Black Friday and Wrapping Paper
Any Black Friday shoppers out there? I’m not into the early morning hustle and all the crowds so I waited to go later in the day with my mother- and sister-in-law. We had a blast!
One of our stops was Marshall’s where I found two rolls of simple brown wrapping paper for $2.99 each. One was decorated with green trees and the other with red snowflakes.
A Bare Shelf
My only intention at the time was to use it for gifts. But I had the open spot on the top shelf of my hutch that I hadn’t been able to fill. I had been looking for some decor to place up there and hadn’t found anything I liked.
Yesterday I used the afternoon to wrap presents and I had some scraps leftover. Instead of throwing it away, it hit me to use the leftover scraps to make a DIY Christmas banner to hang across the empty space on my hutch.
DIY Christmas Banner
I cut equal size strips of paper, alternating the two patterns. I folded them in half and cut triangles on the bottom of each piece.
I cut a piece of jute string long enough to stretch across the space. I folded the strips over the jute string and used a piece of tape to hold the two sides together. I used tape to attach the banner to the top of the hutch and evenly spaced the pieces out across the rope.
Here’s how it turned out!
A super easy and quick DIY and it was just what this shelf was needing to complete the look for our Christmas hutch!
