So usually we got the classy route of white lights, flashes of gold and green, a few sentimental ornaments. This year...we are going classy trashy...and I must say...it is quite a happy classy trashy. I had a sweater of bright pinks, reds, lime greens and a touch of purple and grey and with the addition of a little green ribbon, they screamed Christmas to me. So I stocked up last Christmas on bright pinks and reds and lime greens at Target (90% off of course) and this year, our Christmas is a little more festive, a bit more bright, and a little less classy.
The sweater was simply cut into square pieces and hot glued to old ornaments. I hold the material in the palm of my hand, place the ornament on top and then start hot gluing around the top of the ornament. If you have any bulges, the addition of the ribbon can hide a multitude of sins.
