Lately I've been mildly obsessed with stripes so naturally I wanted to incorporate them into my holiday decor. Specifically black and white stripes with shades of green. I felt this would work best in my dining room because the black would help ground my table without looking too goth.
Here are a few DIY tips to get this gorgeous expensive look for less. Number one, use what you have ie your outdoor summer lanterns, greenery from your yard etc. Number two, don't be afraid to scale big, as long as your guests have room for their food and wine you're good to go. Number three, mix real with fake, I do this all the time, the real is too expensive and the fake is too sad but mixed together they look full and lovely.
Okay, to make the bow, simply loop the wide ribbon and tie it with the twist-tie.
Loop again and tie again. Repeat as desired.
Lastly, I hung some ribbon on the windows - easy and chic.
