the following ways.
Add Them to the Tree
Ribbon bows make a great addition to the Christmas tree. You can tie them directly around branches or add them to ornaments to enhance their look. If the ribbon is wide enough, you may also want to wrap it around the circumference of the tree to accompany your garland.
Tie Them Near Windows
Windows are a common focal point for Christmas decorations. You can easily add ribbon bows here by tying them so they dangle from your curtain rods. You can also tie them around the chords you use to adjust your shades or the handle you use to turn your windows. Alternately, tie them and place them in a festive arrangement on your windowsill.
Hang them From Your Wreaths
Ribbons will look terrific when tied above or below a Christmas wreath. Simply tie one around the top or bottom of your wreath to add some pizzaz. It will bring a burst of color to your decorations. For an extra splash of vintage cheer, consider accompanying the ribbon with some silver bells or a French horn.
Hang them From Your Stockings
Stockings typically have some sort of latch that helps them hang from the mantle and this is the perfect place to add a ribbon. You can tie a short bow with a long tail or a larger bow with a shorter tail. Either way, it will be a terrific addition when it comes to making your fireplace a focal point.
Use Ribbons on Gift Boxes
Gift boxes are often adorned with some sort of bow. Instead of using those store-bought adhesives, give your gifts an authentic look with a lovely ribbon. They will be the perfect complement to plain brown paper wrapping giving presents a beautiful vintage appearance.
Ribbon is simple use, and it will elevate the look of your decorations. It will provide a charming appeal that will make your holiday design picture perfect. How will you be using it to make this season unforgettable?
