For the past two years I have left this up during Christmas, but have added red berries to it (you can read about that HERE):
But since I am doing a white and cream theme for Christmas this year, the red berries weren't going to work. I turned the window around and painted the luan board white. I added some narrow wood trim boards for a frame and screws for a ribbon star.
I had a cream colored lace ribbon from Michaels. It didn't stand out enough so I coffee stained it. The lace ribbon by itself was a little too pretty for me so I wrapped jute around the star three times to roughen it up a bit.
A few other white and natural touches completed this side of my shelf.
And the best part is that when Christmas is over, I can turn it around and go back to my blue art.
