Make Unique Christmas Decor With Help From The Mini Bowdabra

Make DIY Wreath for Christmas in July Decoration Easy DIY Christmas Decorations Ideas

Hi everyone! Tammy here today with a fun and unique Christmas decor tutorial. I love the holidays but I have to admit with retail starting Christmas in July, sometimes by the time Christmas is here, I am over all of the red and green. This year I decided to create this fun wreath out of some leopard ribbon as the neutral background and red and gold metallic ribbon and silk and burlap flowers.  Leopard print ribbon may be unconventional for Christmas but that is what makes this unique Christmas decor. Sometimes that is just what you need to take a project from ordinary to extraordinary!
