Filled to the Brim

Festive red-and-green plaid ribbon, cream and gold accents and oversize wooden snowflakes give this lightly flocked tree an abundant look that's overflowin­g with cheer. Jennifer Voelkel of The Craft Patch blog says the inspiratio­n for the tree started with the plaid ribbon and then just snowballed from there. She wrapped the tree horizontal­ly with the ribbon, tucking it into loops in the branches, and then wound a smaller red pom-pom garland around the boughs as well. She popped red berry sprigs into various spots and hung shimmering balls and wooden star ornaments here and there among the greenery. A Fa La La banner even finds a spot near the top. But the wow factor comes from the oversize snowflakes. Only a few are needed to make the tree really stand out.
