This isn't your run of the mill staircase makeover, I wanted to achieve a rustic unfinished look for the staircase leading up to our bonus room. Since it was covered in gross carpet, I pulled the carpet away and found potential with some beautiful 2x4 yellow pine. Here is how I finished off our staircase during our staircase makeover.
Come on over to see how to make these adorable Ribbon Christmas trees with stuff you probably already have laying around the house. There are so many variations, pallet wood, scrap lumber, old strips of fabric. I can't wait to see what else can be done.
Since the internet ATE MY POST from last year I had to rewrite the whole post. So here it is. "How to make RIBBON Christmas Trees" from stuff you might have laying around the house!

I chose to add a poofy ribbon tree topper to my Christmas tree this year and thought I would share just how I do it.It really is a simple project to do, it takes very little time, and is relatively inexpensive depending on what you choose to use, and it certainly adds a fun decorator touch with big impact to the top of your tree.
A kissing ball is a fun holiday decoration that can add to your Christmas decor. Kissing balls can be made to coordinate with any of other decorations and can be made in fresh greens or artificial. I will show you how to make an artificial kissing ball you can display throughout the holiday season.
Decorating our home for the holidays is never an easy task for us. We don’t want to spend a fortune on holiday decor, and our house has a bit of an unconventional shape – it has its odd spots, weird corners and difficult areas more than most houses would have. Our portico is one of those areas. Besides being really big and high which would need twelve 6-foot garlands to cover it from one end to the other, with a slightest wind anything you hang there flies away, so I need a heavy duty garland if I want it to stay in place. But, you know what? Despite all its weird corners and odd areas, we love our home, because it is our first house ever! Therefore, instead of complaining about it, we always try to make it work for us, which usually means coming up with weird solutions – like repurposing a faux Christmas tree into an outdoor Christmas garland, :-D. As you may remember, our latest Put & Take find was a faux Christmas tree. Greg didn’t want to take it, as the note on the box said it had some missing parts. Thinking that a branch or two might be missing, we took it home. Then came the slow realization, LOL… H: You see, I was right. It’s only missing some branches. Not a big deal! G: Awesome, my Babes! H: (shortly after) Oh!?!… G: Wassup? H: Yeah…I think it is also missing the main body….I mean the trunk…oh well, I guess I can work with that. G: It’s okay, my Babes… H: (shortly after) Really??? Bummer!! (The branches were two different types. They definitely didn’t belong to the same tree.) Now what to do??… While Greg and Barish were having a great laugh and yammering on about Charlie Brown’s scrawny tree, I was waiting for a light bulb to switch on over my head. And oh boy! Did it light ever so bright! I was going to repurpose the faux Christmas tree to an outdoor Christmas garland. With the idea, I immediately got to work, and not only did I make a lovely outdoor Christmas garland from it, but also two clip-on Christmas swags for our garage, and a faux 8-foot-tall Alpine Christmas tree for our living room. After making all that, I still have more than enough branches to make some small pathway trees, two big kissing balls and a couple more swags. I guess when I finish the rest, I will also be helping Greg and Barish to pick their jaws up from the floor. LOL.
For the past few years, I’ve (Vicki) strung lights in the tree above the sidewalk to my front door. The branches are now too tall to comfortable reach so I needed a new way to have lights over the sidewalk.
We decided to use PVC pipe to construct a structure on which to secure lights. We first used PVC pipe when we made a “tent” for grandson Tyler’s bunk bed. That’s where we learned it was pretty bendy in the smaller diameters so we thought it would be the perfect material to use.
It must be noted that our final design was our second try at a PVC arch. That’s the cool thing about designing a DIY project. Sometimes it works out in the original design, sometimes it's necessary to develop a plan B! ...
