Interesting decorating idea

Yesterday we went out as a huge family (8 people) for a great lunch at a mexican restaurant. Portions were huge, Mom and I split a burrito and both of us were stuffed. Anyway, at the restaurant, they had done some interesting holiday decorations — handing ornaments from the roof. The result was lovely and different from anything else I had seen before. The concept is easy. Use long lengths of curling ribbon to create a loop on the ornament. Ornaments hand down about 6 inches. Curl the extra long strands. Then use a push pin to hook the ornament into the ceiling. Density should be an inch or less between ornaments, although a couple inches can look ok. And you can use a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Having reflective ornaments is better. Here’s a photo of the effect.

Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
