Create Decorations with What You Have on Hand

I rolled green ribbon around and empty cardboard tube to make a green tree inside of a glass tree candy jar.

I am amazed at the things I can create with stuff I have already on hand. I had a roll of green, velvet ribbon that I used to make curtain tie backs. I used them some years but decided they didn’t fit my theme this year.

I have a glass Christmas Tree candy jar that I wanted to display between two of my angels. It got lost against the blue wall. Rolling up those curtain ties made a nice green tree.

I taped the ribbon fragments together before I rolled them around the cardboard tube.

The ribbon made the candy jar stand out.

I wanted more gold in this tablescape and found a piece of gold, lace ribbon that was just the right length.

My green runner was too long, but that was easily fixed by folding a portion of it under.

We don’t need to shop for items in the store, check out your storage area for ribbons and lace!
