Happy after Thanksgiving! I enjoyed the food, hope you did too! Now it is time to get into full Christmas decorating mode! Have you noticed all the beautiful plaids around lately (especially at Target)??? I have fallen for the plaid. This year I might add some plaid to my Christmas tree in a simple way with these easy plaid bow ornaments. I didn’t know I was so into bows until my little baby came along. Love, love bows, but they aren’t just for little girls anymore! Dress up a tree full of them. Plus, they are no sew!

Start by cutting out a rectangle of fabric (mine was about 6 inches by 12 inches). Any size will work and a variety of sizes would look beautiful on a tree.

Fold the two long sides in an inch each.

Then fold in thirds with a little bit overlapping.

Tie twine around the middle of the folds to form the bow. Make sure to knot it and tie it tight.

Tie a thicker piece of twin around the middle of the bow and knot at the top to form a loop to hang the ornament on the tree.

Cut a small piece of trim to fit around the middle of the bow to hide the twine.

Use hot glue to secure the trim on the back of the bow.

Let glue dry and hang your bow from the tree.

I love how it turned out. The red plaid will look perfect against the green of a tree or pop out when decorating a white tree.
