This is a fun way to dress up the dining room during the Holiday Season!
I wanted a "seamless" look without looping the ribbon and having a tie or loose ends to deal with. Aleene's line of Dry Adhesives produts help me achieve the look I wanted!
Aleene's Tacky Tape Runner (Available at Michaels stores or IlovetoCreate.com)
Aleene's Tacky Dot Roll (optional)
Step 1: Measure and cut your ribbon to the desired length. Apply of strip of tape with the Tacky Tape Runner to the end of the ribbon. Thread it through the loop on top of the ornament and press the ribbon closed to secure the ornament between the layers of ribbon.
Step 2: Apply tape to the opposite end, hang over the "arm" of the chandelier and press closed to create a loop.
Step 3: Repeat as many times as you'd like. I wanted mine to be more "full" by having the option of hanging ornaments on different places than the crook or bottom of the chandy arm. I used the small Tacky Dots to place on the metal arm, then pressed my ribbon in to and hung an ornament. This worked great!!! I was able to hang ornaments at all sorts of different angles.
I LOVE the seamless look these products helped me achieve! and YES the tape and sticky dots have held up great! I haven't had any problems. The strength of the products has been perfect!
Don't you love the little owl ornament? He's from the Martha Stewart line! :)
