wrap it up | with glitter and bows

I’m taking advantage of the holiday weekend by showing a good friend around my new city. I wrapped up a present for her daughter’s birthday with a bit of glitter ribbon! It was really easy to make by coating ribbon with spray adhesive and sprinkling glitter right on top. The sparkle brings a nice touch of glam to go with the gift.

Hope your long weekend is filled with glitter and love.

PS. Other links to inspire you until Monday, a Thanksgiving picnic, adorable little notes, calligraphy stamps, a hair bow to wear anywhere this winter, pretty photo calendar, artwork from leaves, and a guide for getting rid of stains this party season!

Plus, in case you missed it, my favorite advent calendar and advent wreath (can you believe it is almost here!) more holiday goodness coming next week.

    Love it when “glam” decorating ideas are actually so simple! Thanks for this! (And that photo calendar you linked to is great, too.)

    I can add glitter to anything but this idea is super genius! I will have to keep this in mind anytime I want to bling up a Christmas gift. Thanks so much!
