As I mentioned before I’m working with Third Floor Design Studio (the HOT NEW videographers on the scene, check out their other work here) to do a series of 5 Holiday Videos! The first video was: Decorating your Christmas Tree like a Total Party.

Now for this giant wall bow! I used this fab bow over my mantle (my mantle decor is my next video!), over my advent calendar and to fill some space behind my tree!

My trick is using an embroidery hoop to keep it looking fab, so check out the video for the full how-to!


1. My fuzzy sweater is from Forever 21, you know, cause I’m 30, I added that bow to it with a safety pin

2. The HO HO YEAH print is from Read Between the Lines

3. And the original tutorial for the flouncy fun bun bow is here!

I hope you’re enjoying these videos almost as much as I enjoy making them! haha
