My 7th Favorite Holiday Decor Item: Ribbon

My seventh favorite holiday decorating item is ribbon. 

Ribbon adds softness and color to most displays. It also adds an organic shape because you can twist and turn it to create "movement" in your decor. There are so many options available so the sky is the limit when it comes to selection.

I like to select ribbons in various widths and finishes (shiny silver and matte silver, for example). You can also use different values of the same color for a clean, monochromatic look. For example, if you decorate with brown, find dark brown, medium-brown and maybe a light bronze colored ribbon to bring visual interest to your displays.

I also love ribbons with wire edges because they are easier to shape.

How do you decorate with ribbon during the holidays?
