Our house has gradually been getting more and more festive. Think there is only one more project in my back pocket, until I can count our decorations as done! Last year we had only been in our house for a couple months and Christmas quickly came upon us, but this year was so much fun to put thought and energy into making our home festive and merry. Our mid-century modern furniture mixes perfectly with our vintage bulbs and decorations that were hand-me-downs from my grandma, aka actually mid century. I DIYed the modern wreaths below and added some hand-crafted wood beads to balance the glitter with a little scandinavian understatemnt. What do you think? What's your favorite part of your house to decorate? Despite what these photos show, mine is the outside.

What you need.
- printed photos
- Martha Stewart Circle Cutter (just bought this thing for this project and can tell it's going to get a lot of use)
- cutting matt
- scrapbook paper
- 1 1/2" ribbon
- 5/8" ribbon
- glue gun
- glue stick
1. cut the printed photos into circles, I did 2".
2. Cut slightly larger circles from the scrapbook paper, I did 2 1/2". Use the glue stick to glue the photo in the center of scrapbook paper circle.
3. Cut circles from plain card stock or scrapbook paper, same size as the circles you cut in step 2. These will be the back of the ribbon.
8. Use glue gun to layer thin tail on top of the thicker tail. Glue under the pleated ribbon and hurrah! You have a pretty ribbon gift tag!
* this project looks like it will tak a lot of ribbon, but actually I made 5 or 6 tags with one roll of wide ribbon.
