Garland “Alternative”
Written by on Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Every year, I place lighted garland at the top of my kitchen cabinets.

This year, I created a simpler, yet just as dramatic idea for decorating the tops of my kitchen cabinets.  I found a felt ribbon that has a jingle bell embellishment sewn along its length.  Using 3M poster strips, I had no problem hanging the ribbon and getting it to stay in place.  And the 3M strips are not only removable, but they do not damage your wood or walls, according to the package guarantee.  It’s a much simpler alternative to hanging garland for those of you who are very busy, this time of year, and need a quick decorating idea.


If you want to see how it looked, with my other holiday decorations, feel free to check out my newest holiday video:

    On your gingerbread tree, I see so many of my same ornaments. I have ornaments similar to your lollipop topper. So I made my hanging ornament into lollipops like yours and I love ’em! I saw the same babies first Christmas ornament my 25 year old daughter, Sarah, has! the teddybear carousel!

      I am living for the time being in a camper. I’ve always decorated for every season, but with limited space it’s not easy this year. I thought that maybe I would go with one theme thru out the camper. Thanks to your website I have decided to go with the Gingerbread, I already had some items and am excited to get started. Thanks so much for the wonderful ideas!
