I LOVE Christmas decorating. One of my favorite memories from my childhood was getting to go to my grandparents house and seeing all the festive decorations and I really found my passion for decorations.
While both my grandma’s had different decoration styles, they did show me that traditional decorations can be changed to fit what you might like in your home. They also showed me that decorations don’t just belong in the living room or family room.
In comes my Christmas kitchen!
When I say that Christmas makes me so unbelievably happy, I mean I love the spirit of kindness and giving. The music and the colors. The beautiful lights, but I really love my Christmas bows. Here’s an old throw back picture of my home from before I made some of the updates that I had done and I have to say I’m so pleased with the evolution of my home.
Now onto the bows, its really super simple. I recommend finding a thick ribbon that has wire to provide some structure, the wire also helps keep the bows in place.
I tried to put bows on every cabinet but I felt the look was very cluttered. So I downsized to an alternating pattern as you can see.
I got the large exterior bows from hobby lobby but any bow with a twist tie will work-or loop a twist tie through the back of the bow.
There are pre-made cabinet bow kits but I liked the larger full bows and the smaller ones for my shorter cabinets.
I use packing tape to secure the ribbon at the tops and bottoms of the cabinet faces because it holds to the ribbon material better and comes off fairly nicely as well. I’ve tried other styles of tape and didn’t find it to hold as well with my ribbons.
So. Grab ribbon, a couple bows, and some tape-and bring a little bit of extra fun to your kitchen!
