Dear Diary,

We love all the light pastel decorating décor popping up in photo shoots – like Kourtney Kardashian’s nursery with gold, pink and white tassels! Just stop it, so cute! We are obsessed with the girlie décor trend! However, we wanted to put a little bit of a different take on tassels and needed a decoration with more volume. We headed to the ribbon aisle at our favorite craft store and couldn’t contain ourselves…$100 dollars later we ended up with six spools of ribbon and lots of enthusiasm. A couple hours and some mimosas, this knotted ribbon décor was crafted and we looovvvveee it.

Perfect for any event, it’s simple and can really add that much needed detail. Here’s a couple tips we picked up when making ours.

1. You want to have at least 5 different color ribbons, and use different types of fabrics – it adds more texture.

2. Measure the area you want to hang the décor, and cut the yarn several inches longer. You want to make sure you have enough yarn on each side to hang it.

3. When tying on the ribbons -tie two ribbons on a time, followed by three ribbons, then one ribbon, it will variation to the end result…! Also cut the ribbons different lengths.

It takes some time, so grab some girlfriends, champagne and make it a night. It’s worth it.
