Holiday Blog Tour

As I did last year, I’m taking part in a fun and unique holiday blog tour, in which all of the authors have been replaced by elves. J Come take a look…

Hello there! Elf Krafty Kelly here. It’s that time of year again…time for holidays, egg nog and one of my favorites, creative crafts. Each year, my mini-elf (aka my daughter), Ella Elfy and I make a different creation to share with our family during our holiday celebrations. This year, we’ve chosen a lovely window treatment. Here’s what you do:

First, get a dozen shatterproof Christmas ball ornaments. We used 2 colors, but you can use whatever colors strike your fancy.

Second, cut thin ribbon (we used one with snowmen and one with penguins) into twelve strips of different lengths of your window. Some should be short and some long so that when you hang them from your window, they will be staggered.

Third, thread one end of the ribbon through the hole in the ornament and tie a knot.

Next, tie the other end of the ribbon to a curtain rod. Your ornaments will hang in a row in all different lengths in front of the window.

Finally, wrap garland around the curtain rod so you can’t see the ribbon ties.


Enjoy your beautifully decorated window.
