Christmas has arrived at the shoppe, and we had a wonderful holiday open house this past weekend. Thanks to all of you who came out and visited us on the grey winter day.
Some of my favorite things in the shoppe this season are the sparkly ‘bows’, for lack of a better word. The bows magically appeared via my right-hand woman, Gayle. She whipped them up just like you would a normal bow, but they just seem more festive than the traditional ribbon.
You could probably make these in a smaller format with sparkle stems, but we have rolls of sparkle wire in the store, if you’d like to try making a larger one for yourself. I think they have much more impact if they are a bit bigger.
We also experimented with some yarn bows, and I love how they turned out – amazing! I always love trying old tricks with new materials. It’s pure Christmas joy! (Ok, that may be stretching it… but still, they are my favorites in the store right now.)
Either of these bows would be a great addition to your holiday decor, a big gift or perhaps the top of your tree!
Welcome to the holidays! -Julie
