I started wrapping gifts last night and decided to change things up a bit and not rely solely on ribbon to finish off my gifts. Given my love of ribbon I know this must be shocking but what I came up with adds a bit of fun and whimsy to my gifts.To make pom-pom ties you’ll need: Cording (available from any fabric store and available in tons of colors) Sparkly Pom Pom’s (purchased at Hobby Lobby) Hot Glue Gun How to: Cut cord to fit around gift box ( plus several inches) Glue a pom-pom to each end of cording Tie your Holiday Pom Pom Tie around the gift! Happy Gifting! I’ll have more holiday gift wrapping ideas for you next week!

Hi there and Happy Saturday
I haven’t had any time this week to pull together links for my Weekend Reads post because I’ve been busy holiday decorating for clients. So instead I thought I share with you a few images of what me and my elves have been up to.
You may have seen this Thanksgiving centerpiece that I created for a client on instagram. For Thanksgiving we were going for lots of layers, texture and depth….
After their big Thanksgiving dinner, I went back and simplified the centerpiece for a more intimate Christmas party they are having.
I used a lot of the same floral stems and added ornaments, berry clusters and sparkly copper ribbon pieces. The silver tray will hold a grouping of copper candles.
I’m participating in the Oh, hello friend Holiday Advent Swap and created these festive gift bags to hold the items I’m sending my swap partner Taylor. The decorative pennant papers you see on the outside of each bag is actually a gift tag I incorporated into the design. Taylor can pull these tags off and use them in the future for gift giving.
This is a part of a staircase garland I created for a client. I love the look of the mixed greens and the oversized bow and ornament cluster.
This beautiful mantle garland mixes faux greens with magnolia leave and wide plaid ribbon. My client is hosting 4 holiday parties so I’ll be changing out the magnolia leaves often to keep the look fresh.
Here’s a look at another home I decorated. The color scheme is a mix of gold, copper, bronze and wine. And of course a little animal print thrown into the mix.
Up close detail of the tree…we used different ribbons to create bows around the tree which helps to punch up the design.
And one of my elves decked out this chandelier with a bevy of beautiful ornaments.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks but there’s still more decorating to do. Plus I’ve got to finish the décor at my homestead.
I’ll be back next week with lots of holiday diy projects and a look at my holiday décor.

It’s the holiday season and that means gift giving time. One of my go-to gift wrapping supplies during the busy holiday season is gift bags. I usually don’t but the pre-decorated bags but instead opt to decorate my own to create something unique and special for my family or friends.
Gift bags + Craffiti Direct Stamps = Stylish Holiday Gift Packaging
To create this gift bag I started with a simply brown Kraft bag. I love the look of Kraft paper with traditional Christmas colors.
I then used my circle cutter to cut 4″ dia circles from red tartan plaid paper and white card stock.
Next I used one of the Yes Chef stamps designed by Jennifer Garant and stamped the chef on wheels in the center of my white cardstock circle. I then added some color to the design using Prima Markers and hand scripted the Eat, Drink and Be Merry message along the bottom. A classic red and white diamond print ribbon finishes off the circle.
The last step was layering the plaid and stamped circles onto the front of the gift bag and adding a red pom-pom as my bow.
This fun gift bag is being filled with libations and treats and I know the person receiving this will definitely Eat, Drink & Be Merry!
