#Fabulouslyfestive Ornaments

I am so pleased to be working with Joann Fabric and Craft Stores to Celebrate the Season!

This month I was asked to create something #Fabulouslyfestive for the December holidays!
In an effort to use some of my glass ornaments, that are no longer safe on my tree, I came up with an out of reach for little hands solution!

What do you think?


So far I love it, and everyone that have come into my kitchen has loved it! 

Want to create you own?

You'll need:

A curtain rod
Ribbon
Scissors
Hot glue gun, Hot glue sticks
Ornaments
Don't forget your Joann's Coupon! 
 (at the end of this post!)

Ready to get started?


To start, I hung up my curtain rod. I measured down a foot from my ceiling and made a mark.
Then, I started my screw on the mark. Then added the hardware.


Next start adding ribbons!
I would put the ribbon over the rod, and then glue where the clip is in the picture.



Continue to add ribbons until your rod is almost full. For the length I just eyeballed different lengths, some short some long. Remember you can always cut shorter, so I went with longer and then adjusted after the next step!




Continue to add ribbons until your rod is almost full.


Lastly, add your ornaments! I just threaded the ribbon through, pulled the ribbon up the back and glued.
Just like I did for the tops.


At this time you can adjust the spacing, by sliding the ribbon along the rod,  and adjust the length of some of you ribbons.  Overall this is the hardest step! 

What do you think? 
I'm loving it! It's the perfect amount of color, and decorations for my kitchen! 
I also can't wait to add some non holiday decorations to the curtain rod!

Running out to make your own?
