tree

Thanks everyone! If anyone happens to have any tree pics I'd love to see them. I've never done two things at once. Maybe I'll try ribbon and beads this year. Do you do one layer beads, one layer ribbon?

Most of the time when I use ribbon, I cut it into different lenghts and tuck in randomly around my tree. My beads I wrap them like garland. And yes, I've used both ribbon and beads together.
I'm not a fan of tinsel garland on a tree so I never use it. But I like a garland of flowers on my tree that coordinate with my color scheme.

There's just something about Garland that I like seeing more on trees, I think it tends to look better in my opinion, I like seeing some beads here and there, but for the most part, i'm a Garland person.

I don't use any of it now, but I have used garland in the past. MIL & mom use bows & ribbon, just on different trees.
