Hello, hello. It’s Emily here from The Benson Street. I am so excited to be hanging out with you today. I know it is still only November, not even Thanksgiving yet, but it might be time to start thinking a little bit about Christmas! Have you noticed all the beautiful plaids around lately (especially at Target)??? I have fallen for the plaid. This year I might add some plaid to my Christmas tree in a simple way with these easy plaid bow ornaments. I didn’t know I was so into bows until my little baby came along. Love, love bows, but they aren’t just for little girls anymore! Dress up a tree full of them. Plus, they are no sew!
What you will need for these adorable plaid bow ornaments:
- plaid fabric (or any color or pattern)
- hot glue gun and glue
- decorative trim
Start by cutting out a rectangle of fabric (mine was about 6 inches by 12 inches). Any size will work and a variety of sizes would look beautiful on a tree.
Fold the two long sides in an inch each.
Then fold in thirds with a little bit overlapping.
Tie twine around the middle of the folds to form the bow. Make sure to knot it and tie it tight.
Tie a thicker piece of twin around the middle of the bow and knot at the top to form a loop to hang the ornament on the tree.
Cut a small piece of trim to fit around the middle of the bow to hide the twine.
Use hot glue to secure the trim on the back of the bow.
Let glue dry and hang your bow from the tree.
I love how it turned out. The red plaid will look perfect against the green of a tree or pop out when decorating a white tree.
How do you like to decorate your Christmas tree?
