I may never be one of those people who experiences a life of balance and routine. I tend to give the most attention to whatever is in front of me, and I’m easily distracted.
To prove my point, I wrote that first sentence an hour ago. My daughter needed me for a second, then I sent my husband a text. I started doing things in the kitchen and the next thing I knew I was eating chips and wondering what to tackle next. Then I remembered I had this blog started in the office…Welcome to my life.
This season, I found myself busy with some unexpected projects, and then I moved my craft room into a larger space, and really, I can’t believe its already the week of Christmas and I still hadn’t made myself a new Christmas decoration!
This craft is so simple and easy, but I love the way the finished product looks. You can use whatever medium you prefer; I’m a total burlap and spanish moss girl, but you can really use anything you want, and you can make it fit any budget. I used a 15′ burlap ribbon I bought from Hobby Lobby when I was stateside, but you can use cut up and re-purposed old sweaters, or jeans, or even just buy some fabric you really like! Cut it into strips, you don’t need to finish the edges, it’ll all be part of it’s unique charm.
For me, my total cost for this pair was &15 Cdn.
I’d love to see a photo of yours, if you make some!
Materials & Tools Needed:
Finally, you can spray the whole thing with glitter (I didn’t but it would be cute), and use command hooks to hang it up somewhere! Remember to hang it when storing as well, I don’t think they would be boxed very well.
These would be great just as individual pieces too, if stacking them isn’t practical for you. Just wrap them and embellish them with whatever you love, and then stick them into whatever display you have. Indoors or Outdoors, with lights or without… they’re totally going to be your own, unique creation ❤️
