Christmas banner 2Elfing continues here between work, raising children, and hosting cookie swaps.  And eating too many cookies.  We don’t have quite enough Christmas decorations for this much larger living space so I was scrambling to make it look a bit more festive.

So here’s a quick project for you:  cut triangles from scrap fabric – mine are about 9 inches tall and 7 inches wide at the top.  If you cut with pinking shears you won’t have to do much else.   I zig-zagged mine to a few lengths of ribbon – one spool was just to short, and two overlapping looks nice.  You could just glue your fabric triangles to ribbon.  Leave enough ribbons on each edge to tie to a hook or another ribbon.  Hang with command hooks (my weapon of choice since we don’t own this home.)  I made this in the hour before guests arrived for the cookie swap – quick and easy.
