Simple Christmas decor

Tuesday, December 13, 2011







I love the natural, simplistic christmas decoration {not to mention what a beautiful home!} featured in this house belonging to the owners of the design firm Les Ensembliers. The greenery looks so rich against all the white. Nature provides us the most wonderful adornments, does it not??

If you liked it then ya should a put a ribbon on it.

I shared with you how to use fabric to create a custom mat here. Today, I wanted to show you another simple way to create a customized mat, this time with ribbon, that is as cute as the custom art it surrounds!

Robert's cousin, Melissa, recently had a baby and I ordered this sweet 8"x10" print from mosieposie.

I bought a frame that came with an 8"x10" white mat. 

I could have just popped it in and called it done. But, I knew I wanted to add a little punch.

I found a cute striped ribbon at Wal-Mart that had the same blues and greens in the print. 

I cut 2 pieces 10" long and hot glued them across the top and bottom. I used the edge of the mat as my guide.

Then I cut 2 pieces 12" long and glued them down in the middle leaving the edges loose. 

I folded in the corner to create a miter, making sure the corners met up, and pressed it with my finger. Using hot glue, I glued it down.  

I put the glass back on top.  

Much cuter, don't you think?

Drop it like it's Christmas!!!
