I put up a small tree in my bedroom every year. This year I knew I wanted to make a few changes to it, but not start from scratch…that would be way too expensive. In the past I had used an icy blue ribbon with cute ornaments shaped like high heeled shoe, and handbags. I also use some silver accents and some fuzzy white ornaments. I found a really cute spool of ribbon at Sam’s club that had a chalkboard sort of feel and I used that as my inspiration since it would work with much of what I already had. Then I found some ornaments at Michael’s that looked like chalkboard tags with some red and green accents and then in the dollar section I found some blank gift tags that were wooded and looked like little chalkboards. Just like that…..a project was born!
Each package had 2 tags in it and they were only $1.00 for each package…..Cha Ching!! I already had a couple of white chalkboard markers from another project and I also had plenty of red ribbon ornament hangers so there was no expense there. I decided to clip off the twine hangers they came with because the larger tags I had also found had red ribbon hangers so I wanted to coordinate them.
Having taught elementary school for about 10 years I have pretty decent print so I knew that would be a safe route for me to take for these. It is difficult to mess up polka dots and snowflakes so I also did a few with those. Again…this was a really simple project like the wood slice ornaments. Here is how they turned out…..
I am really happy with how this tree came together this year and I spent less than $30 for all of the new additions.
Have a Great One All!
