A step-by-step video tutorial to learn how to hang wreaths on windows + how to add ribbon and bells for an elegant Christmas look.
Every year, I get asked this one question over and over at Christmas. And it’s so simple, that I’ve hardly ever thought about sharing a tutorial.

I’ve been adding little bits of Christmas here and there in the living room.
With it being pitch black by 6pm, the twinkle lights do my mood SO much good. I’m a total crabby person in winter. It probably explains why I don’t live in a state where it snows often. Haha!
Twinkle lights and cute wreaths and pretty ribbon is my saving grace right now.
