heirlooms :: Christmas bows
Thursday, December 9, 2010 by {darlene}
I got quite a bit of mileage out of repurposing Grandma’s beautiful tablecloths. Stockings! And a Tree Skirt! And Bows.

So Finally, I had one tablecloth that came from Grandma that was heavily stained. It was made from a basic linen, so the fabric was not heirloom quality. This is what I used to make our Christmas ribbons.

I use the ribbons to decorate our wreaths, our garland, and most importantly, the top of our tree.
It is our “Greatest Gift of All” bow, and it is a very special part of our Christmas traditions. After all, Christmas is merely enhanced by decorative beauty… but our most beautiful and precious gift came quietly, and was placed in a manger.

This bow reminds us of the Greatest Christmas Gift of All:

And these bows below are such a pretty addition to our banister garland every year.
{although, never mind the unpainted walls. this pic was taken just after our big renovation project. Now – 3 years later – Paint job IS in process!}:

Hoping that you are enjoying the process of getting your home ready for the holidays!
