In addition, I finally got to try making tiny little bows on forks that I have seen all over Pinterest. I found the pin that had the most clear cut directions to me and found Stamping with Di.
Basically, first you loop the ribbon around the whole fork:
Then slip the "under ribbon" over the top of the "over ribbon" and in between the tines of the fork below the loop:
Then bring the "over ribbon" around and in between the tines of the fork above the loop:
Pull tight, flip the fork over and tie a knot:
Flip back over and slide off the fork and you have a little bow:
So I added the bows to a few of the mice and decided to copy the little mason jar idea Sarah had as well. I picked up some fake snow, battery operated candles, and a cheap evergreen pick while at Michael's buying the ribbon and used some little decorative cups from my Grandmother's house that I had. I also picked up some cheap ball ornaments from Target's dollar spot to add in some more red.
Here is my staircase for Christmas!
